To wear the helmet of salvation is to walk in the covenant of Christ. It is to walk in the identity that was wrought for us through the shed blood of Jesus on the cross. It is to no longer be at enmity but to be a friend of God. It is to no longer be alienated but to be adopted by God. It is to no longer be a slave to sin but to be a slave of righteousness. It is to no longer be in hostility toward God but at peace. It is to no longer be under the death curse of sin but in His eternal blessing. It is to no longer be under wrath, but in the grips of gracious mercy. It is to no longer be a son of darkness but to be a son or daughter of Light, of God Himself. It is to no longer be naked with shame, but to be clothed and adorned with righteousness. It is to no longer be rejected but to be pursued and passionately loved as the Bride of Christ. It is to no longer be condemned but to be accepted. It is to no longer be destined to die but to be destined to live. It is to no longer be dead in our transgressions but to be alive in Christ. It is to no longer be a debtor but to be forgiven. It is to no longer be held captive but to be set free. It is to no longer be pinned down by oppression but to make progress in God’s protection. It is to no longer believe the lies of the enemy but to believe the Truth. It is to no longer have a sadistic father that seeks only to steal, kill and destroy, but to have a loving Father that seeks to restore, redeem and renew. It is to no longer afraid but to trust and to rely fully upon The Rock of Ages. It is be healed. It is be transformed. It is to be adorned. It is to walk by faith and not by sight.
Step forward today in the Truth of your identity of Christ–all who have entered in through the bloody cross of calvary, through The Door – Jesus Christ. All who have left their sinful self to die with Jesus so they can stand so they can kneel before the Mercy Seat of God. Step forth child of God. Hold up your shield of faith. Raise up the Word of God. Walk forward in the gospel that brings peace between God and those who are at enmity with Him. Be faithful in your service, move forward in Truth, and in Righteousness be protected from all entanglements of sin.
