7 by the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
7 by the word of truth,
“The word of truth” is the Word of God (2 Co 4:2; 2 Ti 2:15; Jas 1:18). It is the proclamation of God’s Word. Paul’s team carefully communicated God’s Word. They did not indulge in fancy doctrines created by man.
Ministers proclaim the genuine truth of Scripture without fear.
The primary foundation of ministry is to deliver unadulterated truth to the people to whom we minister.
