There is darkness in this world, and God calls us to bring the light of Christ. How are we prepared to do this? The Lord equips us with God’s own armor. As we begin our new series, we learn first that the armor is not forged by us. We are called instead to be strong in the power of God. We also take inventory of our enemy and the truth that the forces of evil are destined to be defeated. Finally, in this first installment of the Armor of God series, we discover God’s invitation to stand, to stand for hope over hopelessness, joy over fear. Wrapped in the power of God’s might, facing an enemy destined for destruction, let us stand.
