The Shield of Faith

Possible Viewpont: Evangelical Christian

Title: The Shield of Faith

Lesson Objective: To teach young children about the importance of faith in God as part of the Armor of God.

Introduction: Good day, children! Today, we are going to learn about one of the important parts of the Armor of God, which is the Shield of Faith. Just like how a shield protects a soldier in a battle, our faith in God protects us from the enemy’s attacks. Let’s learn more about it!

Story: Let me tell you a story about a boy named David. David was a shepherd boy who loved God very much. One day, a giant named Goliath, who was very scary and strong, started threatening David’s people. But David had faith in God that God would help him defeat the giant. So, David only took his sling and some stones, and with God’s help, he was able to defeat Goliath. David’s faith was like a shield that protected him from fear and helped him to do brave things for God.

Bible verse: The Bible tells us in Ephesians 6:16, “In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.” This means that our faith in God can protect us from the bad things that the devil tries to make us do.

Discussion: Just like David, we can also have faith in God. When we trust and believe in God, it’s like we are holding up a shield that keeps us safe from the bad things in the world. Sometimes we might feel afraid or worried, but when we have faith in God, we can remember that He is always with us and will help us through anything.

Activity: Let’s make our own shields of faith! We can decorate a paper plate with colors and shapes and write ‘Faith in God’ on it. This will remind us to trust God and have faith in Him every day.

Conclusion: Just like a shield protects a soldier in a battle, our faith in God protects us from the enemy’s attacks. Let’s always remember to hold on to our shield of faith and trust in God, knowing that He will always be with us. Amen.

Object Lesson

Illustration: The Shield of Faith

Props needed:
1. A shield (this can be a toy shield or a makeshift shield made from cardboard and colored paper)
2. A poster or image of a knight or warrior wearing armor
3. A small, pretend sword

1. Begin by showing the young children the poster or image of a knight or warrior wearing armor. Explain to them that just like how a knight wears armor to protect themselves in battle, God also gives us spiritual armor to protect us from harm.
2. Then, introduce the shield and explain that one of the pieces of spiritual armor is the Shield of Faith. Hold up the shield and explain that just like a physical shield protects a knight, the Shield of Faith protects us from spiritual harm.
3. Encourage the children to take turns holding the shield and pretending to defend themselves from imaginary attacks using the small, pretend sword. As they do this, emphasize the importance of having faith in God to protect us from anything that tries to harm us.
4. Finally, lead the children in a short prayer, asking God to help them have strong faith and trust in Him to protect them.

Through this illustration, young children will have a better understanding of the concept of the Shield of Faith and how they can rely on God for protection. It also provides a visual and interactive way for them to engage with the biblical concept of the Armor of God.

Craft Idea

Craft Idea: Shield of Faith Craft

– Paper plates
– Construction paper (in various colors)
– Scissors
– Glue
– Markers
– Bible verses about faith

1. Begin the craft by talking to the children about the concept of the “Shield of Faith” from the Bible, explaining that it is a part of the armor of God that helps protect us from spiritual attacks.

2. Have the children cut out a large circle from the paper plates to serve as the base of their shields.

3. Next, provide the children with construction paper in various colors and encourage them to cut out shapes to decorate their shields. They can cut out crosses, hearts, or other symbols that represent their faith.

4. Once the shapes are cut out, have the children glue them onto their shields in a way that is visually appealing to them.

5. After the decorations are in place, the children can use markers to write Bible verses about faith on their shields. You can provide them with verses such as Ephesians 6:16, Hebrews 11:1, or Matthew 17:20 to choose from.

6. Once the shields are complete, encourage the children to hold them and talk about how faith in God’s promises can protect and strengthen them in their daily lives.

This craft will serve as a tangible reminder to the children of the lesson on the “Shield of Faith” and can be a great visual aid for them as they continue to learn and grow in their faith.
