|Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.|
|And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:|
Continuing this week with The Armor of God...
In battle the helmet protects the vulnerable head. The "helmet of salvation" is not referring to attaining salvation. Rather, it reminds us that no matter how daunting the current situation is, the ultimate salvation is yours. You are protected. So put it on daily in confidence, with gratitude and thanksgiving.
Most of the pieces of armor are defensive, yet the sword of the Spirit is the only offensive weapon in the believer's armor. God's Word is your sword. Train with it by staying in the Word so that you may be ready in your days of battle.
