PART IV: TIME TO ARMOR UP!
For the first two weeks of this study, we reminded ourselves of our POSITION as believers in Christ.
Last week, we focused on what it means to "walk worthy of the calling" and all of the practical ways in which we can live triumphant lives guided by the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 6 opens up with additional guidance on how to live Spirit-filled lives in the following relationships:
Then it will be time to armor up with the whole armor of God!
We are going to analyze each piece of the armor and how to use the whole armor of God most effectively.
The Purpose of Spiritual Warfare
We are to be prepared to engage in spiritual warfare as believers in Christ. Why?
PART III: WALK WORTHY OF THE CALLING
For the last two episodes, we've been reminding ourselves of our POSITION as believers in Christ, as part of our Are You Battle Ready? online Bible study series.

Know Who You Are - PART II
To recap last week’s episode, before we can wage war, we need to know who we are in Christ.
Ephesians 1 says we are blessed with every spiritual blessing, sealed and authorized by the Holy Spirit, and that we are carriers of His power and glory.
Wow! But it doesn't stop there.
Ephesians 2 & 3 provide even more descriptions of who we are as believers in Jesus Christ.
As we go through and turn these verses into “I AM” statements, I want you to be reminded of your value, of your purpose, and to be fully convinced of the exceedingly great power that is able to work through you, in the Name of Jesus.

The Soul of Worship - Are You Making a Sound? Podcast is BACK for a new season in 2022!
I believe it’s an incredibly prophetic and ground shaking year for the Church and for our communities.
Wells of revival are breaking open and I believe a great outpouring of His presence by way of worship-saturated prayer is on the way!
But we have to be aware that the enemy is going to try to stop us, distract us, and discourage us so that this great awakening doesn’t occur.
So I’ve been led by the Lord to revisit a Bible study we did back in 2020 called “Are you Battle Ready?”
It’s a 4 part study on the Apostle Paul’s letter to the Ephesians.
For the next 4 weeks on the podcast, we are going to be studying Ephesians to learn how to mature in our walks in Christ in order to be able to battle against the evil powers of darkness.
Before we can be CALLED TO WAR, we must first learn how to...
