Eph 6:14 …having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
Law enforcement has a dangerous occupation.
They never know who or what they will encounter in a day.
Dangerous criminals intent on escaping with little care for life will easily shoot at police officers.
Because of this, many LEOs wear kevlar or some similar protection over the chest and stomach area.
These products save lives by covering vital organs.
The breastplate of righteousness does the same thing – cover vital organs, especially your heart.
Isaiah 45:23 says, “The word has gone out of My mouth in righteousness.”
Again we find God’s word is this important part of the armor of God.
His word protects your heart against the lies of the enemy intent on swaying you away from God.
Reading His word covers your heart with what is true and right.
