ARMOR

American soldiers think that the latest design of body armor makes them look "goofy".  The question is, does it do the job?

When David went up against the Goliath (who probably looked FAR from "goofy"), the giant was well armed and amored:

1SAMUEL 17:45 (a) Then said David to the Philistine, Thou comest to me with a sword, and with a spear, and with a shield:

But David's protection was of another sort, and much more sophisticated (and according to Goliath–he looked rather "goofy")

1SAMUEL 17:45 (b)…but I come to thee in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou hast defied.

Although David's weapon and warfare was carnal (physical and of this world) the battles we face are not of this world, but require the same supernatural armor that he carried into battle. 

Sure, you may look goofy and "un-macho" when you face the enemy, but if you're wearing the right armor it might just keep "alive". 

Ephesians 6:13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
