Armor of God

Put on the whole armor of God, — Ephesians 6:11.

I have written several times about the phrase, “Armor of God.” I love the image, but this morning I  asked myself what is the armor of God? Is it made of chainmail, or tempered steel? Don’t be ridiculous Hubbell. The armor of God requires William James’s “faith and action.” I imagine we begin with an undergarment of compassion, a helmet of righteous thought, a breastplate of a forgiving heart, and a coating of unconditional love.

A person who wears the armor of God, doesn’t wield a sword comprised of guilt, hatred, or name calling. Instead he carries the sword of justice to free the bonds of the opressed.

The best part of the armor of God is that it can be worn by anyone and all. Imagine a world full of God’s true knights.
