Lake Chapala Baptist
The Lake Chapala Baptist Church will be open Sunday, May 30, 10:45 a.m., for in-person service. Covid protocols, including masks, sanitizing and social distancing will be followed.
Lake Chapala Baptist Church continues an exposition of the Epistle to the Ephesians (6:10-18). In this series of the Christian in Complete Armor the piece of armor being considered is “Putting On The Helmet Of Salvation.” To understand how this protects us we need to understand what salvation means in this context.
• Past experience of salvation — that moment we were saved — Justification
• Present experience of our salvation —our present walk with God — Sanctification
• Future experience of our salvation — when we enter into eternal glory to be with Him — Glorification.
Last week we saw that to fight the Christian fight is to build, and to build the kingdom is to fight our spiritual battle.
So how will Satan attack us and seek to neutralize us? He attempts a blow to the head. Now if you are in Christ, Satan cannot deal you a mortal blow. Your salvation cannot be killed. Your salvation is secure. All the legions of hell cannot change that, but Satan wants to deal you a blow to the mind that will leave you dazed, disoriented, discouraged, and if possible, despairing. Just as Israel in Chapter Nehemiah 4 were at first full of zeal (vs 6) just 4 verses later we read that they were overwhelmed by the rubble they could not take their eyes off.
So it is when we see the rubble of failure or disappointment in our lives all we see is the rubble. Our mind is under attack. The helmet of salvation therefore is our sure hope that brings us protection, knowing that ultimately God wins. These attacks are the fiery arrows flying our way, and what is not doused by the shield of faith must be deflected by the helmet of salvation. As Satan tries to wear down the saints, so our armor must be applied. However hard and continuous he attacks we hold fast to our hope. The Lamb has won, we await the final act of God to put an end to sin. But for now, we are not discouraged, disappointed or hindered, because we have on the helmet of our hope in Christ.
So, fix your eyes on Christ, the hope of glory, and understand when the rubble of life is all you see, the Devil is pleased; that’s where he wants your eyes. So, lift up your head and look to your heavenly Savior, Jesus Christ the Lord.

Abundant Life Church
What is it you want? Jesus asked this question to some who we would think the answer was obvious. The blind want to see, the hurt want to be healed and the captive set free. The truth is that we don´t always know what we want and Jesus waits for us to choose Him. Like a child insisting that they are hungry but refusing to eat any of the food offered to them, we sometimes simply don´t want what God is offering, so He asks us, “What do you want?” Come this Sunday, May 30, ready with your answer.
English Sunday service is at 10 a.m., also at abundantlifechapala.com. Bible study is Wednesdays at 3 p.m. in English. Spanish language services are Sunday noon and Bible studies in Spanish are Friday 6:45 p.m.
