Ephesians 6:17: “And take the HELMET OF SALVATION, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”

What do the following occupations have in common: a football player, a construction worker on a high-rise building, a soldier on the battlefield, and a motorcyclist? They all wear helmets. Now, why do they wear helmets? Because it is the safety gear that they need to protect their heads. So why protect the head? Because it houses the important organ we call the brain.

It is with the brain that the body’s systems are supervised. It is also with the brain that we think and reason and decide. Among the most important decisions we ever make in our lives…is whether to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. My wife and I work in some of the children’s programs in our church, and among one of the things we always tell the kids is that the most important decision you’ll ever make is accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior of your life. Accepting Him is a decision that will save your life!

Now we do accept Jesus with our hearts, don’t get me wrong. But your brain is where you decide to formulate those words, ask Jesus to come into your heart, and make that acceptance in a public profession of faith. Decision time could be closer than you know, if you haven’t decided yet…are you going to put on the helmet to be safe?

Have a blessed day!
