Putting on the armor

When talking to children about God and the bible, it is good to have a visual. So as goofy as it may seem, here is the visual's we used when talking about the armor of God. We may not quite have the "look" God was talking about in Ephesians, but none the less, the point was made to my children about the helmet of salvation, sword of the spirit, feet trod with the spirit of peace, shield of faith, breastplate of righteousness, and belt of truth! Put them on today! God has given all of us a way to fight the enemy and win! We have not because we ask not! So ask today for the armor!

Ephesians 6:10-18~Finally my breathren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth having put on the breastplate of righteousness and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perserverance and supplication for all the saints
