If there was ever a time for our children to learn about the armor of God, it would be now. With the prevalence of evil in our schools, it is critical that the children are taught how to use every weapon the Lord has provided for us to combat the evil one and his schemes. On our last Sunday School, both preschoolers and grade-schoolers learned the importance of being spiritually vigilant, as well as how to use all of the resources that God provided.
Sunday School Focus: Armor of God
They discovered why we require spiritual armor and the protection of God. they learned that we should be ready to run to the battle without fear. The armor of God is essential for Christians if we are to stand firm against Satan’s attacks. Put on all of God’s armor so that you can stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against rulers, authorities, powers of this dark world, and spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:11-12). Let us arm our children with the truth so that they can resist Satan’s attacks.
Scripture Reference: Ephesians 6:10-18
The Whole Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. 12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. 16 In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; 17 and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, 18 praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end, keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints,
