Ephesians 6:10-18New International Version (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Integrity. Integrity does not meaning perfection. Don’t appear different way to different people. You cannot have a business personality, a family personality, a friends personality, etc. A Christian is the same regardless on who is is interacting with. What you see is what you get.
Righteous. Purity of heart. Keeping my motive clear and clean. Even if you do the wrong thing, you wanna do the right thing. Have pure motives.
Peace. The gospel of peace. Peace with God, myself, and fellow people. Serenity is working and living peace.
Certainty. Certainty is faith. Trust God when all is going wrong in life. The more I love Gods word the less I worry about earthly problems. Gods truth is whether you believe it or not.
Integrity is attacked with lies. Righteousness and purity is attacked with lust. Peace and serenity will be attacked with worry.
Salvation. Protect your mind. Sanity. Protect your mind from evil thoughts.
Maturity is using the bible against the devil.
Spirit. The word of God is our weapon.
We are to live peace and speak it. We want to live peace but not speak it. share Jesus with others.
Fiery darts of the devil
Doubt. Did God really say that?
Prayer is how we fight the battle with the devil.
