The aged apostle John wrote to believers, “This is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith” (1 John 5:4b). This is an encouraging motto for the believer, and its context makes it even more encouraging. In short, we are promised that everyone who is born of God is an overcomer. If we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, we are promised victory. Properly wielding the shield of faith is imperative to this victory. In this study, we will examine what the shield of faith is, why we need it, and how we must use it.
