READ: EPHESIANS. 6:14 BIBLE TEXT: “Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness” (Ephesians. 6:14).
Two components of the whole armor of God will be discussed today. One is Truth and the other is Righteousness. Truth is represented by belt for the waist while righteousness is the shield for the breast or chest. The two pieces go hand in hand. Truth for a Christian is the result of righteousness within. The righteous person reveals his real nature by speaking the truth at all times.”If you speak the truth, you have infinite power supporting you, but if not, you have infinite power against you, said Charles George Gordon.
Where Christ dwells, there is inherent power to live righteously and speak the truth in all circumstances because, He is the Truth personified (John14:6). People who engage in unrighteous acts and tell lies, yet clarm they are God’s children, deceive themselves. Do you have the righteousness which is by faith in Christ? Truth and righteousness give vigor and vitality to Christian profession. Accept Jesus, into your heart to have these pieces of armor and you will shine as a bright light in a dark world.
