Being “strong” is a trait that is desired by most people. It is really important in the Christian realm. We must, as Paul writes in Ephesians 6:10, “be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.”
The emphasis in the preceding verse centers not on man, but on Christ. Biblical strength is rooted in Christ. We can attain it only through “growing in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus.” (2 Peter 3:18) God wants His children to be equipped for service. Jesus said the He came that we might have an abundant and rich life.
The Christian life is a life of action. In Ephesians 6:11, Paul tells us to “put on the whole armor of God.” He says that Christians should be as prepared as the Roman soldier. In Ephesians 6:10-17, he takes the different items of a Roman soldier and made some spiritual application.
Christian, do you want to grow in Christ? It will require you to make a commitment to avail yourselves of all the resources the Lord has for us. Are you ready?
