The Helmet Of Salvation

gladiator-1931077_640

As I stood at the start of the rope course, trying to persuade the teenage girl to get ready, I realized I had never heard so many excuses not to wear a helmet:

“It’s uncomfortable.”

“It’s dirty.”

“It doesn’t fit properly.”

“I’m too hot.”

“It’ll ruin my hair.”

I tried to reason with her, but the excuses just kept coming.  Eventually it was only the insistence of the instructor that persuaded her. She could only participate in the activity if she put it on her head.  The helmet was not optional.

In that situation, the helmet was important because of the potential danger.  If anything went wrong, the helmet would save her from a serious head injury.

How much more important is the helmet of salvation for us as Christians, when we face real danger in our daily battle!

  1. Thank you for reminding us to put on our helmets of the hope of salvation, Lesley. Yes, so necessary for our rescue! I am so grateful the hope God gives is not a “flimsy hope” based on what we do but is a “certain hope based on what God has already done for us.” Thank you for encouraging my heart today! Love and blessings to you!
