Understanding how secure your salvation is in Christ is critically important in the spiritual battle. If we’re not secure in our salvation, the enemy will deceive us in thinking we’re not saved. So rather than fighting the battle with the armor of God and in the strength of the Lord, we battle in our own strength and with our own man made devices which are no match for the enemy. The Helmet of Salvation reminds us that salvation is from the Lord and it’s not from ourselves. Salvation is God’s idea. He originates it. He initiates it. He sustains it and He preserves it.
