Been reading “Rock Solid Volunteers” by Larry Fowler – FINALLY, a book that shares the importance of equipping people of faith for work AND war . . .
Putting on the belt of truth (knowing God’s truth better and better)
Putting on the breastplate of righteousness (personal integrity and personal holiness)
Putting on the sandals of peace (provide an environment of peaceful service)
Putting on the shield of faith (keep faith in God, not my own giftedness or the giftedness of others)
Putting on the helmet of salvation (keeping an eternal perspective is the key to helping servants deal with frustrations of ministry)
Putting on the sword of the Spirit (know God’s Word for ourselves)
It’s been my experience that the war IN the church is what will defeat the work OF the church.
May I not be found a spiritual streaker today, wearing only the helmet of my salvation – ugly visual, indeed.
