“And take the helmet of salvation..” (Ephesians 6:17a)
An actual helmet would protect our heads, but a spiritual helmet protects our minds and its thoughts.
When you are attacked with thoughts of temptation to sin, or to believe a lie, or simply to give up the fight, what will you do? Will you allow those thoughts to penetrate your mind as you did before you were saved, and determine the course of your life, or will you live and believe according to the salvation that you’ve been granted?
“For you ought to put off the old man (according to your way of living before) who is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind. And you should put on the new man, who according to God was created in righteousness and true holiness.” (Ephesians 4:22-32)
Remember who you are now in Christ. You are saved through Him and are now a new creation with a new life. When ungodly thoughts try to enter your mind, remember your helmet of salvation, and go to your Savior. He alone has the strength and power to fight against the enemy’s ways.
