Girded With Truth In his discourse on the armor of God, the Apostle Paul is not merely offering a collection of helpful advice; he is unveiling the unassailable armaments of the Divine. These are the strategic means to resist the assaults of the formidable serpent of yore, the devil known as Satan. They stand as supreme and boundlessly potent instruments at the disposal of us believers. Intriguingly, Paul initiates the description of this divine arsenal with an item as seemingly mundane as a belt. Given the potent symbols at his disposal—the resplendent sword of the Spirit, the impervious shield of faith, the radiant breastplate of righteousness—his choice to commence with a mere belt might seem puzzling. It's anything but grandiose. So, this decision prompts a curious investigation—why commence there?
