14 …and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
– Ephesians 6:14 (ESV)
If you know a military historian, they love to talk about the different weapons, warfare strategy, and technology used during each war. If you study the different wars, a lot of warfare has changed. We have moved past the days battle lines in formation to the modern warfare that takes place today. The power and accuracy of the weapons, the intelligence gathering, and the communication have drastically changed through the centuries of war. But one piece of equipment has not drastically changed: the body armor. In any war, there is always a need to protect your vital organs. Through the centuries, too many casualties have come from lack of protection to these vital organs. Even though the modern equipment may look a little different from body armor of the past, the fact remains that we still use strong materials to protect the most vulnerable parts of our body from attack.
This Sunday we continue our series, entitled Called, as we zero in on the next piece of armor from God. Specifically, we will be looking at the Breastplate of Righteousness in Ephesians 6:14. God has provided body armor for our vital organs to be protected from the spiritual battle that rages around us.
Take some time to listen to the worship set to prepare your heart.
Love you Church,
Pastor of Next Generation & Discipleship
