The Belt of Truth

Preparing our Hearts to Worship

The Belt of Truth


In an effort to help you prepare for the October 16th, 2016, Sunday morning corporate worship gathering and to aid you in your own reflections on The Armor of God, I wanted to pose a few questions and provide a few resources to prayerfully consider over the coming days. Our sermon is entitled, “The Belt of Truth”. The main Scripture for the day is Ephesians 6:14a. The other passages are either referenced in the message or provide additional insight for reflection.


(Pick and choose from the many resources and options, which I have tried to make available for your devotional life.)
