Today I am thankful for day 2 of VBS!
“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the Devil’s schemes.” – Ephesians 6:11
That’s the verse we are teaching this week at Ninja Warrior VBS. Our VBS is more than just fun, its primary purpose to teach kids the Word of God and lead them to Christ.
The full armor of God is found in the book of Ephesians.
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Teaching kids what the armor of God is and what it does for each of us has been such a joy and an honor. I loved watched them learn God’s Word and memorize scripture.
Thank you Lord!
