  • Armor Of God

    $12.00

    Every day, an unseen battle is going on around us in the spiritual realm.

    God has provided everything we need to stand firm and resist evil, but we are called to be actively aware of both the struggle and the resources available.

    In Ephesians 6 the apostle Paul gives us the clearest description anywhere in Scripture of believers’ resources for the spiritual battle. He vividly describes them as armor, which we must repeatedly take up in prayerful reliance on God.

    In this eight-session LifeGuide(R) Bible Study, Douglas Connelly unpacks each element of the armor of God, from the belt of truth to the sword of the Spirit. Readers will explore the context of the Ephesians 6 passage along with additional texts that help them dig deeper into each theme. This guide features questions for starting group discussions and for meeting God in personal reflection, plus leader’s notes to help facilitate discussion.

    For over three decades LifeGuide Bible Studies have provided solid biblical content and raised thought-provoking questions-making for a one-of-a-kind Bible study experience for individuals and groups. This series has more than 130 titles on Old and New Testament books, character studies, and topical studies.
