Gospel of peace

Able to march in common military step 20 miles in

5 summer hours

In the quicker full step they marched 24 miles

slide4

Ephesians 6:15 –

Feet shod with the

Gospel of peace

“shod” – aorist middle participle of hupodeō(hupo– under & deō– to bind) – to bind beneath; to put on footwear.

In Scripture feet are synonymous with service.

It is the seasoned combat veteran; the spiritually mature Christian Warrior who can serve the Lord to the maximum of their capability & capacity.

The wearing of spiritual combat boots indicates readiness to serve our Supreme Commander wherever & whenever He directs.

slide5

Ephesians 6:15 –

Feet shod with the Gospel of peace

“preparation” – preparation; equipment.

“of the gospel” – euangelion(eu– good & angelia– news).

“the equipment of the gospel.”

The equipment for full preparedness in witnessing is the knowledge of Bible doctrine pertinent to salvation, described here as “the gospel of peace.”

slide6

Ephesians 6:15 –

Feet shod with the Gospel of peace

“Peace” – eirēnē– “even peace” – refers to the Doctrine of Reconciliation.

This command is given to all members of the Royal Legion – EVERY believer is in full-time Christian service.

“Also, having put combat boots on your feet, with the equipment of the gospel, even peace (reconciliation).”

slide12

Ephesians 6:16

“Above all” – “in addition to all these”

NKJV seems to indicate that the Shield of Faith is superior to all the other pieces of armor –

NOT SO!

The Shield is an equally necessary part of the Royal Warrior’s armor.

slide13

Ephesians 6:16

“taking” – aorist active participle (imperative use) of analambanō– to pick up & carry.

We appropriate the Shield by picking it up & carrying it by means of Faith-Rest (the practical, spiritual common-sense application of the Word of God to all situations of life).

“In addition to all these, having picked up & carried”

slide14

Ephesians 6:16

“the shield” – thureos– a large, door-shaped shield.

The foremost of the Roman soldier’s defensive weapons was his shield.

It was constructed of a double-thickness of planks & joined together with glue made from the hides of bulls.

The outer surface was then wrapped with canvas & covered with calf-skin.

slide15

Ephesians 6:16

The shield had an ornamental metal binding made of iron along the top & bottom rims which protected it from being damaged when set on the ground, or from the cutting strokes of the enemies swords.

It was fitted with an iron boss to deflect the destructive blows of stones, long javelins, & other missiles which were in common use.

slide16

Ephesians 6:16

It had 2 leather straps:

One fitted the forearm & enabled the soldier to execute the various commands for the use of his shield in combat.

The other was a sling by which he carried the shield, slung over his left shoulder while marching. HE ALWAYS CARRIED HIS SHIELD WITH HIM.

slide17

Ephesians 6:16

The loss of a soldier’s shield often meant the loss of his life.

A whole manual of arms for the shield was issued to the soldier – he was drilled until he was expert in its use.

The instructions for our shield of faith is found in our very own drill manual – THE BIBLE.

slide18

Ephesians 6:16

“of faith” –

Faith is a system of thinking. It is not lack of thinking or related to some emotional activity.

The majority of everything we have ever learned was learned “by faith.”

Just as we have received the Living Word by faith, so now we walk according to the Written Word – by faith (Colossians 2:6, 7).

Faith-rest is the firing pin that launches Divine Viewpoint into the devil’s world.

slide19

Ephesians 6:16

One way we pick up & carry our shield is by applying the Word of God in normal situations of life (Hebrews 4:1-3).

Remember that Bible doctrine is intensely practical as you face monotony & routine in life.

God has a definite purpose for your life – as you realize His purpose, humdrum tasks take on zest.

You can enjoy life, for you do what you do as unto the Lord!

And remember, “faith comes by hearing, & hearing by the Word of God” (Rom. 10:17).
