Excerpt: These words present us with another piece of the Christian?s panoply--a helmet to cover his head in the day of battle--THE HELMET OF SALVATION. It makes the fifth in the apostle?s order. And, which is observable, this, with most of the pieces in this magazine, are defensive arms, and all to defend the Christian from sin, none to secure him from suffering. FIRST. They are most defensive arms. Indeed, there is but one of all the pieces in the whole panoply for offence, i.e. ?the sword.? It may be to give us this hint, that this spiritual war of the Christian lies chiefly on the defence, and therefore requires arms most of this kind to wage it. God hath deposited a rich treasure of grace in every saint?s heart. At this is the devil?s great spite; to plunder him of it, and with it of his happiness, he commenceth a bloody war against him. So that the Christian overcomes his enemy when himself is not overcome by him. He wins the day when he doth not lose his grace, his work being rather to keep what is his own than to get what is his enemy?s. And truly this one thing well heeded, that the saint?s war lies chiefly on the defence, would be of singular use to direct the Christian how to manage his combats both with Satan and also his instruments.
