Ephesians 6:10-11, 17 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil… And take the helmet of salvation
What has your salvation meant to you this week? How often do you think about it? I know seems like a weird question to ask. But is it really? What if it is the most important question of all?!
Salvation is so simple a child can receive it and yet it is so deep that you will never fully understand its depths. To an average person salvation could be an odd religious thing, deep emotional experience, place to run when life breaks down, or the overriding core of life.
For followers of Jesus it might be a moment in the past when they first trusted Jesus AND the promise of eternal life in the future. Both are true but it is even more. It is also the present life of Jesus working itself out in all who believe. It is meant to make a difference right now. It is your source of life and power now. If we forget this, we are left weak and disoriented to spiritual attacks.
Keeping our heads clear with the fullness of Jesus salvation is a key way to stand firm in life’s battles.
