Life Questions
These questions are for you to consider carefully and apply to your life. Read Ephesians 6:10-20 and think about the following:
1. (v10) What does it mean to be strong in the Lord and in His power?
2. Think about the different elements of the armour of God.
3. (v12) What are the powers of this dark world?
4. (v18) How do you pray in the Spirit?
