Perfect Armor

today's reading.
Ephesians 6:10-20   Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might...

the blog.
Paul tells us in Ephesians 6:11 "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." And then he repeats this command in verse 13 letting us know that when we do armor up, that's when we can "stand firm." Now Paul's not just giving us a suggestion here, he's strongly saying Do this! So if I approach putting on God's armor like it's an option, I'm going to run into problems. 

So how are you using the armor of God? Are you using all the pieces? Do you have a routine of putting it on each morning, and what does that look like? How has this armor helped you in the past?Tami W.
