create enemies

Monday August 27th, Ephesians 6: Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.  First thing of note is that in the midst of all the military talk, the armor is all defensive, not offensive.  No first strike here, only the power to withstand the onslaught the powers of darkness throw at you.  The second thing of note is that we get ready to withstand this onslaught because we hold onto the gospel of peace.  Peace is no fun for the powers of darkness, they would much rather we have some enemies to attack, that way everyone loses.  When we create enemies to attack, we too lose.
