Put On Christ
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, … having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, … And take the helmet of salvation …” Ephesians 6:13-17
Do you have integrity? Is yours a life of truth? Do you have purity, or is there some unconfessed sin in your life? Do you have tranquility? Is the peace of God ruling in your heart? Do you have certainty? Do you have the shield of faith?
Did you know that this armor we’re talking about, the armor of God, is really Jesus Christ? The belt of truth—Christ is the Truth (John 14:6). The breastplate of righteousness—Christ is our Righteousness (1 Corinthians 1:30). The shoes of peace—Christ is our Peace (Romans 5:1). The shield of faith—we have the faith of God (Romans 3:3). The helmet of salvation—Christ is our Salvation (1 Thessalonians 5:9). You see, all we need, He supplies. To put on the armor is just to put on Jesus.
As you begin each day, “put on” the armor of God. Consciously say, “Lord, I'm putting on the helmet of the hope of my salvation and the breastplate of righteousness”—all the way down to your feet. And take up the Sword of the Spirit and the shield of faith.
