The Belt of Truth

Episode 17 | April 22, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for episode 17 in our eight-week series, Be Strong: The Armor of God. Lisa and Laura will dive into Ephesians 6:10–18, awakening us to the invisible battle that rages while encouraging us to reach for the weapons that keep us strong and steady. Today, Lisa and Laura introduce us to our first piece of armor, the belt of truth. If you struggle to believe God’s truth is ordered toward your happiness, this episode is for you. Grab your coffee and get ready to open your heart, open your Bible, and invite Him in.

Open your Heart to our key Scripture.
Ephesians 6:13–14: Therefore, take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having fastened the belt of truth around your waist. (ESV)

Invite Him in with this episode’s question for reflection.
Which of my emotions or decisions do I need to gather up and tuck into the truth?

CCC 397: Man, tempted by the devil, let his trust in his Creator die in his heart and, abusing his freedom, disobeyed God's command. This is what man's first sin consisted of. All subsequent sin would be disobedience toward God and lack of trust in his goodness.
