Exalt Christ in the Battle

Ephesians 6:10-18

 

Stand Strong in the Struggle.

Be Aware of the Enemy.

~ James 3:14-16           But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, do not be arrogant and so lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, natural, demonic. 16 For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there is disorder and every evil thing.

~ I Timothy 4:1           But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons,

 

Be Alert to the Enemy.

~ I Peter 5:8                Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

 

 

Stand Strong in the Lord’s Strength.

Stand in Truth.

~ I Corinthians 15:3-4             For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,

 

Stand in Righteousness.

~ Philippians 3:9         and may be found in Him, not having a righteousness of my own derived from the Law, but that which is through faith in Christ, the righteousness which comes from God on the basis of faith,

 

Stand in Peace.

~ Romans 5:1              Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,

 

Stand in Faith.

~ Psalm 119:11           Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.

 

Stand in Salvation.

~ I John 5:13                These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.

~ Romans 8:1              Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.

~ Romans 8:33-34       Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; 34 who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us.

 

Stand in the Word of God.

~ Romans 1:16            For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

~ Romans 10:17          So faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ.

~ Psalm 119:11           Your word I have treasured in my heart, That I may not sin against You.

~ I Corinthians 1:21    For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not come to know God, God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

 

 

Stand Strong in the Lord’s Presence.

Pray Sincerely.

~ James 4:8                 Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

~Hebrews 4:16            Therefore let us draw near with confidence to the throne of grace, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.

 

Pray Constantly!

~ I Thessalonians 5:17  pray without ceasing;
