Ephesians 6:13 says, “Therefore put on the full armor of God … ”
If you have made the ultra-wise decision to ask the LORD Jesus into your heart to be your Savior, then you have joined the service! You have become a soldier in God’s army, and He has given you special armor to wear, called the Armor of Light.
This armor is spiritual, which means you cannot see it. But it is very real! The different pieces of armor are listed in Ephesians 6:10-18. The armor includes most things soldiers have: a helmet, a belt, a breastplate, special shoes, a shield, and a sword. Verse 18 also mentions prayer, which also gives us protection.
You can put on your armor every day, by quoting these Scriptures. These are mighty words that King Jesus, the Captain of our Salvation, the God of the Angel-Armies, has given us; mighty armor to wear so we can be wise against the enemy’s plans and block and stop his every move.
So gear up, soldier, and know that in King Jesus, you have the victory!
Can you name the pieces of the Armor of Light? Put them on every morning!
