Date: Nov 5, 2023
Sub Theme: Equipped for Pilgrimage 2
Topic: Breastplate of Righteousness
Text: Ezek 18:4-9
to study the breastplate of righteousness
to discuss righteousness as a spiritual shield against sin and eternal death.
A Roman soldier’s breastplate is made of bronze or chain-mail and serves as protection for the heart, lungs and other organs. Without it, the soldier is vulnerable to attack and death. Our text today exposed us to the fact that the only weapon that can protect us from been vulnerable to evil thoughts and sinful attacks in the heart; that leads to spiritual death is the breastplate of righteousness.
Define breastplate of righteousness in the context of our text today (Ezek 18:4-9) and according to Eph. 6:14
What is the importance of breastplate of righteousness to our Christian livelihood? Jer 17:9; Rom 12:2; Eph4:23.
According to Hab 1:13, “the eyes of God cannot behold sins”. Justify this statement in relation to Isa 33:14-15 and Rom 3:23.
How can our righteousness be tested while on earth? ICor 3:13; IPet 1:7; IPet 4:12.
Isaiah 33:14-15 revealed that the sinners in Zion are broken down; fear hath seized the ungodly, who are suffering for their ways. They asked themselves, “who among us shall dwell in Zion, where the splendour of the Divine Majesty is like a consuming fire? Who of us shall dwell in Jerusalem, where the ungodly are judged and delivered into hell for an eternal burning?” and the answer is in our topic for today: those with the breastplate of righteousness. Christians, should guide ourselves with this, so as to be able to withstand the righteous throne of God.
Food for Thought
To avoid vulnerability to sinfulness, arm yourself with the breastplate of righteousness.
Rom 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God”.
