The capitol can be an extremely challenging place in which to serve. It is certainly challenging when it comes to emotions and attitudes. Leaders can easily become angry over the proposals, actions and words of others. Lawmakers may become discouraged or defeated over the failure of bills or policies to pass. It is easy to become prideful in the successes or rise to leadership. The statehouse is also a challenging place to keep the right motives and affections – acting for the right reasons and valuing the right things.  

These are the most important “heart” issues leaders, lobbyists, and staff face in capitol. God has provided the armor to protect believers in the middle of  challenges such as these. This is the topic of this week's Bible study at the West Virginia capitol as we consider Paul's exhortation to "put on the breastplate of righteousness". God has provided this breastplate to protect the heart - the emotions, the affections, and the will. 

This was the topic of this week's Bible study at the West Virginia Capitol - "Putting on the Breastplate of Righteousness". You can find our entire series on the Christian's Warfare here.

Please pray that many in the West Virginia capitol would come to know, trust, and understand the righteousness of God that has been provided for them in Christ.
