Scriptures:Ephesians 6:17; Isaiah 59:17; 1Thessalonians 5:8
Salvation used here is in the Greek, soteria, meaning, “the embodiment of salvation, aid, victory, prosperity-deliverance, health, help and welfare” according to Thayer and Strong’s Greek and Hebrew Lexicon with its Hebrew word, yeshua, which is Jesus.
Basically, Jesus is our salvation (Psalm 27:1). Why should the helmet be of salvation?
God does not want his children wandering and wondering about the work of Christ and our acceptance in Him. He wants us to be steadfast in his truth that we are eternally saved. Eternal salvation? Yes, absolute salvation! It is either eternal life is eternal or not. We became sinners because of Adam’s sin much more do we receive the gift of life and righteousness because of the one sacrifice for sins forever by Christ’s obedience. Our standing in God is not deactivated by our falling into sin anymore does a child become less of a human when he is taking baby steps and falls severally. No amount of good we do can make us meet for God’s righteous standards and hence the passion of Christ.
Our Father therefore, wants our minds protected from accusations of being imperfect and our flaws that the enemy throws at our minds to sway us into condemnation and sin-consciousness. Anyone who walks away from Jesus is lost yet until he/she dies grace is available.
One who is made righteous not by his own effort but by believing in the perfect finished work of Jesus is forever secured (John 10:27-29).
Beloved, protect your mind from the fear of losing your salvation. It is the helmet of “Jesus” – the truth that makes the protection a success. Feed your mind with truth and the perfect finished work of Jesus knowing you are hopelessly and eternally saved and nothing can sever you from God’s love in Christ Jesus. With this, when in prayer, you know you have a right standing with God and nothing can hinder your prayer life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Prayer: Father, help me by the Holy Spirit to walk in truth always knowing my salvation is of you and not of works to prevail against any works of the enemy in Jesus’ name. Amen.
