Title: Putting on the Armor of God
Lesson Objective: To teach young children about putting on the armor of God and how it can help them in their daily lives.
Hello, boys and girls! Today, we are going to learn about something very special that God has given us to help us through our daily lives. It’s called the “armor of God.” Just like a brave knight puts on armor to protect himself in battle, we can put on the armor of God to protect ourselves against the bad things in the world.
1. The Belt of Truth: Just like a belt holds everything together, the belt of truth helps us to know what is real and right. We should always tell the truth and believe in what is true.
2. The Breastplate of Righteousness: A breastplate protects the heart, and the breastplate of righteousness helps us to do what is good and right in God’s eyes.
3. The Shoes of Peace: Just like shoes help us walk, the shoes of peace help us to have a peaceful and kind attitude towards others.
4. The Shield of Faith: A shield protects us from danger, and the shield of faith helps us to trust in God and believe in His promises.
5. The Helmet of Salvation: A helmet protects our head, and the helmet of salvation helps us to remember that Jesus saved us and we are safe in Him.
6. The Sword of the Spirit: Just like a sword helps us fight, the sword of the spirit is God’s word, the Bible, which helps us to know and obey God’s commands.
Now that we know about the armor of God, let’s remember to put it on every day, just like we put on our clothes. It will help us to be strong, courageous, and protected in all that we do. Let’s pray and ask God to help us always remember to put on His armor and to trust in Him every day. Amen.
