Shield

“…above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.”

 

Ephesians 6:16

 

The imagery is of the Roman archers who would shoot flaming arrows, and just one such arrow could start a big fire.

 

We don’t have to let the fiery arrows through the force field shield of faith.

 

Our faith is grounded in the truth in Jesus.

 

The fiery arrows are lies, false accusations or misapplied truth, or temptations (and every temptation is, itself, a lie).

 

If the arrows are always coming at us, then faith has to be a full time way of living.

Have you been letting any arrows through your shield of faith?
