Great sermon yesterday on the breastplate of righteousness. A couple thoughts from the BB crew would be appreciated. the belt of Truth could be interpreted as either, being truthful in nature, or being protected by the truth of God, either way, very similar in concept. the righteousness clearly cannot be our righteousness, but imputed righteousness from Christ. So why does Paul tell us we have to put it on? See Ephesians Chapter 4 for more detailed discussion of putting off/on. My question is this. If indeed your loins are girt about with truth, would you indeed live a life characterized by righteousness? Or put another way, if you have not put on the breatsplate of righteousness, are you indeed living a life of truth? Pastor applied this to a person who teaches the truth of God, but does not live it. What do you think the practical realities are that relate to putting on the armor of God, and how does that relate to both salvation and sanctification.
