Day Twenty-Seven : Guard your mind. (Helmet of Salvation)

Take the helmet of salvation… (Ephesians 6:17)


The purpose of the helmet is to guard the mind.  Our head, and our mind, are some of our most sensitive parts.  A single blow to the head could kill, or seriously disable, a soldier.

In the same way, an attack on our mind can cripple our faith.

How does the devil attack our mind?

Two ways.

The first, which we shall examine today is by making us doubt our own salvation.

He will tell us that we haven’t really been saved, that we are going to hell, that we are unworthy etc. 

He will lie to us, and we need to keep those thoughts out of our head by putting on the helmet of Salvation.

By reminding ourselves that we are saved.  Not by our own efforts, but by the blood of Christ.


Salvation belongs to all who accept Christ, and once we put on that helmet, nothing should make us doubt that.
