Our Protection – The Sword posted by John Sorensen on May 19, 2016
God is in the protection business and this should be especially encouraging if you are actively sharing your faith.
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. While there are a number of pieces of protective armor the Lord provides, let’s focus on two: one offensive and one defensive weapon. I can guarantee you that if you’re an active Gospel witness, these are both absolute necessities. For offense we have the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. The Gospel is the Word of God. It’s not our message…it’s not our church’s message. It is God’s message!! And it’s only because it is God’s Word, not man’s word, that this sword can cut into the heart of a person and perform the surgery of salvation. Now, it’s when you’re actively wielding the Sword of the Spirit – the Gospel of God – that you really need the defensive armour – the shield of faith. I’ll talk more about that weapon tomorrow. In the meantime, we’d love to send you a few of our “Ticket to Heaven” tracts free of charge. Just visit us at ShareLife.today.
