  As we continue looking at the shield of Faith we need to back track a little bit.  In 1Thess. 5:8 "put on the breast plate of faith and love".  But hear we are talking about the shield of faith!  Faith is inter-mingled in the life of the Christian.  When it comes to the armor; from the belt, to the breast plate, to the shoes, to the shield, to the helmet and to the sword.   Most important to God and his son Jesus Christ; and who they are...

  Also is mentioned in the breast plate is love.  Love is also inter-mingled through out the armor and the Christian life.  First the love God has for us and then that love spreads into us.  Resulting in love for God and the love for others.  Rememeber the battle is not against flesh and blood, but against Satan, evil powers...  Love will give us the power to pray for people, to forgive people... to be kind to people... Love never fails!  Love will help us fight the right enemy!  Knowing that God loves us will strenghten us for this battle.  A good saying is , We know whom we believe.

  So the shield of faith lifted high proclaiming we have a God who loves us...

  Psalm 143:2 Romans 12:9-21
