Eph 6:14

" Stand therefore, 
having your loins girt about with truth
and having on the breastplate of righteousness"

Read Eph 6:8-22 for context

Stand Gird Breastplate Truth Righteousness

Stand

Be strong in the Lord, taking advantage of the armour that he provides so that we may prevail.  

Girded with Truth

God, his ways, and his word are truth.  We keep them close by studying the Bible.  Jesus is the truth.  We keep him close in prayer, and when we meet with God's church (Matt 18:20).

We are fortified and strengthened when we keep the truth around us, with us, at hand and ready to use when we are tried.

Having on the Breastplate of Righteousness

The righteousness we obtain in Jesus guards our heart.  

We obtain it by loving God and obeying His word, the truth we have wrapped about us.  

We obtain it by loving those around us, meeting their needs (Matt 25:35-36).  

We obtain it by doing good and avoiding sin, knowing that when we do, God watches over us and hears our prayers

When God watches over us, we are certainly protected.
