What's the best way to resist temptation and sin? Put on the full armor of God!
Help your students prepare for the battles they will face by teaching them about the armor of God from Ephesians 6:10-20. Roman soldiers used to wear heavy pieces of armor when they went to battle.
Paul, who lived and preached during the Roman Empire, instructed fellow Christians to put on their spiritual armor just like the soldiers put on their fighting armor for battles. This spiritual armor is invisible but it protects us against attacks from Satan. Satan often tries to trick us by deceiving us. The armor of God helps us stand strong in attacks.
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. 11 Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:10-11

When we put on the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, and the helmet of salvation, we know God's truths and are not easily tricked. The shoes of peace help us to share the Gospel and stay calm in stressful situations. The sword of the Spirit means we know and understand God's words, and the shield of faith protects us from the schemes of the evil one by relying on God. We are ready for battle when we put on this armor of God.
