Armor of God: The Word of God

We have come to the final piece of the Armor of God! Let's take a look at what Scripture says:

"...and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:17

The sword of the Spirit is significant because, out of all the armor mentioned, this is the only offensive weapon. The other items we have read about help to defend us from attack. The sword of the Spirit is what we take with us into the fight against evil and darkness.

The sword of the Spirit is the Word of God; His truth as it is written. To use the Bible as a sword means to fight the enemy with God's Word.

When we feel attack from the enemy or experience darkness from the world, we can use Scripture to remember truth, to help us to pray, and to conquer the evil one.

Read God's word, memorize helpful scriptures, and be ready to attack darkness with the Truth. Glide On!
