n the Bible, the Armor of God is a metaphor for the spiritual tools that Christians can use to defend themselves against the devil and his temptations. The Armor of God is described in Ephesians 6:10-18 and a powerful theme for Sunday School Curriculum on the Armor of God.
The different parts of the Armor of God can be explained to kids in simple terms like this:
Belt of Truth: The belt of truth is a symbol of the importance of truth in our lives. When we live in truth, we are less likely to be deceived by the devil.
Breastplate of Righteousness: The breastplate of righteousness is a symbol of our right standing with God. When we are righteous, we are protected from the devil’s attacks on our conscience.
Feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace: The shoes of peace represent the importance of peace in our lives. When we have peace, we are better able to resist the devil’s attacks.
Shield of Faith: The shield of faith represents our faith in God. When we have faith, we are protected from the devil’s lies and deceptions.
Helmet of Salvation: The helmet of salvation represents our salvation from sin. When we are saved, we are protected from the devil’s power.
Sword of the Spirit: The sword of the Spirit represents the Word of God. When we use the Word of God, we can defeat the devil’s attacks.
The Armor of God is a powerful tool that can help us to live a victorious Christian life. By putting on the Armor of God, we can resist the devil’s attacks and stand firm in our faith.
