Series: The Church Living Out God's Gospel (Paul's Letter to the Ephesians) - Part 18
Bible Passage: Ephesians 6:10-20

Part 18 of A New Community: The Church Living Out God’s Gospel – “War is at the heart of the story.” That description of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings is equally true of the Bible. We are characters in that story—fighting our own battles in a much larger war. The Apostle Paul closes his letter to the Ephesians with a final charge to “stand firm” as we face our foe, being fully equipped with all the resources at our disposal. In God’s power, we must live with vigilance and courage, confident in our victory in Christ.
