Every person is the prized object and target of a spiritual war that we did not invite nor ask to be part of. The war is for the total worship and allegiance of every heart, mind and soul. As eternal Kingdom citizens (the restored body of Christ), our hearts, minds and souls have been rescued, purchased, and saved by Jesus Christ from sin, despair and death in the ways of the evil. But as Kingdom citizens, we’re reminded the war is not over. Instead we’re called to put on the armor of God, because armor is meant for active duty, not vacation.
Questions for Discussion:
- Based on this week’s passage and teaching, what tactics do you believe the devil uses to infiltrate the Kingdom of God?
- What prevents you from putting on the armor of God as a believer in Christ?
- What does ‘active duty’ as Kingdom citizens (the restored body of Christ) look like?
