The Middle

I’m back . . .  🙂

Ephesians 6

Next piece: Breastplate of Righteousness

Breastplate.
Not a common word for a few centuries now. The New Living Translation terms it Body Armor; perhaps a clarification of torso would help our mental imagining.  That area of our frame from the neck to the navel, I read that somewhere, I don’t recall the source at the moment.

. . . and having put on the breastplate of righteousness (an upright heart),  source

The first was the belt of Truth.

So, what is this torso covering? This Breastplate? This Body Armor? That covering for the area where our vital organs are housed? For sure many of the garments I’ve seen do not cover well — not even as well as my PJs. Some really important stuff gets left hanging out . . . not good. You know what I mean?

But the Righteousness of JESUS firmly applied, covers and protects and nourishes our vital inner being! He heals our hearts; our lungs fill with Fresh Air; our gut is strong and ready to digest and pull in nutrients. But without Him . . .

Jeremiah 17:9  (NLT)9 “The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? source

The Belt of Truth
The Breastplate of Righteousness — Don’t even stay home in your PJs without them, much less leave the house!
