1 John 2
In Bible days, men wore robes or gowns. When they fought or ran, they had to gird up their loins (
2 Kings 4:29
, 9:1; and
1 Peter 1:13
). This was done by tucking their robes into their girdles, or what we would call belts, Therefore, Paul was saying that truth is the belt that allows us to fight without being entangled in our garments. Those who do not surround themselves with truth will become entangled in their own webs of deceit and will fall.
Please remember that we can always stand on God's Word because it is the truth (
) and never forget that Jesus will always be: the Way, the Truth, and the Life. (
