Description

Christians of season already know to put on the armor of God and how to use it to fight off the wiles of our adversary (Satan). This sermon is a motivational reminder to stir us into evangelizing the gospel to those about us.

 

Introduction As Christians we are – as much as is possible for us – to be at peace with all men. Rom. 12:18 While seeking peace with men, we are in a constant and raging war against the devil. He seeks to destroy every soul possible. He does not sleep but always in search of prey.
