I remember watching an old war movie one time and seeing the proverbial grizzly old drill sergeant training some new recruits. I can still hear his gruff voice as he shouted at the soldiers in the rain: “Rule #1: Protect your head and neck at all times!”
I am sure that most Christians have heard about the full armor of God. In Ephesians 6 Paul details the pieces of armor that the saints are to wear so that they are fully equipped to fight in the spiritual battle that is constantly ongoing. Let’s take a look at why Paul says we should wear this armor.
You may recall that I made a post some time ago about spiritual warfare. That post was concerned with making war with yourself against the things that cause you to stumble.

I have heard so many terms used when referring to the study of a passage of Scripture. Some will say you have to bathe in it, some will say you have to soak it in, and some might say you have to wrestle with it! All good phrases that simply mean you have to spend time in the passage in order to help yourself fully take in what is going on. However, as good as it is to soak in a passage of Scripture it is even better to be run over by it…
Do not answer a fool according to his folly, or you will be like him yourself. (Pro 26:4 NIV)
It is better to teach than to mock!
Grace and Peace,
