Let’s talk about the belt of truth. The belt of a Roman soldier held the various parts of his armor together. Without it, the armor would flop about exposing the soldier making him vulnerable and ineffective. He would be too busy trying to hold it all together to fight effectively.
In the same way, we need to be wrapped in the truth of God’s Word that is able to hold us together. It is that truth of the Gospel of Christ that is the foundation that we attach all our spiritual armor to. Without it we flop and flail and drop that which protects us from the devil’s schemes.
Therefore, in order to stand firm against the devil, we need to know the truth. Jesus said, “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free” John 8:32. Know it. Study it. Speak it. There is a serious lack of truth in the world today. Be the truth. Live the truth. Demonstrate the truth. Expose the lies of the enemy. Stand in contrast to our culture by holding onto the truth. It our job.
