Triumphal Feast • Ephesians 6:16 “The Shield of Faith” pt. 1

Ephesians Series • 26. The Shield of Faith Ephesians 6:16 (November 8, 2020) One of the oldest tactics of warfare has been the use of flaming arrows to attack the enemy from a great distance. The biggest advantage to this tactic is that the general does not put himself or his troops in harms way while he inflicts damage to his enemy. This tactic is also used by our adversary, the devil. He shoots at the children of God from a distance and very often does quite a bit of damage to those who are alone and wandering away from the fellowship of the saints. The best defense against this dangerous assault is regular worship and church fellowship. Just like the “testudo” defense of shields used by the Roman army, the shield of faith of the church provides a dome covering where the members protect one another.
