Part 5 - The Shield of Faith
Rev. Lon Lorton

"In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil." Ephesians 6:16
The Roman soldier's shield - a large oblong shield to stand behind as protection from fiery arrows.
- Faith in God provides similar protection.
When a Christian takes to the spiritual battlefield, Satan lights and shoots his fiery arrows.
Satan sees the battlefields to be our families, health, relationships, finances, etc.
- God sees the shield of faith to be our use of His Word and prayer.
If you really thought life's answers to our trials were in scripture, would you read and search for them?
