Verses:

Eph. 6:14 “Stand therefore, having girded your loins with truth and having put on the breastplate of righteousness.”

 

Excerpts:

Truth in 6:14 refers to God in Christ as reality in our living. Such reality, is the girdle that strengthens our whole being for spiritual warfare. Our living must have a principle and a standard. This is nothing less than God Himself expressed in our living in a practical way. When such a truth girds our loins, we are made strong for the purpose of standing.

 

If our daily living is loose, we are not able to stand against the powers of darkness. In order for us to stand, our daily living must be according to the principle of the truth and up to the standard of the truth. This truth is God Himself expressed as the principle of our daily walk, as the standard of our daily living, and as the pattern of our life.

 

The truth with which we are girded for spiritual warfare is actually the very Christ we experience. In Philippians 1:21 Paul says, “To me, to live is Christ.” This Christ whom Paul lived was his girdle of truth. This Christ was God expressed and revealed in Paul’s daily walk. Because Paul’s daily living was conformed to the pattern of Christ, he had the strength to face all opposition and adverse circumstances. Because Paul had been girded about with truth, he had the strength to stand. (Life-study of Ephesians, p. 538)
