Using the Armor
In Ephesians 6, Paul continued the use of the metaphor of the cohort by referring to the individual pieces of the armor that the legionnaire wore. The Christian should wear the belt of truth and the chest protector of righteousness. What that means is the truth of Ephesians and our righteousness in Christ should be uppermost in our hearts.
14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace—(Eph 6:14-15).
The legionnaire would wear hob nailed shoes so that they would not be easily moved in the battle; they could firmly plant their feet. In the same way we should have it firmly planted in our hearts that the gospel is the only hope of humanity and we should be prepared to share it even in the face of the pressures of life.
