In our previous teaching time, we talked about the beginning part of Ephesians 6:17 which described to us the “helmet of salvation”. Today we are going to continue reading this scripture where we learn about the final piece of armor, the “Sword of the Spirit”.
We have read that truth, righteousness, peace, and faith are crucial qualities of the Christian life. But these are not the only things that God tells us that we need. In Ephesians 6:17 we read “Take the helmet of salvation…”. Gather your Bible and open to Ephesians 6 as we continue our study together.
It is righteousness that protects our thoughts, our mind, our feelings, and our emotions.
Why do we need this type of protection? And why does God tell us that we need this type of protection?
Think about these questions as we continue the teaching series “Heroic Living” where we look at Ephesians chapter 6.
Today’s message is the first of several in the series “Heroic Living” where we focus on the letter that the Apostle Paul wrote to the believers in Ephesus talking about the “armor of God”. This letter is provided to us in the Bible within the book of Ephesians chapter 6.
