The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[c] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; 18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints—
Part of the ministry I am so joyful that I get to be a part of is Kids Rock. It's a wonderful team of leaders who take church to an area of our city that is in poverty and filled with crime and forgotten. The kids there are so joyful that they get to learn about God thru games, songs and skits. This recreation of the armor of God was in part of the upcoming Arise Woman's conference. The idea behind it was "Princess Warrior" and with Kids Rock, we had a recent graduate of the discipleship program with the kids. We had our first little girl graduate, Charity, who was chosen to be photographed with the pink princess recreation of the armor. We are very proud to have her, she has shown herself very bright and helpful and even brings others out to partake in the Kids Rock ministry.
Kids Rock has been a vital part of this community and I know because of God, He will shine His light in this forgotten area.
