When we are tempted, the most effective weapon that God has given to us as believers is the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Jesus modeled this so beautifully during His temptation in the wilderness. When the devil tried temptation after temptation against Him, Jesus used the sword of the Spirit (Luke 4:1–13).
When the devil tempted him three times, Jesus responded with the truth of God’s word – every time. However, I need all the aspects of the armor of God to be present in my life and in my work with the church.
