Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything to stand firm (Ephesians 6:13).
It's one thing to profess making a stand for the Word of God and the testimony of Jesus; it is quite another to put that profession into action. Today many churches and individual Christians are coming apart at the seams. That is certainly true of our nation's spiritual life as well. How important that every true believer put on the full armor of God, and not just talk about taking a stand, but actually stand up for Jesus! It may cost us something; it may even cost us much! But what on this earth is of more value than upholding God's Word in the face of the enemy's attacks?
Lord, help me today to make a difference in this troubled world, not only through the things I say, but in the fullest measure of my life's devotion to You and Your Word! In Jesus' Name, Amen.
