Righteousness In Its Right Place

Ephesians 6:14b - the breastplate of righteousness in place

The breastplate is a protective plate that covers the vital organs, including the heart. We need to protect our heart, for as Proverbs says it is the well spring of life. Our heart is the core of who we are, our identity, our passion, our life.

But why righteousness?

Stand Wrapped In Truth

Ephesian 6:14a - Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist...

Why do we need truth wrapped around us, securing everything? Because we are battling against the Father of Lies. He lies to us about our position and security, he lies to us about the character of God, he lies to us about our future, our past and our present, he even lies about who he is, in an attempt to limit our effectiveness.
