This morning at my church service the Pastor taught from the latter portion of Ephesians 6 on ‘The Whole Armor Of God’. This is one of the first parts of Scripture that I ever read and studied in depth on my fantastic journey.
This week I’m celebrating the 4-year / 48-month anniversary of when my Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ rescued me from evil and darkness, saved me, and told me to believe in Him and follow Him towards The Light. I did, and 5 months later I went public with my faith by attending a church service for the first time in over 30 years. That was on Sunday January 21ST 2007. About 3 months after that I bought my very first Bible ever – “New Believer’s Bible: First Steps For New Christians” – at the Living Way Bible Bookstore in Downtown Homestead. About a month later the very first person that I formally met at that very first church service – Anne J. – bought me a really nice bible cover to protect my valuable investment in The Truth. Inscribed on the lower-right-hand corner of the front of the Bible cover is a sword pointing to ‘Eph. 6:17’. As soon as I saw that I went to the Scripture, and I let The Truth soak in to my heart and my soul. It read, “Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of The Spirit, which is the Word Of God.”
In an unloving and an uncaring secular world I knew that as an outsider of the world I would need His armor to protect myself from the persistent enemy and his legion of followers that lurk in the darkness all around me. While the world rejected me over and over again, that same world wants me back – so that it can use me all over again. I refuse to give in. I refuse to go back to the lies. I refuse to be a servant of this world. I stand before God The Almighty One. I walk in peace as a Disciple of God. I am in this spiritual battle until the very end, and I will ensure that ‘The Whole Armor Of God’ is ON !
I’m forgiven. Because You were forsaken
I’m accepted. You were condemned
I’m alive and well. Your Spirit is within me
Because You died and rose again
It’s In The Lyrics:
