God takes away all thought of safety to the coward; not a piece to be found for the back in all God’s armoury.

William Gurnall, The Christian in Complete Armour


The armour of God, in its entirety, represents Christ, but it consists of several pieces:

- Belt of truth
- Breastplate of righteousness
- Shoes of the gospel
- Shield of faith
- Helmet of salvation
- Sword of the Spirit

Notice that the author is correct; God makes no provision for the Christian’s back. We are to stand and face the enemy, as the apostle reiterates in Eph. 6:11-14, not flee.
