Ephesians 6:17 (KJV)
And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
The helmet covered the head and the mind of the soldier. The head, of course, was the core of a soldier’s power to wage war. His thinking ability was the most important factor in determining his victory or defeat. Therefore, the soldier needed a helmet to protect his head and mind.
The helmet of salvation protects the Christians mind so he can focus on Jesus Christ, giving the Christian an opportunity to share the good news of eternal life with the world. That all are sinners and Jesus went to the cross to die in our place, as a perfect blood sacrifice for our sins. He rose from the dead to sit at the right hand of the father to welcome all who accept him as their lord and savior.
Dear Lord: Having donned the helmet of salvation give me the opportunity to share the gospel with others. So they too can don their helmet, having their mind protected so they can also go forward and share the gospel. With a lost and dying world.
In Jesus name I pray amen.
