Spiritual Armor: Gospel Readiness and Faith

Ephesians 6:10-20 (focus on vs 15-16)

This passage is about “spiritual warfare” and our need to be equipped so that we can effectively engage the spiritual forces of evil. We can’t do it on our own, so God graciously and strategically gives us spiritual armor so we can be strong in the Lord, stand against the schemes of the devil and stand firm.
