The armor of God will protect us from the temptations of the devil

Speaker : Seminarian Mark Teifel

Ephesians 6:11–18 (Listen)

11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 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. 13 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. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,

Hymn: TLH 450, st. 1,3,4: Soldiers of Christ, Arise

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. Soldiers of Christ, arise 
And put your armor on, 
Strong in the strength which God supplies 
Thro’ His eternal Son; 

3. Stand, then, in His great might, 
With all His strength endued; 
But take, to arm you for the fight, 
The panoply of God, 

4. That, having all things done 
And all your conflicts past, 
Ye may o’ercome through Christ alone 
And stand entire at last.
