How sharp is your sword? Ephesians 6 is the familiar passage encouraging us to put on the whole armor of God: the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, shoes for your feet for the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, the shield of faith and the helmet of salvation. But do not forget your sword, which is the Word of God! You can put on the entire armor, but if you have no sword, you have nothing to do battle with. The Bible tells us that the Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. It is only beneficial if we learn how to use this powerful weapon. How do we do that? By sharpening our swords daily as we study His Word, meditate on it and apply it to our lives. We are useless soldiers in the Army of God if we do not practice wielding our swords before the enemy. Let me ask you again. How sharp is your sword? Is it dull, tarnished and rusty?
Ask the Lord to show you ways to sharpen your sword, in order that you may fight gallantly in His Army!
