Last week, we overviewed this passage and simply said that as Christians, we are in a battle. We are in a battle for our convictions, our culture, our children, and our churches. As a result, we are in a battle for our families and our future. We are called to take our stand in this battle. Actually, there are 3 main imperatives in this text: Be strengthened by the LORD, Put on the full armor of God, and Stand. Having given these three imperatives, Paul underscored 7 spiritual weapons that we should avail ourselves to as we stand. Beginning today, we will take each in turn starting with truth.
