Take the Christian Faith as Your Shield

Take the Christian Faith as Your Shield

“In addition to all these, take the Christian faith as your shield. With it you can put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”[1]

I was privileged to go to Rome in August. We went to the prison Paul was in while waiting to be executed. I stood on the stones where Paul stood. Paul was on death row in Rome. At the end of Paul’s life, as he sat on death row waiting his execution he said in the last chapter he ever wrote, “I have fought a good fight, I finished my race, but greatest of all, I have kept the faith.”[2]

Corrie ten Boom lost her father and sister in a concentration camp. She got out on a technicality and spent the rest of her life telling people about the love of God. She said, “No matter how deep and dark the hell is, the love of God is greater than all that darkness.”

That’s her faith that shielded and protected her.

Relentless, unwavering faith in God will carry you through every battle!
