Ephesians 6:13-15 Living in the Bull’s-eye: Put on Your Armor
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. 1 Peter 5:8-9
… having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. 15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Colossians 2:14-15
To experience in dailyliving the victory we already possess… … puton the full armor of God. Christ has defeated Satan.
Truth: Be honest with yourself, God, and others. Righteousness: Do what you know is right. put on the full armor of God.
But godliness with contentment is great gain.For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, 1 Timothy 6:6-11
Righteousness guards the man of integrity, but wickedness overthrows the sinner. Proverbs 13:6 He who pursues righteousness and love finds life, prosperity and honor. Proverbs 21:21
But now a righteousness from God, apart from law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. Romans 3:21-22
Truth: Be honest with yourself, God, and others. Righteousness: Do what you know is right. Gospel of Peace: Stand in reconciliation to God and others. put on the full armor of God.
How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, "Your God reigns!“ Isaiah 52:77
