We are now on armor element number three — peace! We have discussed truth as being a part of our support structure for upright posture and standing for Christ, and yesterday, we learned how righteousness is not only a protector of life but also a reflection of Christian life. Let us now bring our attention to our key text coming out of Ephesians 6:14 — 17 (KJV) focusing special attention on peace. The Word of the Lord reads:
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
