Truth Holds Everything Together

“Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness.”

Ephesians 6:14

Ponder This

It is integrity that holds everything else together. Truth and integrity are synonymous. You’re to believe the truth, know the truth, love the truth, tell the truth, live the truth, and preach the truth. If you don’t, your life is going to come apart. You cannot get into the battle against Satan unless you have the belt of truth. Satan is a liar, and he will come against you with lies. Jesus is the truth. Satan’s attack is an untruth. His attack on you is to bring a lack of integrity into your life.

Are you wearing at this moment the belt of truth? Or are you living a lie? If you are not wearing truth, if you do not have integrity in your life—in the big things and in the small things—you are going to lose the battle. It is truth that holds everything together; without truth, everything falls apart.

  • How have you seen the reality that everything in your life is held together by truth?
  • What is the connection between today’s verse and Jesus saying He is the truth in John 14:6?
