Standing Firm in the Gospel of Peace
Pastor Brad Ficklin
As part of “the armor of God” as outlined by the apostle Paul in Ephesians 6, we are exhorted to stand firm with “the preparation of the gospel of peace.” We must be ready and willing to give out to the world from the spiritual blessings that we have been given, by actively and regularly sharing the truth and good news of the gospel.
The metaphor of having our feet shod is meant to illustrate being prepared to stand firm in God’s word in the midst of the deception, evil and chaos of our world. We are not to fall prey to compromise, but rather we must courageously and boldly proclaim the gospel of peace and reconciliation with a supremely holy God.
We must learn to discern what is of God, and what is not of God, and to stand firm in the plan and purpose of God.
1 Peter 5:6-12
