* Put on the full armour of God so that you can take your stand
against the devil’s schemes.” (Eph. 6:11).
1) First of all, assuming that you’re a child of
God, you don’t have to go buy your armour or make your own,
you already have it somewhere. It’s given to you as a gift
when you accept Jesus as your Saviour. If you’re not a child of
God, you have no armour, nor can you obtain it on your own.
2) Secondly, and pay very close attention to this: just because
you may have your armour, that doesn’t mean you’re wearing
it! If you were already wearing it, Paul wouldn’t be telling you
to put it on! You have the armour of God in your possession,
but you have the choice of whether to wear it or not.
