It Matters How You Stand!

Eph 6:13  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

Having DONE ALL….Have you done all you can?  Then your final move to victory, when all else has failed or seemed to fail, is STAND!!!

Stand = Stand Still??

*The problem we have with standing is that we are not moving, but Standing Matters!!

I. Posture Matters (v. 14a, “Stand therefore…”)
*Note:  Standing gives the Posture of Fortitude and Resillance!

II. Protection Matters (vs. 14b on)
*Note:  When your Armor is Invisible, You spirit becomes Invincible
III. Preparation Matters (v. 15 “feet shod with the preparation…”)
*Note:  Will you be Ready to Advance when the Time Comes?

IV. Peacefulness Matters (v. 15 “Gospel of PEACE”)
*If they war, let them war Jesus’ Grace, and not your Grit!

V. Prayer Matters (v. 18 “Praying ALWAYS…”)
*Those who ALWAYS pray are ALWAYS heard!

VI. Perseverance Mattes (v. 18 “watching thereunto with ALL perseverance…)
*He who runs in the heat of battle…his strength is small.  God Help Us!

VII. Preaching Matters (v. 19 “and for me, that utterance may be given unto me…”)
*What you SAY in the Battle becomes your demise or your deliverance!

Eph 6:20  For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak. 

*When a Christian is put under PRESSURE, it ought to push out PREACHING & PRAISE!
