Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, Ephesians 6:14 (NIV)
Month 2 here we go!
A short verse this week and we begin to look at each piece that makes up the armor. The belt of truth is God’s Word, the bible, which serves as our light as we have a standard outside of ourselves and our feelings that we can rely on to guide us. However, a belt that is hung up in the closet is no help when you are out. In the same way, we need to read the Bible and have it in our hearts rather than simply owning a Bible for it to have an impact.
The breastplate of righteousness is the second piece of armor mentioned. Once we have truth in its correct place, we can add the breastplate of righteousness which helps us to live our lives in a way that honors God through the help of the Holy Spirit.
I look forward to learning more about the different pieces of armor as I study this section of scripture.
