Got your armor on?
Leviticus 7-8/Ephesians 4-6
7:22-23 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Give the Israelites these instructions: You must never eat fat, whether from oxen or sheep or goats.”
4:1-2 Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God. Be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love.
5:1-2 Follow God’s example in everything you do, because you are his dear children. Live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved you and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away your sins. And God was pleased, because that sacrifice was like sweet perfume to him.
:21 And further, you will submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.
6:10-11 A final word: Be strong with the Lord’s mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil.
