January 24, 2020 Higher Everyday Devotional :- CHRISTIANS’ WEAPON OF WARFARE.
FRIDAY JANUARY 24, 2020
TOPIC: CHRISTIANS’ WEAPON OF WARFARE.
BIBLE TEXT: EPHESIANS 6:10-18
MEMORY VERSE: “Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil” (Ephesians 6:10,11)
While the developed nations of the world daily invent and manufacture deadly weapons to fight enemy nations, other nations spend billions of dollars to purchase those weapons. The weapons are used to defend their nations from external aggressions and to maintain internal security so that there would be peace, progress and development. And the Christians? According to Gordon Lindsay, “The minister is engaged in a continuous warfare.”
The text above reveals the secret of Christian’s victory over Satan and his cohorts in their journey to heaven. In 2 Corinthians 10:4, the Bible declares, “…the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds.” The Christian warfare is not physical and so depends not on physical weapons. To triumph in spiritual warfare, they must always put on the whole armour of God. The weapons in the armoury consists of currency of the new birth experience, faith, holiness, truthfulness, the word of God, witnessing for Christ and prayerfulness. Victory is sure for Christians that use the spiritual weapons against Satan and the world.
