Don The Armour

Every soul clad with this armour of God shall stand and persevere; true grace can never be vanquished. The Christian is born a conqueror, the gates of hell shall not prevail against him. He that is “born of God, overcometh the world,” (1 John 5:4). Mark from whence the victory is dated, even from his birth. There is victory sown in his new nature; even that seed of God, which will keep him from being swallowed up by sin or Satan. As Christ rose never to die more, so doth he raise souls from the grave of sin, never to come under the power of spiritual death more.

William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour


It can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the darkness in the world today, but if you’ve read the Book, you know how it ends: Christ wins. If you’re with him, you have nothing to worry about; you follow the King who has already overcome the world, and through your faith in him, you will conquer it too.
