The last piece of Spiritual Armor Paul describes is the only piece of armor that is offensive. It helps us answer the question, “How do I attack?” Up to this point, every piece of armor has been a defensive tool against the enemy’s tactics. This Sword of the Spirit is an offensive weapon against the Evil One himself. Fighting sin, fighting the flesh, and fighting off the devil’s attacks requires the ability to use God’s word with skilled precision. You must know when to use it, how to use it, and where to strike with it. Just as with a sword. Want to defeat sin in your life? You should. Then make learning how to use God’s word with precision and accuracy a regular part of your spiritual growth. Resist the devil with the Sword of the Spirit, and he will flee from you.

Main Idea: Be learning how to make use of God’s Word with precision and accuracy.
