"Breastplate of Righteousness"
“Breastplate of Righteousness”
Are you walking in the Armor of God?
Do you fasten on daily the belt of Truth?
The next point…
14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
Many a sermon and teaching have covered the importance of functioning represented here. Going into such is beyond the parameters of our time together. But do note...
The belt holds everything on...up...together.
Truth does this.
Righteousness is the breastplate.
The breastplate protects the “vital” organs...heart, lungs, etc.
Righteousness does so for us.
Putting on Righteousness...living Holy as the Lord has called and empowered us to do… will protect the vital functioning of the Body.
The functioning of the individual.
The functioning of the Body of Christ composed of individual parts.
We “put on” Righteousness.
We can choose to walk in righteousness/holiness or do reject it.
If we reject, we are neglecting a important part of the Armor of God.
The part that protects the vital.
The part that reflects the very Presence of God.
Stand firm in His Truth...in His Righteousness.
