GEAR FOR THE
CHRISTIAN SOLDIER


Finally, 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 our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers,
against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavenly realms.

Therefore put on the full armor of God,
so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything,
to stand.

Stand firm then,
with the belt of truth buckled around your waist,
with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
and with your feet fitted with the readiness
that comes from the gospel of peace.

In addition to all this,
take up the shield of faith,
with which you can extinguish all the
flaming arrows of the evil one.

Take the helmet of salvation
and the sword of the Spirit,
which is the word of God.

And pray in the Spirit on all occasions
with all kinds of prayers and requests.

Peace to the brothers and sisters,
and love with faith from
God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace to all who love our Lord Jesus Christ
with an undying love.


{Injil Ephesians 6:10-18, 23-24}
