Lent day 2: Beginning with finally
Taking God at His Word we find Ephesians 6:10-20 begins with the word Finally. The first word is “finally!” which means we need to know all that comes before to understand what comes next. Paul speaks these concluding words in Ephesians chapter 6 to those rooted and grounded in love in chapter 1, strengthened in their inner being in chapter 3, walking in a manner worthy of the Gospel in chapters 4-5 and here it all culminates with an exhortation to stand up, stand firm, and armor up as God’s people prepared to engage in the battle before us. Paul is clear about the reality of the enemy and he wants us to wake up, armor up and stand up. Are you ready to take God at His Word? Let’s armor up!
