WordDigest: The Armor Of God (2)Righteousness
"For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your wait with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness,"
[Ephesians 6:12-14 ]
Yesterday we discussed truth as a weapon for the armor of God.
Today we will continue with righteousness.
The death of Jesus on the cross did not only wipe our sins away but also brought righteousness as well into the world.
His death on the cross paved way for His Father in heaven to declare us as righteous.
Therefore we have to put on the armor of righteousness to fight principalities of the unseen world.
The armor of righteousness protects us from being destroyed at any point.
Since Jesus Christ has won the victory already, our duty is not to search but put on the armor of righteousness.
Let's be righteous not per our own standards but that of God.
Dear God, lead us to path of righteousness in Jesus mighty name of Nazareth, Amen.
