KC Weekly: Armor of God

In the book of Ephesians in the Bible, God says that we are in a spiritual battle, but our enemies aren’t people. Rather, our enemies are spiritual forces that are working to oppose God. And God gives us armor to defend against attacks from his enemies.

1 –  Try and name all of the pieces of armor mentioned in Ephesians. If you need a hint, check out Ephesians 6

2 – We just heard about the belt of truth. Jesus says in John 17:17 “teach them your word, which is truth.” What do we know that is true about God? 

3 – Ask God to help your family to be prepared and to be able to stand firm against any attacks from God’s enemies.

Ephesians 6:10-18 New Living Translation (NLT)

The Whole Armor of God

10 A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. 12 For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

13 Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.14 Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. 15 For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. 16 In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. 17 Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere.
