Bible: Ephesians 6:10-18

Exhortations for Spiritual Warfare

6:10 Finally, be strengthened in the Lord and in the strength of his power. 6:11 Clothe yourselves with the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand against the schemes 1  of the devil. 6:12 For our struggle 2  is not against flesh and blood, 3  but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world rulers of this darkness, 4  against the spiritual forces 5  of evil in the heavens. 6  6:13 For this reason, take up the full armor of God so that you may be able to stand your ground 7  on the evil day, and having done everything, to stand. 6:14 Stand firm therefore, by fastening 8  the belt of truth around your waist, 9  by putting on the breastplate of righteousness, 6:15 by fitting your 10  feet with the preparation that comes from the good news 11  of peace, 12  6:16 and in all of this, 13  by taking up the shield 14  of faith with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation 15  and the sword 16  of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 6:18 With every prayer and petition, pray 17  at all times in the Spirit, and to this end 18  be alert, with all perseverance and requests for all the saints.
