number 1Stand firm, then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist… (Ephesians 6:14a)

If it isn’t true…

If God didn’t send his only begotten son to Earth…if Jesus didn’t die for our sins…if he didn’t rise from the grave…if he’s not seated at the right hand of the Father making intercession for you and me…

Then it’s all a fake.

My faith is a joke.  My salvation is a sham.  My righteousness is totally pointless. The peace I have with God is nothing but a delusion.  Nothing that I do matters, because in the end I am nothing.

If it isn’t true.

But it is.

All of it.

And when I buckle that truth around me, my faith becomes a shield, my salvation a helmet, my righteousness the guardian of my heart, peace with God the shoes that help me stand.

And stand I will.

And so will you.

Because we are his Beloved.

And that’s the truth.
