The Armor of God
Ephesians 6:10-19 - Week #2 – Lesson #2
THE BELT OF TRUTH
Scriptures: Ephesians 6:10-19
10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God's armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, put on every piece of God's armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared.
16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere. 19 And pray for me, too. Ask God to give me the right words so I can boldly explain God's mysterious plan that the Good News is for Jews and Gentiles alike.

TIME TO DISCUSS:
Are there any particular ways you are experiencing imbalance, instability, weakness, or internal discord right now?
Why do you think the Belt of Truth must come first in any successful spiritual warfare against the enemy?
When do you find it particularly hard to keep your spiritual backbone straight?
How is aligning yourself with the truth different from legalism? Why does legalism confine, yet truth sets you free?
Day 1 – Strengthening Your Core
Day #2 – Truth Checkup
Day #3 – The Hanger
Ø The girdle did three things:
Ø Legalism is “the act of putting law above gospel by establishing requirements for salvation beyond repentance and faith in Jesus Christ. Legalism reduces the broad, inclusive and general precepts of the Bible to narrow and rigid codes”.
Day #4 – Walk this Way
