Homefront HeroesWearing the Armor of God

 

We are all heroes on America’s home front when we answer the call,

 embrace the empowerment, and utilize the strategy! 

Homefront Heroes – here to “empower and inspire ordinary Americans

 to support the troops, veterans, and their families by tangibly sharing

 the unconditional love of Christ.”

 

Our Call

Ephesians 6

11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. . . . 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

 

 

Our empowerment

James 2

14 What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? 15 Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. 16 If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? 17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

Our strategy

Romans 12 : 4 Just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we who are many form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given us. . . . 7 If it is serving, let him serve; if it is teaching, let him teach; 8 if it is encouraging, let him encourage; if it is contributing to the needs of others, let him give generously; . . . if it is showing mercy, let him do it cheerfully. . . . 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. . . . 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
