The Rest of the Armor

The Rest of the Armor

Preparing our Hearts to Worship


In an effort to help you prepare for the November 6th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on The Armor of God, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “The Rest of the Armor”. The main Scripture for the day is Ephesians 6:15-17. The other passages are either referenced in the message or provide additional insight for reflection.


(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)

What role did scripture play in Christ’s defeat of Satan?

Why do Christians shy away from memorizing scripture and studying theology if it is our offensive weapon in the spiritual battle?

What passages of Scripture would be most helpful when doubt comes? Temptation? Unforgiveness?

What is your testimony? Can you tell it in 30 seconds, 2 minutes and 5 minutes?
