Proper 17

Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.

When we think of armor, we might think of the towering Medieval knight with thick metal encasing his body. That metal had one purpose only: to protect the knight from whatever kind of attack the enemy could throw at him.

So also the whole armor of God, truth, righteousness, the gospel of peace, faith, and salvation. All of these pieces are there to protect you from the old evil foe who intends to do you eternal harm.

We have one sure and certain weapon, the sword of the Spirit that is the Word of God.

The very Word of God who is Jesus Christ has won the victory over sin, death and hell.

These Seeds of Faith have been sown by St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Bridgeport, NE. I’m Pastor Allen Strawn.
