Cruise Ships and Battleships - Spiritual Growth Encouragement Series


Bible Verse: Ephesians 6:12

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Reflect and Respond:

According to Ephesians 6:12 who is it you're battling against? As Arnie said, you are on a battleship, and your adversary is shooting at you. Ephesians 6:13-17 gives you the armor to help withstand the battle. What are the various parts of the armor, and how can you use them today?


Father, I cannot fight this daily battle on my own! I need your power and your protection. Help me, through your word, recognize and withstand the temptations that come my way today. Amen.

But first, I have to be strong in the Lord and the power of His might.
I must really on His might more and more so I may have the power to go into battle with Satan and his many minions. Then put on the armor of God. Put on Truth, God's Righteousness, the Gospel of Peace, Faith, Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit which is the word of God. Only then do I have the victory when the battle is over.

Thanks Arnie
