Reading: Ephesians 6: 10-18
Everyday, we should put on our holy armor to help us in the battles that we need to fight. We fight daily against the forces of evil and the rulers of darkness. We need to have this armor to help us to defend ourselves and do God's will. We can be assured that when we sharpen our swords and use God's holy armor, we will be victorious in our battle.
As St. Paul tells us, we should put the belt of truth around our waist, and God's justice should be our breastplate. Our shoes should be footwear of the Good News of Christ, and we should be willing to spread it wherever we walk. Our faith is our shield, which will stop all the flaming arrows of the devil. On our head, God's saving power, which will serve as a helmet and as a sword, we will have God's message that comes from the spirit.
This verse also tells us how we can further arm ourselves: never stop praying. Prayer can also be a vital defense that will help us keep alert. Arm yourself every day with God's holy armor. It's a new war each and every time we wake up in the morning. --Chad Herh
