| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but winter had its last blast (hopefully) this week here in Virginia. But as I drove by one church, I was encouraged by the forecast they displayed on their sign. It said, “Today’s forecast: God still reigns, and the SON still shines!” Well, amen! 

We have come to the end of our Embrace the Word study, “A Bold Defense: Equipped with the Armor of God” (just two more days). I just wanted to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to each of you for your commitment and participation. Your dedication to diving into God’s Word and exploring the teachings of Ephesians 6:10-18 together has been truly inspiring.

We delved into the powerful imagery of the Armor of God throughout our study. We reflected on the importance of being strong in the Lord and in His mighty power, putting on the whole armor of God to stand firm against the enemy’s schemes. We discussed the significance of each piece of the armor – the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of the gospel of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit – equipping us for spiritual warfare and protection. We talked about prayer as an essential element that cannot be ignored. 

As we conclude this study, I want to reiterate the call to action: I encourage each of you to continue to put on the armor of God daily, stand firm in your faith, and be vigilant in prayer. Let us not only be hearers of the Word but doers, applying the truths we have learned in our everyday lives. May we walk boldly in the assurance of God’s protection and the power of His Word, ready to defend our faith and share the hope we have in Christ with those around us.

I am grateful for the opportunity to journey alongside each of you in this study. I look forward to our future discussions and growth together in faith.

Speaking of the future, Next month, we will continue our BOLD journey with our new Embrace the Word Theme, “The Bold Church: Built on Christ, our Firm Foundation.” Get ready to dive into the Word to see God’s design for His church, His Bride.
