Lesson Review – Ephesians 6:1-20 – The Armor of God


Here are some review notes from this week’s lesson in our preschool and K-4 classes. This week we studied Ephesians 6:1-20 – The Armor of God. This is lesson 67 of 78 in our study of the New Testament. This lesson corresponds with Story 145 in The Gospel Story Bible and with Week 67 of the Old Story New family devotional.

Gospel Truth for Today

Every piece of the armor of God points us back to the gospel. (see Questions for the Car Ride Home)

The Lesson In A Sentence (or Two)

As Christians we need God’s help to live a life that honors God. Ephesians 6:1-20 help us see the resources we have to help us follow Jesus.

Questions for Discussion

1. What are the different pieces of armor you learned about and how do they help us as Christians?

Belt of truth (Ephesians 6:14)—It is the truth of the gospel that surrounds us and gives us the confidence to stand against the enemy.

Breastplate of righteousness (Ephesians 6:14)—All Christians stand secure in the perfect righteousness of Christ.

Shoes of readiness (Ephesians 6:15)—We need to be ready to share the gospel with those around us.

Shield of faith (Ephesians 6:16)—Our faith in God and his Word, particularly his word about his son Jesus, is our shield. If we know his words are true, the lies of the enemy will be exposed and cannot harm us.

Helmet of salvation (Ephesians 6:17)—It is Christ who saves us and keeps us secure.

Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17)—This is God’s word, particularly the good news of Jesus.

Praying together –Take time to pray with your child, ask God to help you remember and use the “armor” that he has given you as you seek to follow him every day.
