Marcus Grodi continues his study of Paul’s letter to the Ephesians by discussing verses 6: 10-20 and what it means to know how to play on the “Christian Team.” On this Christian Team we must first choose a team, learn the rules, know who our opponent is and what equipment we need to win.
Have you ever played on a sports team? Football, baseball, soccer, volleyball, golf? Doing so is a lot of fun, itʼs great to be a part of a team, but yet doing so is not not easy. First you have to make the team, but once you accepted, you then need to learn the rules of the sport as well as the rules of the team, like obeying the coach and being at every practice. Eventually itʼs time to get out there and play the game, but to do this you need to know & understand your opponent and you need the right equipment, and this is equally true for Christians: we need to understand the battle and to have the necessary equipment. This is what weʼll be discussing today on Deep in Scripture.
