Return to Charlotte's page here.
I wrote just previously and posted how pleased I am to be sitting at my new computer station... but never more than now that the printer is no more and I have desk space to sit here to do my Bible study work...
This season, I are a small group leader for our church's Women's Ministry.. and we are doing Priscilla Shirer's The Armor of God.. what a dynamic and timely study!!!!! .... knowing and applying the spiritual weapons in our arsenal against the devil, the world, and our own flesh!! This week we are studying the Shield of Faith...
Paul likened our weapons to those of the Roman soldier of his time... he spoke of the shield being much larger than those we ordinarily see that a knight might use.. No, the roman soldier's shield was door-sized and could be used not only for frontal attack, but for the fiery barrage of darts and javelines of the enemy.. when a line of soldiers would form something like the turtle formation and be fully protected.
This also spoke of the active church, each part of the whole body was diligently using their giftings and talents and standing together in unity bearing each other on and up, edifying one another, encouraging and strengthening the line of defense against the enemy !
I highly recommen
d this study to all and also, if you havent seen War Room, the film.. it is a must as well!!!!
