Ephesians 6:17a (KJV)
And take the helmet of salvation…
This is a pretty easy one. The Blood of Jesus took care of this one. The helmet of salvation is the piece of armor we get when we accept Jesus Christ as our Savior. However, we must accept it and put it on.
How do we put it on?
By believing what God’s Word says. We must BELIEVE that Jesus came to earth, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, rose on the third day, and now sits at the Right Hand of the Father speaking on our behalf.
We can NOT get to Heaven by being good. We can be the nicest most generous person on earth…but if we do not have Jesus Christ, we will perish. Salvation is a FREE gift. It is UNDESERVED. However, it MUST be accepted and received.
So, stop beating yourself up every time you mess up. Pick yourself up and press on. KNOW that God loves you and He WILL forgive you when you repent. None of us will EVER be perfect until the day that we walk through those Pearly Gates.
We must realize that God loves us…He REALLY loves us. That is why He had to sacrifice His Son. It was the only way He could ever have relationship with man.
You are a daughter of the Most High. Your biggest mistake and ugliest flaws are not even noticed by Him. He sees perfection…He sees the covering of the Blood of the Lamb! Put that Helmet of Salvation on!!
Daddy God, thank You…thank You..thank You!! Thank You for saving me. Thank You for loving me. Thank You for only wanting the best for me. Thank You that no matter how hard I try I can never earn Your love, because I already have it. Thank You for accepting me as I am. Thank You for helping me to become, day by day, all that You created me to be. Thank You that YOU are there to help me change. Thank You that I am NEVER alone. Thank You that every time I mess up and bring it before you in repentance, I can be assured of forgiveness. Thank You that I can call You Daddy. Thank You for being YOU! I love You Daddy! In Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
In His Love and Service,
