The Word: The Armor of God
by Rebecca Roberts
Jesus is the Word. This is His name. Rev 19:13, And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
He tells us to “eat” His flesh: the Word. John 6:48-58
As we do this, He, “the Word” is formed in us.
We are told to hunger and thirst after righteousness. Jesus is that righteousness and He clothes us in His righteousness: “the Word”.
Life is in Him, “the Word”.
His Word is eternal Life. His Word endures forever.
We are told to put on the whole armor of God. Eph. 6:13
It is the Word that we put on.
It becomes part of us, not separate.
The helmet of salvation: the Word.
The breastplate of righteousness: the Word.
The sword of the spirit: the Word.
The shield of faith: the Word.
The girdle of truth: the Word.
The shoes of the gospel of peace: the Word.
Jesus is formed in us and He recreates us to be incredible new creations in Him. We are remade by the Word. There is no name greater than the name of Jesus but His Word is greater. Ps 138:2, I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
Our Father spoke and recreated us with the Words of His heart!
We will not come back to Him empty!
As new creatures in Christ Jesus, we are His Word- made in His Image.
We belong to Him and are not our own anymore.
We are alive because His Word, His Son, is in us and remade us.
