The sword is a historical weapon of war. The soldiers king Herod sent to find and kill Jesus most likely took swords. They went in the power of the king, ready to wreak havoc on countless lives.

With swords, we remember shields. Herod’s sword could not take off Jesus’ crown. That is because

God’s shield was over him.

Here is something exciting — Jesus is your shield. He took the hits so you do not have to. The divine shield is still active today. He protects anyone who trusts Him.

Do you know that?
