James W. Alexander on the Word of God as a Weapon of Christian Warfare

“It is true of multitudes who are engaged in the Christian warfare, that they are distrustful of their own weapons.  For a soldier, there could hardly be a more unfortunate prepossession.  His blows must be half-delivered, and his disposition to parley or to flee, exceedingly subversive of bold fighting.  The grand weapon of the Christian soldier is thus expressed, in the most general terms, and in a metaphor - 'the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.”  This is the great instrument of assault against the world and against himself;  for it is a peculiarity of our warfare, that some of our most obstinate battles take place within the walls.  The truth of God, however largely understood, is the name of our whole offensive armor.  This truth in general, and certain prominent truths in particular, are precisely what the Captain of Salvation has put into our hands, to be used against the adversary.  It is a firm confidence in the temper, strength, and edge of these weapons, which makes the brave combatant."
James W. Alexander
