    Fearless #2: Ephesians 6:10-24

    Only the Word of God and the power of Jesus Christ can cause Satan to flee in terror:  Are you fully prepared for battle?

    1. (10) The call to stand against the devil.

    Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.  

    1. Might is inherent power or force. b. Power is the exercise of might.
    2. (11) The command for the whole armor of God.

    God gives the believer a full set of equipment, and He sends us out with everything we need at our disposal.

    1. This armor is of God both is the sense that it is from Him, and in the sense that it is His actual armor (Isaiah 59:17).  God now shares that armor with us - no wonder we are more than conquerors! (Romans 8:37)
    2. (12) The fact of spiritual warfare.

    Paul does not call the believer to enter into spiritual warfare. He simply announces it as a fact: we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but the spiritual forces of evil and so forth. You are in a spiritual battle. If you are ignorant or ignore that fact, you probably aren't winning the battle.

    1. (13) The proper response to the fact of spiritual warfare.
    2. That you may be able: Without the strength of God and the protection of spiritual armor, it is impossible to stand against the attacks of spiritual enemies.  This describes what we use---the strength of God and the armor of God.
    3. God has given us a call, a mission, a course to fulfill. Satan will do his best to stop it. When he attacks and intimidates, we are to stand.
    4. God gives the Christian a glorious standing to maintain by faith and spiritual warfare: - We stand in grace (Romans 5:2) - We stand in the gospel (1 Corinthians 15:1) - We stand in courage and strength (1 Corinthians 16:13). - We stand in faith (2 Corinthians 1:24) - We stand in Christian liberty (Galatians 5:1) - We stand in Christian unity (Philippians 1:27) - We stand in the Lord (Philippians 4:1)  

    There is a lot bound up in that little word, stand.  Fearless

    Fearless: part 1- Ephesians 6:10-24 When was the last time you felt like you got punched in the gut?
    • Punched emotionally, financially, emotionally
    • Know Your Enemy
    • Jesus loves us; Satan hates us. Jesus has plans for us; Satan has plans to oppose us. Jesus, in every way, will bless us; but Satan will, in every way, seek to undermine that blessing.
    • Ephesians 6:12- “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
    • We have been taken captive in the war
    • Jesus came to set the “captives free” (Luke 4:18)
    • Know who you are fighting
    • God can be everywhere; Satan can’t. God knows everything; Satan doesn’t.
    • God reads your heart, mind and thoughts; Satan can’t. He’s created; he’s also fallen. He’s rebelled against God. He’s turned his back on God. He’s declared war on God.  
    • Know Your King
      • Ephesians 6:10, “Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.”
      • You’re going to need strength that is beyond you, strength that is apart from you.  (Philippians 4:13)
      • It’s His battle fought by His strength, and this is ultimately the person, the presence, and the power of the Holy Spirit
      • You can live your life FEARLESS
