ARMOR of GOD
Bible Lesson, Game, & Activities

armor of God Bible lessonsThe Bible says God's children are protected by supernatural armor; it is invisible, you can’t see it or feel it. We are told to "put on the full armor of God"  to protect ourselves from Satan’s power and influence, "his schemes," as the Bible puts it. Schemes means to plot or to conspire against someone. Satan is plotting and conspiring to defeat us. (Spend a few minutes discussing sin and how Satan tempts us.) The Bible gives us a description of an ancient Roman soldier's armor and tells us how we can put on supernatural armor to protect and defend ourselves from Satan's fiery attacks.

I just wanted to let you know what a blessing this website has been to me. I am teaching children's church on Sunday nights and had ran out of  ideas to use. I prayed that God would give me some sources. Well, He did, alright!  This website!  I was up until almost 2:00 A.M. one night searching it out. What a wonderful site!  I love it!  It has such great ideas.  Thank you so much! ~ Another sister in Christ, Mable D.

I appreciate these ideas for Sunday School . . . they come in very handy. ~Tessa, East Africa

Spring Cleaning: Soap Cross 

Hold up a bar of soap and ask the children what it is used for. This craft will help to remind us that Jesus died on the cross to cleanse us from our sins.

What you need: A bar of Ivory Soap® for each person (other brands do not work as well), a plastic picnic knife, a toothpick. Have a few extra bars on hand in case the soap breaks during carving.

What you do: Draw an outline of a cross on the soap. Make the cross bars approximately 1-1/2" wide. Whittle away the soap a little bit at a time. DO NOT attempt to cut all the way through at one time. Cut slowly and carefully, otherwise the soap will break apart. Once the cross is carved, place it under running water and smooth out the edges. Scrape the name "Ivory" off the soap. Using a toothpick, carve a heart at the center, or write, "JESUS" across and down the center. (The middle letter "S" in Jesus should be placed at the center of the cross.)

Are You a Transformer?

Focus: Explaining the words Conformed and Transformed from Romans 12:2. To illustrate the two words you will need a lump of clay and a Transformer toy.

Read Romans 12:2, And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Ask children if they know what it means to be conformed and transformed? 

As you explain the word, conformed, repeat the verse, "...be not conformed..." which means we are not to be shaped by the world around us (Begin pressing the clay, making it "conform" to the pressure of your hands.) We can be negatively conformed --changed by the world in the wrong ways--sometimes by the friends we choose, the shows we watch on TV or at the movies, or by . . .

Game: Shine the Light 

Memory Verse: "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life"
John 8:12 (NIV).

To be played during a nighttime class in a secure area. One child, “IT,” is given a flashlight and counts to 25, while the rest of the players hide. “IT” hunts for the players with the flashlight lit. When “IT” finds a player, he/she shines the light on him/her and says, “Whoever follows Jesus will never walk in darkness,” then hands the light to that player who responds by saying, “but will have the light of life.” Both players then hunt for another player. When another player is found, repeat the process until all players have had the light shone on them and are found. (There are multiple variations for the basic rules of the game available on the internet.)

Teach children about the Book of Acts and the Glory of God

This is one of the games you'll find in "LIGHTHOUSE--An Overview for Children on the book of Acts."
