Ephesians 6



Ephesians 6 addresses the theme of spiritual warfare and the need for believers to equip themselves with the armor of God. The chapter concludes with final greetings, a mention of the letter bearer, and a benediction highlighting peace and grace.


  1. Spiritual Warfare and the Armor of God (Ephesians 6:1-17): Paul instructs believers to be strong in the Lord and put on the full armor of God. The metaphorical armor includes the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the gospel of peace, shield of faith, helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit. Believers are encouraged to pray in the Spirit and stay vigilant against spiritual forces.

  2. Final Greetings and Benediction (Ephesians 6:18-24): Paul concludes with a call to prayer for all believers and himself. Tychicus is mentioned as the bearer of the letter, and Paul shares some details about his circumstances. A final blessing is given, emphasizing peace, love, faith, and grace.
