The fourth piece of spiritual equipment found in Ephesians 6:13-17 is the SHIELD of FAITH. Fiery darts are launched at you & me all of the time. The fiery darts of the wicked one come fast and furious, and they are going to continue to come. The only thing that will bat them down is this shield of faith.
Wicked thoughts, horrible temptations, evil enticements…What are we supposed to do?
Paul tells us in 2 Timothy 2.22 to: Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.
God desires us to have a pure heart full of righteousness, faith, love, hope, and peace. These will protect from this evil world.
Be wise today and always – shield yourself from the world with your faith in Christ.
