Pastor Jethro bringing us God's word this morning.
Opening verse: Ephesians 6: 10 - 18
To see the power of God in your life, you have to be strong in him by putting on the whole armor of God.
For a believer, the challenge is the stepping stone to victory.
Truth (knowledge) for a Christian is the foundation of our salvation.
If you want to see God’s grace or expand; then you must seek to know God, set out time and invest in knowledge (The truth).
You should have a knowledge plan.
Today we will focus on THE BREASTPLATE OF Righteousness.
The breastplate protects all our vital organs.
Righteousness is right standing with God, it is a free gift given to us as we received Jesus into our life.
The breastplate usually has a loop that connects with the belt (the truth) ; this is what ensures your righteousness is from God.
If your breastplate is not connected to the belt(The truth) then you’d have a false righteousness which is dependent on yourself.
Things that can crack a breastplate:
2) Habitual and perpetual sin
It is important that you constantly and consistently put on the breastplate of God.
The only way to stay unbroken is to stay in faith, believe in and be conscious of the finished work of Christ and the gift of righteousness.
2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV
21 God made him who had no sin to be sin b for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
In Christ you are righteousness.
