The Beginning of the End: Be Strong, Get Ready, & Stand Firm
Series: Gospel Shaped Life
This is the twenty-fourth sermon in a series through the book of Ephesians, "Gospel Shaped Life—How the Relentless Love of Jesus Changes Everything."
The Whole Armor of God  Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.  Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.  For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.  Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. (Ephesians 6:10-13 ESV)
