Soldier for Christ Based on Ephesians 6:10-18 (Jerry wrote while listening to a sermon 9/10/11)


Ephesians 6:10-18

Put on the full armor of God each and every day. A soldier puts on his armor to protect his front. He has nothing to cover his back because God has got his back and won’t allow us to be attacked from behind. We are in a war whether we want to be or not. We as Christians have to be on the alert full time. When our faith is tested let’s battle with full faith that it is a battle we are going to win because we have the God that made the universe as our General.

Our enemy has come to steal, kill and destroy – steal your joy of being on earth, kill your soul and let you spend eternity in hell with him and destroy your testimony and family. We need to stay strong and stay in the Word, close to God and ready for battle.

We as Christians have become too complacent and fall too easily. I am talking to myself. We must stay strong and not fall so easily. That’s why I believe we need to meditate on the Word of God, get it deep down in our heart so that we will have something to strike back with when we are tempted.

We need to take our faith as Christians more seriously. We don’t need to play with the devil Monday through Saturday and go to church on Sunday and act like everything is O.K. We as the body of Christ need to be doing God’s work and living the Christ-like life 7 days a week – 24 hours a day.

When we play with the devil it gets easier and easier to sin and we wake up one day and realize that we are far from God. But, if we stay vigilant and not cross the line the first time, then we will not have to worry about that. That’s why I am going to stay strong in Christ daily and meditate on the Word of God and do what He wants me to do – with His help and might and power.
