Once we know the truth and realise that we are sinners, we can then accept
Jesus as our Saviour and Lord. Paul told us in Ephesians 6:18a to:
"Take the helmet of Salvation."
We cannot do anything good that would please God, but God wants to give us
His gift of eternal life. This is the Helmet of Salvation.
Jesus came to die for sinners and take their punishment for their sins.
He rose again, showing that He is God and now lives in Heaven.
Jesus will wash away our sins and wrong things we have done, and make us
clean inside. If we ask Him into our hearts as our Lord and Saviour,
we become one of God's children.
The devil is very clever in twisting what we know is truth and making us
doubt and fear. This makes us lose our faith and trust in God.
One of his favourite tricks is to tell us that we are not saved, or a child
of God. But, after we have asked Jesus to come into our hearts, we
need to just believe and trust Jesus. It's His job to cleanse us,
make us brand-new in our hearts, give us eternal life, and to bring us
safely to Heaven one day.
To know we are saved does not depend on how we feel inside. All we need
to do is believe that Jesus has come into our hearts. It is then
Jesus' responsibility to save us from our sins and give us eternal life.
I'm going to make a Helmet of Salvation. I need a volunteer to help me.
(Make the helmet and place it on the child's head ). You
are now wearing the Helmet of Salvation. It protects your head and
you need it to help you stop listening to what the devil whispers in your
And the rest of you? Are you wearing the Helmet of Salvation?
Perhaps you would like to put one on, by asking Jesus to come into your
heart today. Let's pray ....
