When we obediently obey to don the breastplate of righteousness, we aren’t doing so arbitrarily. We aren’t even doing it selfishly. We don’t put it on to invoke some magic spell. We don’t get it to gain for ourselves. We don’t do it so we can live in splendor. We do so in order that we might exhibit holy living. This too isn’t arbitrary. We live a holy life because it reflects God our creator and sustainer and His holiness.

Pastor John Samuel Barnett provides a check to see if you’re living holy.
