God’s Armor (2)

The first piece of God’s armor that Paul mentions is the belt of truth (verse 14). In Bible times, a soldier wore a belt around his waist. This belt held his clothing together so that it did not become tangled while he was fighting.
Today people wear belts to hold their pants snug around their waist. If we wear God’s belt of truth, we will keep the truth about God with us all the time. We learn that truth from God’s Word, the Bible. Then when the devil lies to us, we will be able to know what is true and what is false.
Also, if we have God’s belt of truth, we remember that we should always tell the truth. When we tell the truth, people will trust us and pay attention to us when we share the Good News about Jesus with them.
Wear God’s belt of truth today. Study God’s Word and learn how to follow Jesus. Use God’s Word to stand strong against the devil.
