APPLICATION QUESTIONS:

Review v. 10, and then compare the principle expressed to these other passages: 1 Samuel 30:6; 2 Kings 6:13-18; Zechariah 10:12; Ephesians 3:7, 20; Philippians 4:13. Share with the group how you have experienced this same strength in your own life.
Read the following texts and compare them to armor listed in Ephesians 6:10ff. What similarities do you see, and what differences? What is the image or picture that is presented in these texts, and what are their encouragements for us? Isaiah 11:5, 52:7, 59:17; Romans 13:12; 1 Thessalonians 5:8.
Of all the weapons in the arsenal of Ephesians 6, which one do you think has the most established figurative meaning in the OT? Read the following as you answer: Genesis 15:1; Dt. 33:29; 2 Samuel 22:3; Psalm 3:4, 18:3, 84:10; Proverbs 2:7, 30:5. What is the encouragement we receive from this image?
How do these passages depict Satan’s defeat and what are their implications for us in our present struggle (battle)? Matthew16:18; Luke 10:18; John 19:30; 1 Corinthians 15:55-58; Colossians 2:13-15.
A most significant verse in the Bible dealing with spiritual warfare is 1 Corinthians 10:13. Why is this so, and what is the exhortation and encouragement of this verse for us?
Read 2 Corinthians 6:6-7 and review Ephesians 6:14-18. What piece (s) of God’s armor or “weapons of righteousness” do you feel that you lack and are there any you sense a particular aptitude towards? How can you enhance your ‘skill’ in areas you currently sense a lack in?
