Ephesians Study Day 22

Today we continue with Chapter 6 with these words:

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

The wiles of the devil. Often, we’re tempted to think that “the devil” or Satan is an old concept, but that’s not true at all. The reality of evil is very present in our world today, not just in demon possession (though that’s also very real) but also in terms of demon seduction – being seduced to do and say and think things that we know we shouldn’t. It’s very much of a reality, and we need the whole armor of God to withstand those things. We’ll talk about the armor of God tomorrow, but for today, let’s talk about the challenge of being a faithful Christian in a world that can, at times, be very evil. Here's the video:

And here’s a wonderful video entitled Bless The One, by Mack Brock, which reminds us that nothing can stop us because God has conquered hell!
