As we celebrate the 4th of July, Independence Day, I am reminded of all the heroes that sacrificed to give us freedom here in America. I am thankful to God for all who serve our country. My dad was a Master Sergeant who was in several wars. Steves father was a Colonel. We have two friends that are Chaplains (ministers) in the military. All the people who serve our country are so important. But what if the soldiers were not prepared for battle? Would they win the battle?
Without preparation, the army will not win. The same is true about the army of the Lord! The Church needs to know that we have an enemy, the devil who prowls around like a roaring lion, so we need to be ready to fight! God tells us in Ephesians 6 :10 – 18 about the armor of God and how we can be protected from Satan. We need the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the gospel shoes of peace, the sword of the Spirit, and the shield of faith! Enjoy this fun children’s song taped in Hawaii about the armor of God. Let’s be strong soldiers of God! Holy Hugs!
