This armour is impenetrable... There are no cracks, no weaknesses.
Why make an armour so strong? What does it protect us against?

Ephesians 6:11-12 (KJV) - Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers...

Strong words! There are many wars going on in this world, but none are as organized and as vehement as those going on in the spiritual realm!
So how does this involve me? I'm not a ghost! :oP I am however a "spiritual being". What does that mean? I have a Spirit inside of me, this is the spirit of God. This Spirit within me is in constant battle with all evil things. These evil things are all things which oppose God's will.

So how do we fight against these evil things? What "weapons" have been given to us? What constitutes our "armour"?

Ephesians 6:14b(GW) - Fasten truth around your waist like a belt. Put on God's approval as your breastplate.
6:15(KJV) - And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
6:16(GW) - In addition to all these, take the Christian faith as your shield. With it you can put out all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
6:17(KJV) - And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

God is able to protect us from many things if we wear this armour. But it is a choice. I must choose to put on this armour every day. The same way i choose to put on a coat to protect me from the elements, i must choose to put on God's armour to protect myself from unseen threats.
