Dressed for Battle: The helmet of salvation

Dressed for Battle: The helmet of salvation

Eph. 6: 17 NKJV

We must “receive” God’s salvation continually: (Like wedding: marriage, birthday: life, graduation: career)
1 Cor. 1: 18 – 19
1 Cor. 15: 2

David spoke of God’s salvation from youth until old age:
Ps. 71: 14 – 18 NKJV

Life has a way of showing us we never stop needing a savior, and Jesus has a way of reminding us He never stops being a Savior: The helmet of salvation!

Discern the difference in the enemy’s armor:
1 Sam. 17: 4 – 7
1 Sam. 17: 43 – 44

(Even David’s brothers had begun to “wear” Goliath’s judgement: 1 Sam. 17: 28)

Bronze denotes judgment:

Num. 21: 7- 9

If the helmet doesn’t fit..don’t wear it!
1 Sam. 17: 38 – 39

Wear the helmet of salvation instead:
1 Sam. 17: 45 – 47

Jesus has taken our judgment and God’s wrath:
John 3: 14 – 16
1 Thess. 5: 8 – 10

Leave the judgement in Jesus’ hands:
Isa. 59: 19
