We are up to the second last week of our series through the Armour of God in Ephesians 6:13-18! Today we are looking at verse 17 which talks all about salvation and the word of God. Two very big terms, and two really important things to put on!
Check out the video to see what we’re on about!
Study Five: Heads Up!
For today’s study you’ll need:
- Your Battle Gear booklet
- Your Bible
- The Luke 4:1-13 Script
- Two friends/family members
- A piece of coloured card/paper
- The envelope
- The printed out photos of a helmet, cross, sword and Bible
When it comes to the spiritual battle that goes on all around us, God doesn’t just want us to sit there taking hits from the enemy. He wants us to fight for him. Ephesians 6 speaks about the word of God as a sword that we can fight the devil with. We are given eternal salvation by Jesus, and we are also equipped with His word to fight against the lies of the enemy and instead spread God’s truth.
What do you think it would look like to fight for God?
Don’t worry though – God doesn’t just give us a bunch of armour and a sword and let us have at it. Hebrews 12 speaks about how God is always training us for the fight. He trains us through his word, this gift of salvation, and by making us more annd more holy every time we come to him.
So not only is God always with us, protecting us from the enemies attacks (like what we looked at last week), but he’s also equipping us for battle and training us up so that we can not only continue to stand firm with faith, but also run into battle for him. God gives us a salvation that will never fade away, and he gives us his word so that we can know his truth’s and speak them in the face of the enemies lies.
God is the great saver, equipper and trainer. What’s another word we can use for God? Let us know in the comment box below!
Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
