Five Minute Friday :: Now {link up}

“Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, having done everything to stand firm,” (Ephesians 6:13 NASB).

Do you know what resist means? Merriam-Webster says it means: to exert force in opposition; to withstand the force or effect of.

Not a passive thing, it would seem.

And what does to stand firm mean? Again, the dictionary says it means: to maintain one’s position.  Maintain means to persevere; and persevere means to persist in a state, enterprise, or undertaking in spite of counter influences, opposition or discouragement.

I don’t know about you, but in the midst of this joyful holiday season I’m feeling some of those things and I need God’s armor now more than ever.
