Living Water Bread Of Life

Eph 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.

Eph 6:11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Eph 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.

Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;

Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;

Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.

Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Life is indeed a “warfare;” and just as a man enlists in our army for a term of years, and then his service runs out, and he is free, so every believer is enlisted in the service of life, to serve God till his enlistment is over, and we sleep in death.

Our charge and our armor we shall put off together.

Brethren, you are soldiers, enlisted when you believed in Jesus.

Let me remind you that you are a soldier, you will be always at war, you will never have a furlough or conclude a treaty.

Like the old knights who slept in their armor, you will be attacked even in your rest.

There is no part of the journey to heaven which is secure from the enemy, and no moment, not even the sweet rest of the Lord’s day, when the clarion may not sound.

Therefore, prepare yourselves always for the battle. “Put on the whole armor of God,” and look upon life as a continued battle.

Be surprised when you have not to fight; be wonderstruck when the world is peaceful towards you; be astonished when your old corruptions do not rise and assault you.

You must travel with your swords always drawn, and you may as well throw away the scabbard, for you will never want it.

You are a soldier who must always fight, and by the light of battle you must survey the whole of your life.

~Charles Spurgeon~
