Well, it’s been a long time. Let’s try to get this going again with a simple thought:
The Halloween costume of the Christian is described for us in the sixth chapter of Ephesians:
Stand firm then with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
At this time of year, when the world celebrates the power of the forces of darkness, it is so important for us to stand in the light. Soon we will get to celebrate the coming of light into the world. As John says in the introduction of his gospel:
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
