Equipping the Saints Pt. 13 - Armor of God

May 23, 2021

As we wrap up our walk through the Book of Ephesians, Josh shares about the "armor of God." These are verses many have heard before, but we may not connect with the armor imagery. What does armor have to do with a gospel message like "love your enemies?" The armor imagery, like Paul's use of "body" or "temple" imagery elsewhere, is a vehicle to explain a broader truth. The armor elements referenced are defensive weapons aside from perhaps the sword of the Spirit, but even that is for protection against attack -- not a tool to bash another. In the end, the armor helps us "stand firm" to engage in conversation with others and share the gospel of peace. Ephesians 6:10-24.
