Armor of God

If you haven't read part one click on this link, Spiritually Fit - No Foolin!

God's word tells us our battle is spiritual, not physical. How can we become spiritually strong? Ephesians 6:10-18 tells us to put on the armor of God so that we may be able to stand against the devil, our enemy.

We are told to put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness. Your feet should be fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. We also need to take up the shied of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the spirit which is the Word of God. Lastly, verse 18 tells us to pray in the Spirit on all occassions with all kinds of prayers and requests.

The bottom line:  Pray, pray, pray and Study, study, study the Word of God.  There's no other way to be prepared for the spiritual battles that will be occurring all the time around us.

Do you have a regimen of taking vitamins and exercising daily?  If you want optimal health you answered, "yes".

If you want spiritual health, your regimen must include daily reading and memorizing God's word, as well as praying all throughout the day.

Which regimen is more important?  Which one will improve your life the most?  They are both good, but one will take you into your eternal life healthy.
