PROTECTION – FIRMNESS - COMFORTThe Roman soldier’s sandal gave protection to the feet;firm grip on the ground; andmade it easy to move.Feet can easily slide without firm footing.Nails or studs under the sole to keep the grip.Sandal shaped so that it was comfortable for the foot.

Introduction:Comparison between the Armour of God and the Fruit of the Spirit. Peace as the Fruit of the Spirit - emphasis upon the life of Christ in thebeliever producing fruit in our lives. The fruit of peace is seen as we allow Christto live His life in us. Peace as the Armour of God - emphasis is upon standing against the schemesof the devil. The enemy comes to make us slide. The shoes mean we arestanding firm in the knowledge of who we are in Christ.

Peace not AppeasementThe peace of God is not appeasement with the enemy.Those who seek peace with an aggressive enemy are easily deceived.'Peace for our time’After Germany invaded Czechoslovakia in 1938, the British Prime Minister,Neville Chamberlain (1869 – 1940), tried to adopt a policy of appeasement withGermany.Neville Chamberlain went to Munich andmet with Adolf Hitler. He came backwaving a piece of paper and said'I believe it is peace for our time'The next year Germany moved intoPoland and Britain declared war onGermany.Neville Chamberlain died of cancer soonafter resigning as Prime Minister in 1940.

Peace and truth must go hand in hand.Xerxes (485 – 465 BC)Also called AhasuerusKing who married Esther.'And he sent the letters unto all the Jews, to the hundred twenty and sevenprovinces of the kingdom of Ahasuerus, with words of peace and truth,'(Esther 9:30)Coin of Xerxes (Ahasuerus)

Standing FirmThe shoes enable us to stand firm. It means standing firm on Christ, He is ourpeace (Ephesians 2:14).The wrong shoes will provide no grip on the ground.The world’s peace is the wrong shoes for spiritual warfare.Christians who wear the wrong shoes of ‘peace without truth’ can easilybecome discouraged and are soon defeated.Only the ‘Gospel of Peace’ provides a firm footing against the schemes of thedevil.Christians who seek appeasement above truth are not equipped for spiritualwarfare.The devil is going round like a roaring lion seeking who he can devour.We must have the right shoes to be firm footed.We must stand firm on Christ

1.The Gospel of Peace provides firm footing when the devilattacks us in regard to our relationship with God.Standing firm in 'Full assurance of faith' (Hebrews 10:22)Knowing who we are in Christ.Question: What are you trusting in?How good a life you are living? or Christ alone for salvation?If we trust in ourselves we will slideWe must trust in Christ alone.

Faroe Islands – wrong shoesWhen walking up a mountain in the FaroeIslands my feet kept on slipping because Iwas wearing the wrong shoes. I waswearing trainers.Whenever there were loose stones myfeet would slide. It was difficult to keepmy footing. In some places it could bedangerous and I had to work hard just tokeep upright.The next time I went walking in themountains I wore walking boots. My feetdid not slip and I was able to movewithout fear of sliding.The right shoes made all the difference.

Standing firm on the finished work of Christ and not our own works.By grace alone through faith in Christ (Ephesians 2:8).It is not by works but by faith that we are:Reconciled (2 Corinthians 5:18). We have been reconciled to God through Christ,and we are ambassadors with the message of reconciliation.Justified (Romans 5:1). We are justified by faith in Christ alone. There is nocondemnation because in Christ we have become a new creation.Accepted (Ephesians 1:6). We can approach God with boldness because we areaccepted in ChristAdopted (Romans 8:15). We have been adopted into the family of God.

Standing firm - the servant of righteousnessStanding firm because we have been brought out of darkness into thekingdom of the Son of God. Colossians 1:13 'Who has delivered us from thepower of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:'Standing firm because we are no longer slaves of the devil. We have been setfree to be the servants of righteousness. Romans 6:17-18, 'But God be thanked,that you were the servants of sin, but you have obeyed from the heart that form ofdoctrine which was delivered you. Being then made free from sin, you became theservants of righteousness.’Standing firm in the faith resisting the devil. We have the power to resist thedevil in every trial and temptation. 1 Peter 5:9 'Whom resist steadfast in the faith,knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in theworld.'

2. The shoes provide firm footing against the attacks of the devil when heseeks to destroy our relationship with one another in the body of Christ.He is our peace. (Ephesians 2:14)Stand Fast – The Devil wars against the church by causing divisions ofrace; social standing; and gender.All barriers have been removed in Christ.There is one body in ChristOnly requirement - you must be a new creation in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17).(Galatians 3:28) 'There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free,there is neither male nor female: for you are all one in Christ Jesus.'

Racial – Jew or GentileNo racial barriers, 'There is neither Jew nor Greek ' There is no place for racialprejudice within the body of Christ. There is no difference between Jew andGentile. There is no difference between nationalities - we are one body.Social – Rich and Poor, Master or Servant.No social barriers. There is no place for social prejudice between rich and poor,'.there is neither bond nor free'. Every member of the body of Christ is needed, 1Corinthians 12.Gender – Male and Female.No place for prejudice between men and women. Men and women are of equalimportance within the body of Christ. Men and women have different roles butthere is no difference in status within the body of Christ. All are one in ChristJesus.

The shoes enable us to stand against the devil when he seeks to divide thebody of Christ. The God of peace will overcome the devil's schemes.Stand Fast – The Devil wars against the church through self seekingleaders and preachers who cause division by good words and fair speeches.‘Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offencescontrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For theythat are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by goodwords and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. For your obedience iscome abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I wouldhave you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. And theGod of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of ourLord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.’ (Romans 16:17-20)

Stand Fast – Doing all things with love1 Corinthians 16:13-14 ‘Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you likemen, be strong. Let all your things be done with love.’Sand Fast – serving one another Galatians 5:13The Gospel of peace sets us free to serve one another.Galatians 5:13 ‘For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; onlyuse not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve oneanother.’Stand Fast – working together, 1 Corinthians 3:9a.‘We are labourers together with God’The body of Christ is not hierarchical or competitive, 1 Corinthians 13.The devil seeks to divide the body of Christ through competitivenessand pride.

3. The Gospel of peace provides firm footing against the attacks of thedevil in our daily lives.Shoes of the Roman soldier were well suited for long marches throughdifficult places.The armour of God is well suited for walking through difficult trials andafflictions.We have the power to resist the devil in every trial and temptation. 1 Peter5:9 'Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions areaccomplished in your brethren that are in the world.'Resisting the devil by standing firm in the faith.Stedfast in the knowledge of Romans 8:31-39There is no ‘created thing that can separate us from the love of God which is inChrist Jesus our Lord.’

Standing Fast against temptations1 Corinthians 10:13 ‘There hath no temptation taken you but such as is commonto man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that yeare able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may beable to bear it.’Confidence in the face of temptation.We are able to stand in the face of all temptations because the Lord will notallow his people to be tempted beyond that which they are able to resist.Standing fast in the knowledge of Romans 8:31-39‘We are more than conquerors through Christ who strengthens us’. Romans8:37.There is no ‘created thing that can separate us from the love of God which is inChrist Jesus our Lord.’ Romans 8:39.

4. The shoes of the preparation of the Gospel of peace.Prepared means readiness, ‘the preparation of the Gospel of peace’ (Ephesians6:15).The Christian must be prepared at all times against the attacks of the devil inour daily lives.We must be equipped with the shoes of the Gospel of peace.If our feet are not firm then the enemy will be able to pull us down because weare not ready for his attacks.How do we keep ourselves in a state of readiness?1) By being filled with the word of God.Colossians 3:16 'Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom;teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs,singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.'

2) By prayerThe peace of God will guard and keep us. Philippians 4:6-7 'Be careful fornothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let yourrequests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passes allunderstanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.'The peace of God will keep our hearts and minds.Stress will cause heart attacks and mental breakdowns, but the armour of God willkeep us from the attacks of the enemy.The peace of God is sufficient for us to be at peace in all circumstances.Anxiety in believers is evidence that he or she has not learnt to put on the armourof God against the attacks of the enemy. Isaiah 26:3, ‘Thou wilt keep him inperfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusts in You.’

Standing Firm even in the severest trialsThe Shoes of the Preparation of the Gospel of Peace give firmness in the faceof death.Perfect peace even in the face of death.Peter slept in the face of death in prison, Acts 12:6.John Wesley said that even the enemies had to agree ‘We Christians die well’.John Wesley’s dying words were ‘The best of all is, God is with us’.D.L.Moody said on the day of his death ‘This is my coronation day’.
