13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. 14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Whenever we do the work of God, we need to make sure we are fully armoured for the battle against the devil. Wear the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit.
With this armour, you will be fully protected from the devil as you spread God’s love.
The belt of truth means you should speak only the truth as you speak about God. The breastplate of righteousness enables you to be righteous in all your decisions. The shoes of peace will assist you in staying calm and spreading the peace. The shield of faith means you put your faith in God and trust that He will protect you from all harm. The helmet of salvation is extremely important for obvious reasons. With the sword of the Spirit in hand – the Word of God – you will be ready to attack the devil and declare God’s love for all.
Wear your armour for all to see.
