This verse tells us that we must be prepared as we go into battle, a spiritual battle. Without God’s Armor and protection we do not stand a chance. God will empower us to fight the good fight and to make a stand against the devil.
1. Why do we need spiritual armor? (To stand against the wiles of the devil.)
2. What is it we fight against? (Against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.)
3. Should we be afraid of this battle? (No, God will help us stand against evil. The powers of darkness will be defeated by God.)
4. How does God help us in the battle against evil? (He gives us the weapons and armor we need to stand strong.)
5. Why is it important that we that we put on our spiritual armor every day? (Without it we will be weak and easily defeated.)
6. How can we use each piece of spiritual armor at home? At school? At church?
