Ephesians 6:10-24 Reading the Passage

Three Measures for Waging Successful Spiritual Warfare – Ephesians 6:10-24

6 (10) Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty strength. (11) Put on the complete armor of God so that you may be able to withstand the schemes of the devil; (12) because our struggle is not against flesh and blood but against the powers, against the authorities, against the world-rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of evil in the heavenly realms. (13) For this reason, take up the complete armor of God, so that you may be able to stand in the evil day, and to remain standing, having overcome everything. (14) So then, stand with truth wrapped around your waist like a belt, and clothed with the breastplate of righteousness, (15) and with your feet fitted with the equipment of the gospel of peace. (16) Besides all this, carry the shield of faith, by means of which you will be able to extinguish all the fiery arrows of the evil one. (17) Also, take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. (18) By means of every prayer and petition, keep praying in the Spirit on every occasion, and in this state keep watch for all the saints with all perseverance and every petition. (19) Also pray for me, that words may be given to me, together with boldness, whenever I open my mouth to make known the mystery of the gospel, (20) (on behalf of which I am an ambassador in chains), so that I may speak boldly for it as I ought to speak.

(21) So that you also might know about my circumstances, how I am doing, Tychicus, the beloved brother and faithful servant for the Lord, will inform you of all things. (22) I have sent him to you for this purpose, so that you may know about our situation and your hearts may be comforted.

(23) Peace and love to the brothers, together with faith, from God the father and the Lord Jesus Christ. (24) Grace be with all those who love the Lord Jesus Christ with an undying love.
