The Helmet of Salvation

Text: Ephesians 6:17

When Paul writes to the church at Ephesus and says “take the helmet of salvation”, he is not commanding them to be saved, for they are already saved (Eph. 2:8,9), but to understanding the biblical doctrine of salvation: to know it inside out, being rooted and grounded in the truth of it. One of the best ways to do this is by gaining an understanding of what theologians refer to as the “ordo salutis” or order of salvation.
