Be Strong: The Armor of God
The Sword of the Spirit

Episode 22 | May 27, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for episode 22 in our eight-week series, Be Strong: The Armor of God. Lisa and Laura continue our deep dive into Ephesians 6:10–18, awakening us to the invisible battle that rages while encouraging us to reach for the weapons that keep us strong and steady. Today, Lisa and Laura introduce the sixth piece of armor, the sword of the spirit. This last piece of armor is the most powerful and the most important, because it is the Word of God! Grab your coffee, open your Bible, and meet us on the frontline!

Open your Heart to our key Scripture.
Ephesians 6:17: And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
