The Armor of God Bible Lesson

Armor of God

We teach our children to get dressed each morning…but do we teach them to put on their spiritual daily clothes? The armor of God is something we should habitually think about as we prepare for the day.

Our battle is not with each other, but against the principalities of the air. This lesson will help you to teach children about the different parts of God’s armor and what to do with it.

Objectives:

  • to list the parts of the armor of God (Ephesians 6:10-17)
  • to explain how a Roman soldier used his armor to prepare for battle
  • to explain how a Christian uses his armor to prepare for battle
  • to tell who, or what, Christians battle against

Materials: Have a poster of a roman soldier in full armor. Or you can print the soldier below. Print out a picture of each piece of armor. I have included links throughout this lesson.

Background: When Paul was on his 3rd missionary journey, he lived in the city of Ephesus for 2 years. During his stay there, God allowed Paul to work many miracles including healings of disease and demon possession. The scriptures tell us that people would take Paul’s handkerchief or apron to sick people and they would be healed. Ephesus was where the temple of Artimus, or Diana, was located. The people who came to know Christ were being saved from lives of possible prostitution and idol worship. It was also a place where spiritual warfare was thick. There were Jewish exorcists in the city, including the seven sons of Sceva. (See Acts 19) Evil spirits were fought and the Lord’s name was magnified. Continue reading

He then began His ministry, found disciples for His inner circle, and started doing miracles.

Teaching Biblical Truth to Children – A Young Child’s Catechism

 

“What is truth?” sneered Pilate to Jesus.

Earlier in His ministry Jesus had said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No one comes to the Father but through Me.”

Jesus didn’t answer the Roman governor. He didn’t need to. And even though Pilate washed His hands of innocent blood, I think he knew the answer to his question.

Do your kids know biblical truth? It is our job as parents to make sure that our kids have the Bible training that they need in order for God to grow them as disciples.

But do you know the Truth? Do our kids know the Truth? Do my kids have a solid rock foundation of Biblical Truth so that their Awana and Sunday School classes can build onto that knowledge and help them grow spiritually?

It is our job as parents to make sure that our kids have the Bible training that they need in order for God to grow them as disciples. We can’t get our kids saved. We can’t make their choices for them. But we can teach them the Truth to the best of our abilities and trust the Holy Spirit to do the rest. Continue reading
