The sword of the Spirit

Jesus answered the devil, ‘It is written: “Do not put the Lord your God to the test.”‘ (Luke 4:12).

Here, Jesus is quoting the words of Deuteronomy 6:16. He’s taking his stand on the Word of God. Jesus is teaching us to take our stand on the Word of God. In Ephesians 6:17, Paul tells us that “the Word of God” is “the sword of the Spirit.” God has given us “the sword of the Spirit” so that we might win victories over the devil.
