Ephesians 6: 10-20
As St. Paul finishes his letter to the Ephesian Christians, he reminds them that they are in a war but this is not a war fought with guns but rather with the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Our foes are not earthly forces or human beings, but they are an army of spiritual beings.
St. Paul then goes on to describe the armor that we are to use daily: truth, righteousness, readiness to speak the gospel of peace, faith, salvation, and immersion in the word of God, along with prayer and intercession. He advises us to keep alert spiritually, persevere in the faith, and intercede for all the saints to have boldness in the sharing of their faith.
