A Helmet for the Hope of Salvation (Of the Redemption of Our Body – Romans 8:23)

“I Thessalonians 5:8 encourages us to, let us, who are of the day {i.e., enlightened by God’s Word}, be sober {minded}, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. This helmet is our future hope of salvation, for hope encourages the mind of the believer to take the helmet of salvation– Ephesians 6:17 into our lives to the point that we are assured of our eternal destiny. This helmet helps to protect the mind wherein your believing emanates, for when doubts come at you about your true destiny of redemption, the helmet, your hope of salvation, is given to you to prevent those outside distractions from penetrating or disheartening your God-given hope in your future glory to ever be with the Lord (Colossians 3:4).” ~LMJ~
