The Armor of God

We picked up this cool picture last weekend. Lindsey and I went to Lanesboro, Minnesota. We rode 27 miles on our bikes through the river valley of the Root River. It's a beautiful bike trail that is much longer than we actually rode. We stopped at a pie shop for home made pie, and there were a few antique shops that we went to. We also stayed at a bed and breakfast called the Berwood Hill Inn. It was awesome. Anyhow, I wanted everyone to see this picture:) Lindsey hung it in a place where we'd see it all the time to remind us to put on the armor of God!

Here's the entire passage:
Ephesians 6:10-20

"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak. [ESV]" (My emphasis)
