Armor of God

 

According to Dictionary.com, Salvation is:  1. the act of preserving or the state of being preserved from harm: 2. a person or thing that is the means of preserving from harm.

Romans 6:23

23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When a soldier goes into war, they wear a helmet to protect their head from injury. As a christian, we need to put on the helmet of salvation every morning to protect our minds from the lies of Satan. Satan is the great deceiver and wants nothing more than for you to believe that you are worthless, that you will never amount to anything, that no one loves you, that you are unimportant, that you are bad, and that you are hopeless. Satan plants these lies in our minds to keep us from believing in the mercy and love of our Savior, Jesus Christ.

The definition of salvation tells us that it is an act of preserving from harm. It is also, a person or thing that is the means of preserving from harm. Romans 6:23 tells us that the wages of sin is death. What can be more harmful than death? Who is that person who preserves us from harm? What is that thing that keeps us from dying in our sin? Romans 6:23 tells us that the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Our salvation is Jesus. Jesus and only Jesus keeps us from dying in our sin. He is the ONLY one that can give us ETERNAL LIFE!

When you put on that helmet of salvation in the morning, you are putting on the identity of Christ. Not that we will EVER be Christ, but can become Christ-like in our daily lives. Satan lies, but Jesus is truth (John 8:32). When you dig into the Bible and the truth of Jesus starts to penetrate your mind, you will realize that you ARE worthy! You WILL amount to something! Jesus loves you! You ARE important to God! You are good! You are HOPEFUL! This is the truth of Jesus.

Put on the helmet of salvation. Know that Jesus loves you so much that He died for your sins. He loves you so much that He wants you to have eternal life with Him. Jesus loves you so much that He does not want you to die in your sin. He gave His life for you! He gave His life so that YOU may live. Jesus is our salvation. Believe in Him and you will have eternal life (John 3:16).

Put on the helmet of salvation. Know who you are in Christ. Let go of the lies of the enemy. You are AMAZING because JESUS says so!

If you are searching for the truth. If you are seeking a relationship with Jesus. If you have been torn down by the lies of Satan and you are ready to break free, contact me. I would love to get to know you and pray with you. Jesus loves you, my friend. I am here to help you in whatever way I can.

God loves you and so do I!
