Have you ever considered what it means to put on the whole armor of God? Many Christians believe that it means we have to fight for God. In other words, we have to DO something for Him, or He needs our help. When you look closely at these verses, however, the verbs selected by Paul reference simply standing in place. And in the context of Ephesians, we know that it is God working in us through Christ that enables/causes us to stand in the first place. May we look to Him for all the strength that we need to stand in Christ.

Jesus gives the perfect and model prayer for Christians in this passage of Scripture. By praying this prayer, God’s people are asking their King and Heavenly Father to use them and to work through them in order that His Kingdom might come on earth. Christians should take great hope and encouragement as they make this prayer. God is always faithful to answer this prayer. Truly, may His will be done on earth, as it is in heaven!

God commands us to be grateful in this passage. But God also gives us the motivation and the ability to be thankful because of who the Lord Jesus Christ is. No matter who we are or what we are facing, God can and will enable a heart of gratitude to be ours through the power of His Holy Spirit.

James 5 explains that the LORD our God is patient in His steadfastness. But He is not absent or slow to action. God has been working from all of eternity to redeem a people to Himself, and He has promised to come again in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Christian must wait patiently, eagerly expecting the coming of the Lord. Without this hope, meaningful life is impossible.

As we continue in James 1, pastor James highlights the importance of a life built on the wisdom of God. The greatest barrier to living a wise life is simply not asking God for wisdom. Beyond this, we see that the wisdom that God gives us must be acted upon. It must be lived out by the power of Jesus Christ.

What do you do when times are tough? Have you considered that God is testing your faith? Ultimately, God wants His people to be able to find joy even in the most difficult of situations. As we take up our cross to follow the Lord Jesus, may God continue to make us more and more like His Son, our Savior.
