Hi friends, I’m here to talk about the Armor of God. If you go to battle, you need to be armed with the Armor. Without it, the devil sees you as an easy target. So I will talk about one of the pieces; The Shoes of Peace.

We need to remind ourselves about the shoes of peace. Because that protects us from walking in the path of death. If we walk in the path of death, we will stumble many times. If we walk in the path of life, we will have a smooth path with no trouble! 

The shoes of peace are part of the gospel of peace. After you have received the shoes of peace, share it with others instead of keeping it just for yourself. That's what Jesus’s sheep do. To have the shoes, you need to have the readiness.  And when I say to share it, I am saying to preach it also. Preach it for others. 2 Timothy 4:2 is related to this. It says that we should preach the word of God, anytime or anywhere.

As God's children, we have the responsibility to listen to the Holy Spirit. If you are talking to a friend, a teacher, a person you know, and  you feel like the Holy Spirit is talking to you, do it. Listen to it. The Holy Spirit is guiding you at that very moment. We also need to speak the truth in love. We need to preach God's word in kindness. Or else no one would want to know about God. If we don't speak in truth, our chains will not be broken. But when we do speak in truth, we will be set free. Only truth can set you free. 

We are living in a world that doesn't have time to share the gospel. Even in Matthew 6:31-32 gives examples about questions we use as excuses during the day. One of the many excuses we use are, “What will we eat?” The only people who ask those questions are unbelievers, only unbelievers stress like that. As Christians, we rely on God. We need to depend on him. We do that not just because we are Christians, but also because our God is the same yesterday, today and always. Whenever we trust in God, we feel peace because he’s very proud of us. When we don’t trust in him, the devil takes this advantage to distract you. He uses your personal life; close family, people, or even your own hobbies. Even when we go through really tough times, don’t lose heart. Or in another way, stand firm. John 16:33, Jesus said we had to suffer in this world. But Jesus also said that he defeated this world. So no worries! Jesus had told all this, so that we could have peace in our hearts.

 In my life, I do ground tennis, exercise, and many other activities. But I feel deep down that I am playing with my life. What I mean is not taking time to read the Bible very often, but one thing I’m glad about is that I pray every single day before school so that God could bless my day. 1 John 2:17 tells us this world, and everything with it will disappear. But if we listen and obey God‘s commands, we will live forever (spiritually.)

 I think I am doing the will of God, because I do the best I can of what God expects. I think that all Christians should do the same. We should not wear the shoes just to share the gospel, but to stand for not our righteousness, but Jesus’s righteousness. We need to stand against the devil and his evil schemes. 1 Corinthians 16:13 gives strong advice. Don’t lose your faith. Stay strong and prepared. Galatians 5:1 tells us that Christ gives us freedom. I know I walk spiritually and physically. And I am sure most Christians do as well. If we love God, then you must love your neighbor. Don’t keep the gospel just for yourself, instead, share it with love and truth.
