“So put on all of God’s armor. Evil days will come. But you will be able to stand up to anything.
And after you have done everything you can, you will still be standing.”
Ephesians 6:13 (NIrV)
BELT of TRUTH
Scripture: John 8:28-40 - The Truth Will Set You Free
Just as a belt holds the rest of the armor in place, the truth of God’s
word is what guides all areas of our life.
BREASTPLATE of RIGHTEOUSNESS
Scripture: 1 Samuel 17:20-49 - David and Goliath
When we cover ourselves with the goodness and righteousness of God,
our hearts are protected from the harm that can come from making sinful and unrighteous choices.
SHOES of PEACE
Scripture: Acts 13:1-5 - The Church Sends Barnabas and Saul
Every step we take, we should help bring peace and be ready to
share the good news with others.
SHIELD of FAITH
Scripture: Judges 7:1-22 - Gideon Defeats the Midianites
Through the power of our faith in God, we can defend against any
attack that comes at us.
HELMET of SALVATION
Scripture: Luke 23:31-43 - The Crucifixion
The helmet covers our heads in battle; the salvation that comes
only from Jesus, protects us completely and makes us strong in him.
SWORD of the SPIRIT
Scripture: Luke 4:1-13 - The Temptation of Jesus
When we fill our minds and hearts with the Word of God – the sword of the Spirit –
we can overcome any challenge or temptation
Scripture: Acts 12:1-16 - Peter’s Escape From Prison
Our greatest weapon is the ability to turn to God and rely on Him to help us.
Prayer is a like a horn used to call for help in battle or let everyone know when it is time to attack.

Scripture: Ephesians 6:10-18 - The Full Armor of God
The final week will provide a review of the previous weeks
and an encouragement to kids to put on the full armor of God
