  • The Need for a Sword

 

    1. The emblematic tool of the soldier
    2. A poetic metaphor for speech                  Psalm 57:4; 64:3; Heb. 4:12
    3. The need for something true

 

 

  • Whose Sword Will You Use?

 

    1. The sword “of” the Spirit?
    2. From God’s own armory!
    3. The relationship between the Holy Spirit and God’s Word  Heb. 3:7f; 9:8; 1 Peter 1:10-11; 2 Peter 1:21

 

 

  • How Must We “Take Up” God’s Word?

 

    1. We must know God’s Word – all of it!
      1. Proverbs 30:5-6
      2. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
    2. We must obey God’s Word
      1. Matt. 4 / Luke 4
      2. Matt. 7:24-27

Application

  • Are you unarmed in the fight of life?
  • What is the “fixed point” around which you build your worldview?
  • Will you accept and act upon what God’s Word says about you?
