“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.” — Ephesians 6:11
Video to watch: Some Gave All: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydWhRObVxrM as Veterans Day draws its important for us to remember all of our Veterans, those who are with us and those that have passed on. Growing up with a father who fought in Vietnam wasn’t always easy. It was hard for my dad to open up and share his emotions. We would often move because it was difficult for him to settle down. Life with him had its challenges but also its rewards. My dad was always there when friends and family was in need. He was there if friends needed food or if they needed help repairing something. He was taught in the Army to always look out for your brothers and sisters in the army. When you are in the war zone like my father was in Vietnam you had to depend on your fellow soldiers just to stay alive. This created in him a strong sense of helping people. It also, I believe made him look to the Lord more for protection. As Ephesians 6:11 says we need to put on the full armor of God. For my dad in Vietnam this met putting on his camouflage military uniform, having an automatic weapon on him and most important learning all the skills necessary to protect not only himself but his fellow brothers and sisters.
For all of us today putting on the full armor of God means having a personal connection to God through prayer and Bible study. Also, having brothers and sisters in Christ that can lift us up when we need it and help guide us back on the right road when we get off track. Soldiers need their armor as well as people around them with that same armor to keep them safe. Likewise we too need the armor of God to keep us safe. My hope for you today is that as you will put on the full armor of God today you can remember the veterans and their families in your life as well as those that gave the ultimate sacrifice.
Love you Dad,
You will find answers to these questions in stories about a war and a well. You will be proud as veterans of our Skagit valley community receive a heroes welcome during the service. Expect to take a trip down in a bucket. You will come up from that well with an unforgettable mental picture about a fearful, filthy orphan.
In 14 weeks we cover some basic truths which bind the Seventh-day Adventist Family together. Our textbook will be the Bible supported by the classic work by Ellen G. White, Steps To Christ.
Please see me or Mark Everett with the list of topics. You can also email Shawn Latham at email@example.com for a digital PDF version.
If you want to review some delightful truths, or you would like to bring someone who is inquisitive about what Seventh-day Adventists believe, this may be just what you are looking for.
