The Battle Stance of the Believer

The Battle Stance of the Believer
(Ephesians 6:10-20)

As we move towards the final words of Paul’s epistle to the church of Ephesus, Paul begins to exhort the believers to stand ready for the spiritual battle ahead of them. This passage makes clear that the strength for us to stand against temptation will never be in our independent ability, confidence, or righteousness. Rather, our hope in this war is always the strength, character, and righteousness of the One who we are called to put our full dependence in: Jesus Christ alone.
