Are You Ready For Some Football?

Would you play football without pads and helmet? Not hardly! The toughest men would not consider something so foolish! Even with all the protective gear they sometimes get hurt.

Danger, temptations, and trials lurk around every corner, trying to draw our attention away from God. That’s why God provides us with his protective gear; faith and love as a breastplate to protect our hearts, and the hope of salvation as a helmet to guard our minds. When we have faith, love and hope, we can face the challenges of each day, knowing God will is with us.

But, too often, we rush into the game without God’s protection and get pretty beat up before we finally realize our mistake. God’s protective uniform is free. Wear it!

But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet.  1Thessalonians 5:8
