Episode 141 – Armor of God Pt 6: Helmet of Salvation

In the armor of God passage of scripture, when Paul connects the image of the helmet with the concept of salvation, he’s talking about deliverance. Standing firm in the midst of the battle begins with how we think. Our adversary, the evil one, loves to get us thinking in ways that are contrary to what God wants for us. Once planted in our minds, those thoughts wreak havoc on our lives. But spotting those lies and being vigilant about guarding what enters our minds are essential to withstand the assaults. By the end of this episode, you’ll understand just how important what you think really is, and why it matters so much to keep your eyes fixed on Jesus.

    This message couldn’t be more opportune to me. Despite everything I know I still struggle with my thoughts precisely when the circumstances or events around me are hard. Thank you Brad!
