Stand on truth

Ephesians 6:14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness

Though the spiritual battle rages on, we have nothing to be afraid of. The Lord has provided us with everything necessary to claim victory in the name of Jesus Christ.

As followers of the Savior, we have something that the world lacks. We have truth, the real truth. One thing the gospel provides for us is insight into the will of God for mankind. It’s His intention to see people repent of their sin, turn to Him, and be reconciled. The truth also reveals that Satan can’t win against the one true God. If we’re centered in the truth, we’re on firm ground.

We’ve also been equipped by our Commander in this battle with righteousness. We’re incapable of obtaining right standing on our own because we’re broken and sinful, but because Jesus Christ laid down His life and paid our ransom, we’re “not guilty” in the eyes of the Judge. That righteousness puts us right where we need to be, on God’s side, with His protection.

And if God is on our side, who can possibly stand against us?
