Loin's gird about with truth: Area between knees and waist. Clothed for protection and modesty's sake, also meaning reproduction organs. Simply means, the producing of the truth of God's word in a modest, morally way; in the life's of yourself and other's.
Here we learn the importance of spreading the Gospel of God's word to people in our lives in a way that shows that we keep to his word. Through our actions, our ways of doing things out of love, walking in morality, bringing light to all things. Being an example of a true Christian follower and not pushing people away from the truth, due to the way we present the truth with non-loving judgement. But rather drawing them in to want what we have and the way we handle things with love, patients and wisdom above all. Also teaching, that this all comes from the Father who has transformed us into his likeness. So that other's will want to become more like God and be "fishers of men",(Matthew 4:19). So many out there today fall astray from the true doctrine of faith in Jesus Christ and God's love, and are more focused on earthly gain, rather than spiritual. Most of who are behind the pulpits,(Matthew 23:23,25) There are many lurering distractions in this world today, which make it very easy for someone who is not wearing the complete 'armor of God' to become ensnared with sin. Sin comes in many forms. For satan was an angle of light,(2 Corinthians 11:14). That is why we need to prepare for battle and always stay suited up. If we lack in just one piece of spiritual body armor, we are open to attack! Sin is like a mosquito and the armor is like repellant. All who is reading this know's exactly what I'm talking about when I say; that if you miss one spot of repellant on your body, that mosquito will find that one little spot and attack you there. The same is with the 'armor of God' in our lives. For the armor that is missing, is the place where the enemy will attack you. So is to say, the place where your being attack will not only effect that area. But if not opposed it will render the rest of the armor, leaving you defeated. We must always be prepared to freely give God's truth to all who come in and out of our life's,(2 Timothy 4:2). Let us do so in our Christ example, modesty, morality and above all truth! PUT ON THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD, LEST YOU NOT BE ABLE TO STAND YOUR GROUND IN THE DAY OF EVIL!!!
Your brother in Christ,
Apostle Justin Thomley
