The Central Idea Since we're in a spiritual war, we must use all the spiritual weapons available if we want to win (remain standing). Explanations Insights It is essential that we understand how these instraments can help us in the midst of personal conflicts with our spouses, children, and associates. This is the only place in the Bible where the gospel is modified by the word peace. Interestingly, it is in the context of warfare. Gospel of the Kingdom: Matt 4.23 Gospel of Jesus Christ: Mark 1.1 Gospel of God: Mark 1.14 Gospel of the Grace of God: Acts 20:24 Gospel of the Glory of Christ: 2 Cor 4.4 Gospel of Your Salvation: Eph 1.13 Gospel of Peace: Eph 6.15 Questions What is this "readiness" which the gospel of peace gives us? How does the gospel of peace cause us to be ready to engage in battle with the heavenly forces? Gospel of Peace: Ready for Battle! Cross-references Evil Day: see 5:15, 'making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.'
