The Full Armour of GodSunday, November 23, 2008
I just realised it has been almost two and a half years since I last preached! Pastorpher asked me if I could preach today, one and a half weeks ago, since they will be away for conference meeting. I agreed and did a sermon to follow up Pastorpher's Spiritual Warfare, basically to follow through Paul's reference to the armour of God (Eph 6:10-20).
The feedback from the congregation were these two:
(1) it was a comfort to know that we stand firm as one church. We are not alone, we are part of the body of Christ. We put on the full armour, protect ourselves as well as each other and extend our prayers and petition as well.
(2) one of the more difficult piece to put on will be the breastplate of righteousness. The holiness of God is not an easy thing to put on, but to put on we must.
