The Sword of the Spirit
Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’”
The Word of God is called the “sword of the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:17). It’s your primary offensive weapon against Satan and his minions.
Each time Jesus was attacked by Satan He countered with, “It is written,” or “It is also written,” or “For it is written” (Matthew 4). If Jesus uses the sword — His Word — as a necessary weapon to defeat the enemy, why do we think we can do without it?
Where is your sword? Is it ready on your mind and in your heart? Or is it tucked away, dusty and unused? Jesus Christ wielded His sword to effectively and victoriously counter every thrust of the enemy. If you follow His example, empowered by His Spirit, you too can win this battle!
The Bible says, “The one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world” (1 John 4:4). You’re promised victory in Jesus Christ. So … pick up your sword!
