Equipped to Win
By: Jim Sundberg
Are you Equipped to Win?
Life is a spiritual battle. We are constantly being transformed—changed either by the renewing of our mind or its depravity. We grow mature or embrace immaturity.
The enemy of our soul seeks to inflict fear that will cause us to withdraw from God and not fulfill our destiny. The Armor of God is there for our protection and to defend our personal freedom in our pursuit to become all God intended. Applying the truths of the Armor of God becomes a way of life, equipping us to walk in spiritual maturity. I discovered interesting parallels between my major league catching gear and the equipment Paul outlines in Ephesians 6 for biblical armor. Using the New Testament as my backdrop, I draw parallels to my experience in major league baseball and explore each piece of armor to go deeper and further in our walk with God as we become more spiritually mature.
