Today, We are looking at the Helmet of Salvation. In our journey, we have looked at spiritual war and the preparation for it at several different angles. The last piece of equipment soldiers usually put on is their helmet. That is because without a head covering the rest of the equipment is pretty useless. The mind is the control center, and it needs to remain intact when all else fails.
Modern war and even sports like football use technology to assure the head is protected and the mind remains clear. Spiritually, it is the same. Unless we are part of God’s family, the other factors are moot. Salvation is not a checklist or group of individual acts. It is a relationship with God through Christ. Once that relationship is in place, then the other factors become important. Without the relationship, the other factors are useless and often seem silly.
We need to know Christ and have that relationship. We receive Christ by believing in Him and confessing His lordship in our lives.Romans 10:9-10 Once we do it becomes who we are and Whose we are; not what we do to earn God’s favor. It is pivotal and eternal. Once we receive Christ Jesus as Lord, then we walk into battle armed with the helmet of salvation and we are eternally safe from the enemy and his desire to destroy us!
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, do not lean on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will Make your paths straight! Proverbs 3:5-6
God Bless You
And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him lwho can destroy both soul and body in hell.8
For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
I Corinthians 1:18
18 For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God
We destroy arguments and qevery lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God, and take every thought captive to robey Christ,
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, 9 obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
Whom have I in heaven but you? And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
and take sthe helmet of salvation, and xthe sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God,
