#tipTuesday - Armor of God
I love a good visual! And this one I just adore for today's #tipTuesday.
When I first learned about the armor of God it was a lot to take in but so neat at the same time. This visual is so simple. Have you buckled your belt of truth? Do you have your breastplate of righteousness? Have your feet been fitted for the gospel of peace? Are you taking up the shield of faith? Have you put on the helmet of salvation? And do you have the sword of the spirit? As a reminder as to what the armor of God is:
Ephesians 6:10-18 New 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.
