hope for every fallen man.

This kind of a continuation of the last blog, it's just some side thoughts. On the subject of falling into sin. Something I was really struggling with was keeping on my toes and staying in the armor of God. It is so easy to fall, and so easy to get distracted when we aren't being firm and keeping that armor on at all times. I've spoken with a few friends about the armor of God, and even watched a few videos here and there. I've come to realization on how crucial the armor of God is. How vital it is to remain firm at all times, so that we don't fall. This is something that definitely deserves its own detailed post; that I'll post on eventually. But for now a little encouragement, remain firm and fight to stay in Him. The battle we face as Christians is a non-stop daily continual attack in the spiritual warfare realm. But when we remain truly in Him, where or better yet how can we fall?

Ephesians 6:10-17

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord, and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming missiles of the evil one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

with love,
- Adam
