When we see knights in armor or soldiers with armor plating or police with bulletproof vests, we see a person who is prepared for action but wanting to be protected. When the Christian puts on the whole armor of God, he or she does not stand passively while being attack. The Christian dons the armor and then resists the enemy and his plans. That is the calling Pastor John Barnett calls to us today.
