Armour Call

‘Armor call! Armor call!’ said my husband David.

In response, the scramble of our 10 year old son’s feet hit the stairs. Our son Ian hurls his lithe body down the stairs two steps at a time.

“Stand!”
“Check.”
“Helmet!”
“Check.”
“Breastplate!”
“Check.”
“Shoes!”
“Check.”
“Sword!”
“Check.”
“Shield!”
“Check.”
“Something is missing, son?”

“Ooommm”….Ian groaned. “I don’t remember Dad!”

“Well son, think hard because you are still ‘naked’ without it”.

Oh….why can’t I remember?” queried Ian

In the streets, the sound of war could be heard progressively louder and louder, now on our driveway and grew closer and closer to our front door.

“How could ten year olds make so much noise?” I ask myself.
After a short pause Ian said “Oh yes, the one I do not wear”

“Yes” said David, with relief.

“Pray in the Spirit at all times and intercede for others.”

Father and son spoke in unison.
Ephesians 6:14 - 18”
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace;above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints”.

As if on cue, loud knocking on the door heralded the arrival of this small baseball army.

“Remember” said David, as Ian and his friends scamper off to the field which was half a block away.

David waved to Joshua and Sue; they were good friends and the chaperon parents of the week.

A deep sigh escapes Louisa’s throat. She watches and waves to her son from the upstairs window.

“Peace at last” she thought; for a few minutes anyway.

As Christian parents we believe that we should teach our children to daily wear the armor of God. It is a vital part of their growth in faith and surviving.

We are at war. Yet we can have His peace in our hearts; that peace that passes all understanding.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
