UNDERSTANDING OUR
SPIRITUAL BATTLE:
Ephesians 6:10-18

NOTICE THE IMAGERY!

- A soldier under fierce attack.

- An enemy we can't see.

- An enemy we can't beat on our own.

For The Enemy's Best Shot

1. KNOW YOUR ENEMY.

- It's not Christians we disagree with.
1 Corinthians 3:1-5; Romans 14:1-15:7 and Ephesians 4:2-6

- It's not bad people.

Ephesians 6:11-13/ 1 John 4:4/ 1 Peter 4:19 and Daniel 3:16-18

- Put on ALL God's armor.

- Hang tough and do the right thing no matter what happens.
