Fiery Darts and Woodpeckers (Ephesians 6:10-18)Alex Smith, November 16, 2016
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Wednesday service
We should take the shield of faith with us to protect ourselves from the enemy. There is no armor for your back, it's all up front. The enemy wants you dead to stop you from doing Gods work. A lot of times we don't want to follow Gods commandments but that's just a fiery dart for the devil. When Adam and Eve was in Th the garden the devil twisted the truth and turned it into a lie in order for Eve to be tricked into eating the fruit. When your shield becomes damaged you must get it fixed. In order to to repair your shield of faith you must repent of your sins. People are dying every day trying to feel good with drugs but all they need is the ultimate drug from Christ and it's His Joy. In four places of the bible God tells us that we should have strong faith. We should ask God to strengthen our faith because we have not because we ask not. Whatever you need fro God we should ask Him for it. Everyone wants to strengthen their relationship with the boyfriend, girlfriend or spouse but when it comes to God their relationship seems to be a weak one. Whether you realize or not, a person is being attacked by the devil all the time. They are trying to shut down the Christian churches not because of money but because of the name of Jesus being mentioned. There is power in the name of Jesus.
