The Gospel of Peace to Prepare you for War [Ephesians 6:15]

October 7, 2012

Sermon Notes

Date: 10/07/2012

Preacher: Monty Simao, elder

Series: Ephesians

Key Text: Ephesians 6:15

Description: Although it may sound strange to read about peace when we are being equipped for war, it is not strange at all. War and peace are always two sides of the same coin, and when you are at war with one party it usually means that you have established peace with another.  We are warring against the devil because we have experienced peace with God.  We need to remind ourselves of this peace with God: that Christ has purchased and firmly planted our feet into it so that we will be able to stand firm.
