“Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.” Ephesians 6:13 NLT
*“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.” Ephesians 6:13 NKJV
I know we can have a tendency to get up in the morning and put on part of our armor and think we are good to go for the day. I know I’ve done it. However, it says “put on EVERY piece”. That’s where our safety lies. Fighting partly dressed is still not obedience.
*Suggestion: For clarity, read a verse in several translations, often that’s where you get your “aha” moment.
What does your daily wardrobe consist of? Half dressed is not dressed at all. I would say, you wouldn’t go to the store in your PJs, but I’ve been to Walmart. So, I will say it this way, you wouldn’t think of going to work, school, or the market with nothing on but a hat and a pair of shoes, why would it be any different for your spiritual outfit?
