Win Against Sin: The Armour of God
“Therefore put on the full armour of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.” Ephesians 6:13
This week we started our new series, Win Against Sin. I figured you could use a refresher on what we talked about and a preview of what was to come. Check out this video that tells all about the armour of God then take a look at the Dig Deeper questions below.
1. What is your favourite super hero movie? Who’s the good guy? Does he or she have any super powers? Who’s the bad guy in the movie? Does your hero win over his or her enemy in the end?
2. Who is God’s enemy? There are lots of names for him… the Devil or Satan are two of them. If you are a friend of God then that means that the Devil is your enemy, too, and we are in a fight against him with God. The Devil is trying as hard as he can to make sure that you won’t be friends with God anymore by telling us lies and trying to get us to do bad things and sin.
3. Is there any reason for us to be afraid even though we’re in a battle? Read Psalm 121. What does it say about who is watching over us and protecting us? Will God ever leave us alone or forget about us? No way! He’s always with us and helping us.
4. As we continue our series, Win Against Sin, we’ll be learning about the tools that God gives us to help us fight sin and the Devil and protect us in our battle. Can you name a few already? (hint, they’re called “The Armour of God”)
5. The best way we can fight the battle with the devil is by reading our Bible and praying. Pray together right now that God will help you and protect you as you stay close to him and grow to be more like Jesus everyday.
