Where The Word Came From
Just as a soldier of old pulls his sword from his sheath or scabbard, so does the Christian pull the revealed or quickened Word of God from the Written Word of God.
This imagery of the Armor of God on the Christian soldier is fully described in Ephesians 6:11-17. However, the specific verses of fourteen and the end of seventeen are the point of emphasis here.Jesus is the way, truth and life. He is the Word of God who created all things and holds all things together. This "holding all things together" image can be easily seen as the Belt of Truth in the Christian's armor. The Belt of truth is the Logos or written Word of God.
