Armor of God: the Belt of Truth

"Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness." Eph. 6:14.

The Belt of Truth is the first piece of armor mentioned in this scripture. But what is truth? Truth is what God says is true. It is found in the Scriptures and, more specifically, in Jesus. God's word is the truth that guides how we think and act in this world. And Jesus is our example of living out truth in the world around us.

As we put on different pieces of armor, we need the Belt of Truth to hold it all together. God's word says that our enemy is called, "the father of lies," and so we must be prepared and ready to defend with truth.

To put on the Belt of Truth means to believe in the story of Jesus and to rely on God's truth revealed in the Bible.
Glide on!
