Romans 13:14,'But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfil its lusts.'

Eph 6:11, 'Put on the whole armor of God...

What exactly does it mean to 'put on'?

 Re: Put

This is a great and practical question!

I believe it means to "Reckon" - like Paul said "Reckon your old man to be dead". This is an accounting term - to consider the full weight and implication and to walk in it's truest reality. It involves "girding up the loins of the mind".

Secondly, it's something that we cannot do on our own. We cannot put on the Lord Jesus Christ or the Whole Armor of God by ourselves or in the arm of flesh any more than the man in this video can dress himself in armor. It takes the girding strength and power of the Holy Spirit as comforter. As we submit to Him in prayer and tarry in His presence we are girded. It's mutual cooperation.

Lord Jesus, gird your church - amen.

It describes the victorious life.

Walk in the Spirit and you will not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
Put on the armor of light Paul says in another place
John says walk in the light even as He is in the light.
Be doers of the work not hearers only.

It is spiritual and inward first so is to be " put on" by faith. He starts by saying Be strong ( in yourself? No) in the Lord and the power of His might ( be being filled with the Spirit?)
This is not for a fleshly fight but a spiritual, standing against the enemy of our souls ( fight the good flght of faith)

It is to enable us to stand against all the enemy's wiles so he cannot steal our light,our life, our faith, our hope, our love...

Put on the Lord Jesus...
Truth...Jesus is truth
Righteousness...Jesus our righteousness
Gospel of peace...Jesus Prince of peace
Faith...Jesus author and finisher of our faith
Helmet...Jesus our living hope
Sword of Spirit...Jesus,the Word
Prayer...through Jesus our High Priest and advocate with Father.

Phl 2:5-16

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Do all things without murmurings and disputings:
That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
Holding forth the word of life
