Armor of God

Why is the Christian life such a battle? If God wants to bless us, why do we struggle so much and fail so often? The reason is that we have an enemy who works night and day to pull us down. His name is Satan. He began his work of attacking humanity in the Garden of Eden, and he is still at it today. He is stronger and more powerful than we are, and we can never defeat him on our own. So how can we win this war? Paul provides the answer in Ephesians 6 with a great illustration. He tells us to put on the whole armor of God. Using the picture of a Roman soldier’s uniform, he makes application for our daily lives as believers.
