Your Sword, Soldier

Ephesians Chapter 6, verse 17:

17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:

Greetings dear readers! Last but not least, one of the main components of the armor of God is the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

The word of God is the only real weapon we have as part of the armor. We have the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, and the helmet of salvation – each and every one of these parts are meant to protect us from the enemy. sword_of_the_spirit

But the one weapon that we are given to use against our enemy is the word of God.

Many people tend to wonder how words can be useful in battle. In our spiritual battle, the word of God is our one piercing sword against the enemy. The Word of God is much more powerful than we think, my dear friends.

If we think back to the book of Genesis, we read that when creating the earth, God said “Let there be light : and there was light.” He said “Let the waters under heaven be gathered Two Edged Swordtogether unto one place, and let the dry land appear : and it was so.”

God used His mighty word to command things to come into existence. We read that He used  His words to create every single thing on earth, including animals and plants and birds and fish and insects and trees and grass.. His word gave life to everything.Man is the only being that He didn’t command to come into existence, but He made man Himself.

When you think of it, the Word of God is so unthinkably powerful. Jesus Christ is the manifestation of the word of God that God gave flesh and sent to earth for us.

Having the Word of God as our sword is the best thing that can ever happen to us, because the power of the word is so great that it can defeat any enemy, and has authority over everything.
