The Armour of God: Belt of truth…
Ephesians 6:14 (NIV): “Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist…”
Did you know that God has given us a super cool gift – it’s called the Armour of God! There are so many pieces that make up the armour of God, can you think of some examples? Let me give you a few tips… a helmet, sword, shield… I hope you will join us over the next couple of months, on a journey as we unpack each piece that forms part of God’s amour.
This month we’re going to look at the first piece, THE BELT OF TRUTH.
So, what is truth?
Well, in John 14:6 Jesus tells us the He is our way and the only source of truth. We also know that Jesus is the Word of God, and therefore we can find truth in friendship with Jesus and by reading our Bibles.
That means that God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit will help us to live in truth – which means that we can tell the truth even when we feel embarrassed. We can choose to be honest even when we make a mistake. Telling the truth may not always be easy, sometimes we make a big mistake, but God loves it when we are truthful, and He will help us to live honest lives that will glorify Him here on earth.
Father God, thank You that Your Word is our truth. Thank You that Jesus sets us free from any mistakes or lies. Help us to live in honesty every day as we shine our lights for You!
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
