      “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.

Y—YIELD TO GOD (Lubbock as a whole)

>Yield to humility……”By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honor, and life.”   Proverbs 22:4

>Yield to obedience…..”He that has my commandments and keeps them, it is he that loves me:  and he that loves me (Jesus) shall be loved by my Father, and I will love Him…”  John 14:21
