Take the helmet of salvation… (Ephesians 6:17)
In 4-64 Armor at Fort Stewart, we had a display case in the battalion headquarters. There were many artifacts from Desert Storm and one of the most interesting was a Kevlar helmet. It had been worn by a young Private First Class who is certainly counting his blessings everyday. The Kevlar bears the scars of a 7.62, AK-47 bullet. The helmet saved his life. That’s a great description of the ‘helmet of Salvation.’ It’s an eternal lifesaver and the scars it bears are those inflicted on the Lord Jesus at the cross.
