Theme Verse

Therefore, put on the full armor of God. ~ Ephesians 6:13

The Apostle Paul admonishes believers to “stand” like a warrior poised for spiritual battle against the evil of this world. While in prison, Paul was surrounded by Roman guards fully arrayed with military regalia. Paul uses the important pieces of the military armor to explain how believers are to engage in the spiritual war waged against them. Just as Roman soldiers are prepared, Christians are to put on spiritual armor that equips them for spiritual war (Ephesians 6:10-13).

A Roman soldier would never consider leaving off one piece of his armor. His helmet, chest plate, belt, sandals, shield, and sword were all vital to victory over his enemy. Likewise, truth, righteousness, the Gospel, faith, salvation, the Bible, and alertness in prayer will ensure victory over our enemy!

While we champion excellence in education, we are reminded the success of our students cannot be solely measured in terms of enrollment, graduation, and career accomplishments. We must prepare them for a life-long spiritual war. To that purpose, let us admonish our students to put on the full armor of God.
