Paul writes a letter to the church in Ephesus and he calls them saints; faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ. Toward the end of the letter in Chapter 6 he tells them to be strong in the Lord and in God’s mighty power.  He tells them to put on the full armor of God and to take their stand against the schemes of the devil. He reminds them that even though they are faithful,  they are in a battle with satan.  Paul says stand your ground.  It seems to me that this letter is just as real for us today as it was back then.  Just because we are faithful doesn’t mean that satan won’t do everything he can to try to discourage and defeat us.  Remember Jesus’ words in John 10:10, ” The thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy,  but I have come that you may have life and have it to the full.”   So our encouragement for today is to stand firm and fight.  God has won the battle for us . It was won on the cross.  God bless you all,  see you Sunday and ,
