Daily Challenge-Wear the Belt of Truth

August 10th, 2021 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year of Endurance, today’s Daily Challenge motivates us to put on the belt of truth.

Ephesians 6:14 instructs us to “stand firm then, with the belt of truth, buckled around our waist.” There is great freedom that we can enjoy when we are surrounded by the truth.

Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching you are really my disciples. Then you will know the truth and the truth will set you free.” If we are familiar with the truth, we will be in a much better position to recognize the lies of the enemy, and to resist those lies, when our enemy tries to lure us into temptation.

Bank tellers recognize counterfeit bills because they are so familiar in dealing with real money. In a similar way, we can recognize deception and resist temptation through a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ. In John 8:36, Jesus said, “If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”

Take the daily challenge to stand firm by putting on the belt of truth on the journey of faith.
