Warfare III: The importance of your shield

     A spartan’s shield is constantly under enemy attack.  A pro knows to get out of battle long enough to recharge his shield.  A noob (new player) is likely to stay in too long when the energy is drained from his shield and…Let’s just say, his rounds are short.

You are in a real battle, Spartan –a struggle for your soul ~  “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual {forces} of wickedness in the heavenly {places.}

You need strong armor ~Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day.” Ephesians 6:12-13                                                                                                                             

One of the most important pieces of armor is your shield; your shield of faith~  “[take] up the shield of faith…

Your faith repels enemy fire ~ “the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil {one.}   Ephesians 6:16

Do you take the time to recharge your faith?  “So,  faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the Word of Christ.” Romans 10:17

And did you know, your shield has a name?  Jesus. ~”But you, Oh Lord, are a shield about me.  You’re my glory.  You’re the lifter of my head.”Psalm 3;3
