Sermons about Armor Of God
Closing the instructions to the Ephesian Christians, Paul instructs them to prepare for spiritual battle by taking on the whole armor of God. He explains the nature of the battle (spiritual) and demonstrates how Christ, the gospel, and the several graces we receive in Christ equip us to stand firm in the face of spiritual attack. We need to take heed to these words that we may be prepared in the Christian life to 'stand firm.'
The commission of the church given by Christ is to make disciples by teaching faithful men to obey everything He has commanded us (v. 2) who will in turn teach it to others. That's how Christ builds His church. He doesn't tell us to gather a crowd by tickling their ears of men with amazement or amusement but to teach them to obey everything the Lord has commanded us; hold to the Word; teach it to others ... and through our obedience the Lord accomplishes His eternal purposes.
