REVIEW QUESTIONS

1. Who is on God’s side in the spiritual war? Everyone who trusts and follows Jesus
2. If God already won, why does the evil side keep trying to fight against us?
Evil wants to hurt God, but it can’t. So evil tries to hurt us because we matter to God.
3. In the video, Luke’s biggest battle was against fear. What do you think your biggest battle is?
Being selfish, worry, not liking yourself, thinking you can’t do a good
enough job, can’t forgive, etc.
4. Why is the Bible is called the sword of the Spirit?
Bible verses have the power of God’s truth in them. When you read Bible verses or say them, it cuts right through any evil attack.

ACTION QUESTIONS

1. What can you do each day to put on the armor of God? Pray, read the Bible, trust God’s truth, ignore lies, etc.
2. What can you do to fight feelings like worry, fear, selfishness, loneliness, or not liking yourself?
Pray to God about it, read Bible verses that will help you, talk to a
friend who will remind you of God’s truth, etc.

 

4. Pray

Ask the children to share things they’d like to pray about. Write your prayer request so you can continue to pray for your family during the week. Pray together, give them a chance to lead the prayer if they want to. Not sure what to pray?

Pray this: Jesus, thank You for protecting us and fighting for us. Please remind us to wear Your armor every day. In Jesus’ name, amen!
