Never leave home without it!

Cycling not only requires a great bike but it also requires the necessary equipment -your cycling armor!

When I get ready to ride I get dressed in my padded bike shorts, cycling jersey complete with its 3 back pouches and light efficient socks.
Next it is important that you have firm bike shoes, protective helmet, padded biking gloves, odometer, mirror, bike pump, water, sunglasses and a bike pack to carry an extra tube and other supplies.  
Travelling without any of these items is out of the question! They are essentials to a successful and prepared bike adventure.
Scripture tells us that we also have some essentials for our Christian adventures.

...Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled round your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.              Ephesians 6:10-17 (NIV)

  • The Belt of truth is like the Odometer. It tells us the truth about the ride.
  • The Breastplate of righteousness is like our Jersey and bike shorts. They cover us and protect us from harm.
  • The Gospel of peace is like bike shoes that prepare us to go forward.
  • The Shield of faith is like sunglasses. They shield us from distortions.
  • The Helmet of salvation is like our bike helmet. It surrounds us and protects us from a sure demise without it.
  • The Sword of the Spirit is like the web program-Map my ride. It gives us direction and guidance regarding our rides and everything pertaining to our success.

I would never go cycling without these things! Why would I consider going out without my spiritual protection???

Let’s do life with the Full armor of God! Put it on!

Father help me to remember to not only put on your armor but to use it daily! Thank you for using cycling to remind me of my need to be prepared using what you have given to me.  Jann
