ephesians-6-1711The Sword of the Spirit – Part 1

A soldier going to war without a sword is like a farmer going to the field without farming equipment. The Sword of the Spirit is essential for the believer to win in battle. Here, Paul is not talking about a physical sword. He is talking about the Word of God. It is the inspired, infallible and inerrant Word of God that defeats and demolishes the wicked one.

The battle belongs to the Lord. We do not fight in our own strength, neither do we fight with physical weapons. It is God who gives us the victory. He is the mighty hand that conquers and defeats the enemy. “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony (Rev.12:11).
