Weapon Proficiency

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes...and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (Ephesians 6:11, 17b)

The Word of God is compared to the weapon of the day, the sword. Today it can be compared to the rifle of the modern soldier. It takes familiarization, training and practice to become proficient with an individual weapon. I remember doing blindfolded assembly and disassembly, shooting from different stances in bad weather and at night, even firing with a gas mask on. We as Christians need to be just as serious in being proficient with our weapon, the Scriptures. We should read, study, memorize, and meditate on the Word of God. Let me take this opportunity to encourage you to read your Bible daily and begin memorizing some key passage of scripture.

Today is the 100th post of SWORDPOINT!
Pass it on to a friend.
