Paul weaves the word Stand throughout his passage on God’s armour. What does this look like and how do we do it?
If we say yes to Christ we open the door to the Holy Spirit. He moves within us enabling our transformation in Christ: the armour of God.
Our induction into God’s family, is like “basic training”. We are prepared for battle and better equipped for the war.
Now, fully clothed in the armour of God, we stand firm in the knowledge that our God is willing and able to fight for us.
Unlike a physical sword, the Sword of the Spirit, the word of God, is sharpened every time we use it.
God’s Cone of Silence to still the storm and settle us in the security of sureness.
It might be our faith we wield, but it’s within God’s faithfulness we’re truly safe.
Whether your working, walking or warring, make sure you haven’t just packed your boots of peace, fit them to your feet.
Whether it’s a breastplate or a parachute, if it’s made of righteousness, best to use Christ’s.
It might be pretty, but it wasn’t much use in battle. So what’s the point of the Belt of Truth?
