Sunday Scripture


"Put on the full armor of God, so that you can
take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil in the 
heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full
armor of God, so that when the day of evil
comes, you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled
around your waist, with the breastplate of
righteousness in place, and with your feet
fitted with the readiness that comes from the
gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take 
up the shield of faith, with which you can
extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil
one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the 
sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God."

Ephesians 6:11-17

  1. When I took a bible course and we studied this passage I was encouraged to learn that the "rulers, authorities, and powers" were actually dark spirits and angels. I had not really considered arming myself against spirits but it was very empowering. Thank you for reminding me.
