Armor of God (Proper 16B)

The writer of Ephesians tells them to “put on the whole armor of God” to protect themselves from the devil. They are to wear a belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation while wielding the sword of the Spirit. The problem with the image is the presumption of a Christian going into battle, which Jesus never did as he spoke of peace.

So take the time to figure out the virtues of following Jesus – love, for one – and then assign them to clothing that you might wear. Then make a paper doll of yourself dressed in your clothing of God.
