THE SURE ARMOUR (2)                                              2 Corinthians 6:1-7

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:” (Ephesians 6:17)

(3) Salvation: Our complete victory against the enemy begins and ends with the salvation of our souls. Our fanfare with the kingdom of darkness started in the Garden of Eden when the devil stole the mandate to rule over this world from Adam disobeyed God by yielding to the devil. Adam sold himself and by extension his descendants to the enemy when he sinned against his Maker. This is the reason why Jesus always addressed the problem of sin first before addressing any other problem confronting those who came to him. Before Jesus healed the man sick of the palsy in Luke 5:17-26, He said to him; “Man, thy sins are forgiven thee” (Luke 5:20)

(4) Sword of the Spirit. The sword of the Spirit is the word of God. It is an offensive weapon with which we attack the enemy, and it is powerful through God to pulling down of the devil’s strongholds. Hear what the Holy Spirit says, in Hebrews 4:12 about the power that is inherent in God’s word: “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and of the even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and if a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” Note that it is the word of God that you respect that will work for you when you apply it make it a part of you.

PRAYER LINE: Father, grant me grace to continually treasure and uphold the salvation of my soul, and help me to live by Your word daily in Jesus’ Name. (O.H)
