Successful Christian Life
Successful Christian Life
 
When I was 26 years old, I entered into the Military service. After basic and special additional training; I was dispatched to the front line in Korea. My post was in the font line and I had to prepare the armor of all kinds of military equipments to protect my body: a helmet, a bullet proof vest, a large belt, heavy boots and M1 carbine. This was what I had experienced during my military life for three years. You can prepare yourself against the enemy and still be in danger. But your life will always be protected. 
In the context of the word of God, I compare my military experiences with my spiritual defense.
In the combat area, the enemy tries to kill me in many ways. Therefore I have to defend and protect myself very well. I have to equip myself with the military gear as I previously mentioned and obey the commanders orders and instructions.
The Bible says that you and I as Christians will be attacked from evil spirits that could try to separate your relationship with your church members and your family members. Evil spirits can also introduce evil things in your life like sexual immorality, dishonesty, and so on. These tactics are used to make you separate from Christ.
Eventually the evil spirit can lead your life to eternal hell.
In order to prevent from such evil attacks and to help you keep you faith, use the power of the Bible by understanding the Bible it and applying its power.
1. You have to have a shield of faith.
First of all, you have to have faith. Faith means that you believe Jesus Christ is the son of God, our Savior and Lord. He is with me and he will protect you from evil attacks.
The faith is the shield protecting you from the flaming arrows from evil spirits.
2. Helmet of salvation: The head of the body is very important because the brain is there. The brain commands us and directs our lives. The importance of faith is salvation. You are saved by the Gods grace by believing in Jesus Christ. You will not be condemned by the sins because they have already been forgiven by God. You are a child of God and have His inheritance.
3. Belt of truth:
In this case, the truth means your honest life. Without your honesty, you can not be recognized by God and other friends. Not only in church but also in your work place, you must be honest to God and to your friends.
4. Breastplate of righteousness:
God is holy and you must be holy. When you truly repent your sins and accept Jesus, you will be righteous. That means your sins is forgiven. You become holy by Gods grace. God treats you holy. Thank God. You and I must appreciate our father God and the son of God, Jesus.
5. The sword of the Holy Spirit:
Since you believe in Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit comes to your heart and will dwell there forever. The Holy Spirit helps you to understand the Bible and have strong power in your faith. You can use His power in Christen life. Jesus commanded that the evil spirits should be cast out from the brother who is suffering from the demonic possession.
6. Foot with the Gospel:
Therefore, in order to combat the evil spirit, you have to have faith and practice it by witnessing your faith to others. You should visit your families and friends to share the Gospel and to them and ask God to let me open my mouth and share the Gospel with them.
In conclusion, If you have a shield of faith, helmet of salvation, belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, the sword of the Holy Spirit and finally feet of the Gospel, you will be protected from evil spirits and it will enable you to have a successful Christian life.
Applications:
1. In order to protect from the evil spirits, I should have a faith only in Christ.
2. I will be an honest person.
3. I will read the Bible and apply them to my daily life.
 
 Ephesians 6:12-19
 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 
 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 
 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 
 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 
 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 
 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 
 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. 
 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
