Lesson: "Hold Up the Sword of the Spirit"

Today we continue an eight-week series on the Armor of God.

Scripture: Matthew 4:1-11

Step 1: Song video -- "Armor of God"

Step 2: Print out the Bible Story Map

Step 3: Read the Bible Story; your child can mark the map as you read.

Step 4: Watch the Bible Story video. Ask:

  • How did the devil tempt Jesus? (By lying to him.)
  • What things did the devil try to get Jesus to do? (Jump off a building, bow down and worship the enemy, turn the rocks into bread.)
  • How did Jesus fight off the devil? (By using scripture.) 

Step 5: Watch the Citizens video. Ask:

  • What was Robbie tempted to think or do (Try to be famous or proud.)
  • What helped him overcome this temptation? (The Bible verses he memorized.)
  • What Bible verses do you know that can help you when you are tempted to believe lies?
  • To use the sword of the spirit, can you just know the verses, or must you do something with them? (You must declare them and believe them, so you will act on the truth of the verse and not give into the temptation.) 

Step 6: Watch the Memory Verse video and practice the motions.

“Put on (cross arms on chest)
All of God’s armor. (move hands from head to toes)
Then you can remain strong (make muscles with arms)
Against the devil’s evil plans.” (put fists on hips)
Ephesians 6:11 (make book with hands) 

Step 7: Print out the "Pictionary" game pieces:
Grade 1 cards
Grade 1 questions
Grade 2-5 cards
Grade 2-5 questions

Step 8: Play "Pictionary." Have your child take a card, and then draw a picture of it. See how fast you can guess what it is. Once the picture is guessed, ask your child one of the questions on the sheet. Then, switch roles. Take turns, and after each guessed drawing, ask a question from the Question Sheet. 

Step 9: Song video -- "Armor of God"

Step 10: Song video -- "Raise a Hallelujah"

Step 11: Lead your children in prayer, Lead your children in prayer, asking God to strengthen their faith, enlarging their shield and helping them to hold it up when they begin to doubt. 

Step 12: If your child likes to color, print out the Bible Coloring Page, which has the memory verse on it; or the Decoder Sheet.
