Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.Ephesians 6:11
This is one of the most profound short verses in the entire New Testament. Preceding it are specific instructions to the people. Immediately following it is one of our favorite verses, a verse that drives our entire ministry: Ephesians 6:12.
We are not properly equipped to handle the evils of this world, at least not with our own works or skills. We need the supernatural Armor of God in order to have any chance of making it through this world into the next. The verses that follow could be the most important series of verses throughout the whole Bible because it tells us what we are unable to do alone but then gives us instructions on how to overcome the forces of evil.
