Peter wrote in his second epistle that God has given us everything that we need to pursue life and godliness. That includes the resources that are necessary to gain victory over Satan and temptation in spiritual warfare. We often take these resources for granted thinking of a cute children’s illustration dressed as an ancient Roman soldier, but the importance of our spiritual armor ought not be diminished. Consider how foolish one would be to enter a battle arrayed in shorts and a t-shirt. We are similarly foolish to think that we can enter spiritual battle without truth, righteousness, the preparation of the gospel of peace, faith, salvation, and God’s Word. Without these essentials we are vulnerable to attack and defeat. May God strengthen us by the power of His might to stand firm in the armor of God in the evil day.
