Sword of the Spirit
Hebrews 4:12; Isaiah 49:2; Matthew 4:10-11
(Take out the sword and show everyone.)
Does anyone know what this is? It is a sword! Do you know what swords are used for? Fighting! In Ephesians 6:11 we are told to put on God’s armor and most of the armor listed is for our protection. But there is only one piece of armor that is used for fighting back. Do you know what is? The Sword of the Spirit!
Swords are sharp and they are used for cutting and the Bible says in Hebrews 4:12 that God’s Word is sharper than the sharpest knife! That means that it is powerful!
The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. The way that you use it is by memorizing and quoting Scripture when you need it. When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted by the devil he overcame those temptations by quoting Scripture. When Jesus quoted those verses that was like he was taking some serious jabs at the devil and the devil couldn’t take it anymore and he ran away!
When we are being attacked by temptation and by things that come at us in life God has given us a weapon to fight back! It is the Sword of the Spirit. We should read God’s Word and memorize Scripture verse that apply to our lives. That way when we are facing trouble we can put that sword out and fight off our enemy!
