The apostle Paul encourages us in the Bible to put on the whole armor of God. He then gives a specific picture of the armor of God.  It is:

  • The helmet of salvation -- we are saved in Jesus!
  • The breastplate of righteousness -- we are righteous in Jesus!
  • The shield of faith, with which we can quench all the arrows of the enemy!
  • Our loins girded about with truth -- Jesus is the truth!
  • Have our feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace -- be ready to tell others about Jesus!
  • Take up the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God -- the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit is our powerful weapon!

So each day, let us put on the armor of God!
