Ephesians 6:14 (KJV)
Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
The breast plate of the Roman soldier covered him from the neck down to his thighs. The breast plate protected all of the soldierâ€™s vital organs, especially the heart.
The breast plate of righteousness the Christian soldier is told to don protects the heart. The very dwelling place of the spirit of God. So what we actual put on is righteousness of Jesus himself. The virtue, morality, justice, decency, honesty, and the list could go on. All of these things we must display in our lives if we are to be protected from the evil one and be a viable witness for Jesus.
Dear Lord: Help me daily to put on the breast plate of righteousness. So I will be well protected in the spiritual battles that I will face daily. Let me be a shining example of how righteous living can further the cause of Christ.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
