Clothing

Eph. 4:12-13
(4:29)

I. What does he not wear?

Hebrews 12:1
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses,

let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles.

And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us

Ephesians 4:22-24
(4:31)

Sackcloth and Ashes

Joel 1:13
(page 909)

Sackcloth is not a permanent dress.

Joel 2:18 “Then the Lord was jealous For his land and took pity on his people.”

Joel 2:25
“I will repay you for the years the locusts have eaten..”

II. What does a well-dressed body building Christian wear?

Romans 13:12-14
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here.

So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.

Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness,

not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.

Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ,

and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the flesh.

Ephesians 6:10-19
Spiritual Battle!

Why do we need this armor?
(11b – 12)

1 Peter 5:8
Be alert and of sober mind.

Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

1) Satan and his demons are very powerful, but they were defeated at the cross.

2) Satan has great power and authority in the world

Matthew 28:18
…all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.”

3) Satan’s ultimate destiny

Revelation 20:10
And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur,

where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown.

They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

4) 1 John 4:4 (KJV)
Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them:

because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
