Daily Devotional – Righteousness Covers the Vital Organs

By on February 24, 2022
Daily Devotional

Our scripture for the Daily Devotional today is taken from Ephesians 6:14-20. Wearing a breastplate protects our major and vital organs from a sword or fatal shot. In the same way, the righteousness bestowed upon us by the blood of Jesus is essential to salvation.

Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.”

Our right standing comes from Jesus’ death

The righteousness of our right standing with God is not anything that we can work toward. That is a battle that you or I could never win or accomplish. Even if we were able to achieve a pure and perfect life, our self-righteous justification as a sin would bury us.

Living a life that stands up to the challenge of those around us is not an act trying to justify ourselves. However, our life of righteousness is an act and sacrifice of love and worship in response to the great love from our Father.

Let us rest in the merciful act and gift of Jesus while we endeavor to honor Him in all that we do. May all of those around you clearly know your commitment to the Kingdom of God and your submission to its King.

Let’s Pray

Dear Father, 

Thank you that the death of Jesus on the cross is all that I need to squash the attacks from my enemies. Receive all that I do as a loving gift and living sacrifice. 

In Jesus Name,

Amen
