Christians are under attack every day. The Bible teaches us that our battle is not a physical battle, but a spiritual battle.
Our primary weapons of warfare our prayer and the Bible, the Sword of the Spirit, Word of God.
The helmet of salvation protects our mind, which is where the spiritual battle takes place. We have to renew our minds with the Word of God. The breastplate of righteousness protects our heart.
The Shield of Faith protects us from the attacks of the enemy. The belt of Truth helps us to walk in truth. Gods word is truth.
The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. It is sharper than any two-edged sword. Our feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace.
