The Main Quest – Magical Weapons
Greetings Dear Reader,
In my years of gaming I have created some very interesting magical weapons. My younger Son, who inspired this line of thought, still talks about his sword that helped make his character very powerful.
We have magical weapons for the quest. They are only useful for the quest but have benefits far beyond it. The three most powerful are the obvious ones. They are our to wield as needed.
The obvious ones are faith, hope, and love. They are always available through Christ. We do not need to roll the dice or roll play to avail ourselves of the benefits. We only need to use what we have been given.
We even have a metaphor for the other weapons we have. It has the purpose of helping us stand against the evil we will encounter. We fight against “the powers who govern this world of darkness, and spiritual forces that control evil in the heavenly world.”
These weapons are:
The belt of truth: The truth has its own power
The breastplate of righteousness: Our righteousness in Christ protects our heart
Boots for walking the journey to spread the Gospel: As we are going we get to share the good news of peace through Christ.
The shield of faith: Faith protects us from the flaming attacks of the evil. It is how we live.
The helmet of salvation: Our head; our thoughts are protected by the assurance that we are going home. That is our destination.
The sword of the spirit: We have the Word of God as our weapon. It is fast and powerful. It is living. It discerns between the thoughts and intents of the heart.
These are our weapons and armor. They are magical, powerful, and available to all who follow Christ. They are ours to use. They work. It is up to me to assure that I avail myself of them.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
