The Armor of God

Saturday at Church was another enlightening experience for me & would like to share. The theme was The Armor of God - Divine Protection. be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For your struggle is not against flesh and blood . . ."

We know that evil exists all around us in this world, but we forget that it is also in us. The threat is not just physical, it is also spiritual.

God sent his Son into our dangerous & broken world to protect & care for us, and to show us the way. He sent his Son to redeem us. Why did God do this? Simply because he loves us.

We can find strength in him. God's power makes a way for us to contend against the evil around us, and the evil within us. God's power in Christ brings us inner peace - no matter the struggle around us.

Evil is real but it will never win in the end. God will. His love will endure forever!

Blessings to each of you,
