The Breastplate of Righteousness

As we continue to consider the armour of God, the breastplate of righteousness given to us by Christ protects our heart. Our hearts need to be protected by a reminder of the imputed righteousness of Jesus Christ freely bestowed upon us. Any injury to our heart or our chest would possibly be a fatal blow for a solider in the Lord’s army, so let us put on the whole armour of God and Christ’s breastplate of righteousness.
