“Armor of God..”   Leave a comment

“Stand therefore, having girded
your waist with truth,
having put on the breastplate
of righteousness.”

Ephesians
  6 : 14

When we put on the whole armor of God,
we are admitting our need for
something from outside of us.
Our desire to be overcomers.

The righteousness of the breastplate
is a provision of God’s grace
through Jesus Christ.
It is part of the amour that covers
the heart and other vital organs.
The enemy will aim to strike
with a fatal blow.

Righteousness is an affair of the heart –
Receiving a love relationship with Christ.
Paul speaks of the “breastplate of faith and love.” 
{1 Thes. 5:8}

“If you give yourself to Him,
and accept Him as your Saviour,
then, sinful as your life may have been,
for His sake you are accounted righteous.
Christ’s character stands
in place of your character,
and you are accepted before God
just as if you had not sinned.”-
{Steps to Christ}

Justification by faith is God’s way of
changing weak, sinful, defeated men and women-
into strong, righteous, victorious Christians.”

This is what the “Breastplate” symbolizes.

WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH.
