Of all the pieces of the armor the Word instructs us to put on in Ephesians 6, only one of the pieces is actually a weapon. There’s a helmet, a shield, boots and a belt, but the only weapon is the Word of God.
“ABOVE ALL … take the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.” Ephesians 6:17 says, “God’s Word is an indispensable weapon” (MSG).
This blog series comes from the story of the “Temptation of Christ” in the wilderness. The devil came to Jesus and tried to get Him off course. Satan tried to trip Jesus up by tempting Him to do things that were not a part of God’s plan.
And every single time Jesus came back with, “It is written!”
Memorize the Word. Eat it. Read it. Love it. Live it.
Say this aloud: I will accept the Word as it is written. I will obey the Word! I embrace it! I will believe it! With God’s help, I will try my best to live it!
