The Shoes of the Gospel

Ephesians 6:15 | Sermon Resources | 5 February 2023


Pastor Billy continues to unpack the “whole armor of God” this week coming to the shoes of the gospel. In the sermon we will consider how the shoes of gospel peace make us ready to fight our battles.

Discussion Questions

  1. What were your key “takeaways” from the sermon this week?
  2. Spend some time discussing verse 15:
    >What do you think Paul is seeking to convey with the analogy of shoes?
    >What comes to mind when you hear the word ‘readiness’?
    >What might happen to a solider who goes into battle with no shoes?
  3. In what area of your life would you like to experience greater gospel readiness? What might this look like?
  4. The Bible gives us many images to help us to make sense of our lives and our place in the world. The image we find in this passage is that of a soldier:
    >How does the image of a soldier help us to make sense of our lives?
    >What dangers might exist of not being aware that we are called to be soldiers?
    >What dangers might exist if we ONLY see ourselves as soldiers?
  5. How does the gospel bring peace? 
  6. Where would you most like to experience gospel peace this week?
  7. What is one thing you will do as result of studying this passage?
