Use the resources below as we continue our children's series about the Armor of God. This week we will focus on the sixth piece of armor that the apostle Paul mentions to the Ephesian church- the Sword of the Spirit. This is our first and only piece of the armor which is truly offensive. We use it to counterattack the enemy. The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of the Lord- our Bible. Knowing and being able to use the truths found in the Bible are essential to fighting our enemy. Even Jesus used scripture to counter Satan when he was tempted in the desert. Reading our Bible can help remind us of what is true and important in live. Memorizing scripture can help us be ready when we our attacks by doubt, fear or anger. God also uses scripture like a "double-edged" sword to cut through the barriers we place around ourselves in order to correct and train us to make us whole again.
