Throughout the New Testament, there’s a curious phrase that most modern readers don’t know what to do with.
It’s, “put on” or “clothe yourself.”
You’re surely familiar with some of these verses:
- And all who have been united with Christ in baptism have put on Christ. —Galatians 3:27
- Clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ. —Romans 13:14
- Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. —Ephesians 6:11
“Putting on” is obviously important. But do you know how to actually do it?
I mean, is putting on Christ about visualizing yourself in His white robe? Is putting on God’s armor a ritualistic process that you go through every day?
“Put on” is a common Greek phrase that’s gotten a bit lost in translation. And that’s unfortunate, because the simple act of “putting on” is perhaps the greatest key to beating battles AND experiencing the fullness of your faith.

P.S. As I mentioned in the video, there’s so much about the armor of God that most people don’t know, like what it is, what it’s for, and how to apply it. I know you’d greatly benefit from an in-depth, illustrated exploration. Consider enrolling in The Armor of God eCourse today.
