As you know I spent some time as a firefighter, working EMS and dispatching. As a firefighter personal protective equipment (PPE) is vital. If you do not have it you will die.
Have you ever thought about the Christian having personal protective equipment also? I did. Today I want to start at the top with the head. In the fire service we wear a helmet and nomex hood. The hood is fire resistant and keeps your head and neck from catching fire. Then there is the helmet. This is a vital piece of equipment too. It protects from falling objects like rafters and beams.
In the Christian life God has equipped us with a helmet also. Look at Paul’s words in Ephesians 6:17, “And take the helmet of salvation,…” God knows that we are vulnerable in our head and mind. The battle is often fought in the mind. Our Loving God has given to us a helmet that He calls the “helmet of salvation”.
It is vital to know for sure that you are born again. If you do not know for sure you are part of the family you will never take full advantage of the benefits of being in the family.
If you died today and God said, “Why should I let you into My Heaven?” what would you tell Him? If you don’t know for sure that you will go to Heaven when you die please contact me. I want you to know for sure.
So, how are you doing?
