One of the channels our cable company provides is the History Channel. It offered a fascinating show about the history of armor. It illustrated the various types of armor from ancient to modern times. There are many different kinds and functions of armor. However, there is one central purpose for all armor: to protect and to keep safe. According to Ephesians 6:14-18, God has provided us with armor to keep His warriors safe. He has give us the Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Sandals of Peace, the Shield of Faith, the Helmet of Salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit. These are our defenses against Satan, to protect us from harm and make us able to withstand the spiritual warfare that we as Christians should be waging every day. Did you put on your armor this morning?
