Run the Race or Stand Firm with Armor of God? Run with light Armor!

​Ephesians 6:13-18 ESV

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. [14] 

Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, [15] and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace

[16] In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; [17] and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 

[18]praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints, [19] and also for me, that words may be given to me in opening my mouth boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, [20] for which I am an ambassador in chains, that I may declare it boldly, as I ought to speak.

Belt fastens garment to body, Truth of God – Belt of truth fastens covering(anoiting) of Christ

Breastplate protects the heart, righteousness from Christ – Righteousness because of Christ protects our hearts

Shoes Readiness – Receives Peace, Heart of Peace from the Gospel
