Does the Bible tell us to fight? Read Ephesians chapter 6, verses 10 to 13.
Yes! Christians are told to “fight” the devil, who is our enemy. But don’t worry – we have God’s power on our side.
God gives Christians “armour” that they need to protect them from evil, just like a Roman soldier’s armour: a helmet, a breastplate, a shield, a belt, a sword, and shoes. Read verse 10 again: God is strong and he helps us to be strong, as we fight against evil.
Read verse 14. Find a belt and tie it round your middle; then tuck a piece of paper into it, at the front, like a breastplate.
We need to make sure that we have the truth about Jesus around us, like a belt, so we are always ready in our fight against evil.
“Righteousness” or “justice” means living God’s way. If we do right, it will protect us, just like the breastplate protected a Roman soldier.
Pray: “Thank you, God, that the truth about Jesus and living your way protects us.”
