Hands-on Faith for Families – Week of July 22, 2019
Theme: Put on the Full Amor of God
Helmet of Salvation
Scripture:…and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God (Ephesians 6:17 ESV)
Play: Take turns thinking of jobs or activities that require a helmet (firefighting, football, construction, biking) and discuss why a helmet is necessary for that job or activity.
Talk: Sometimes we need helmets to protect our heads. A helmet can prevent an injury during a fall or protect us if something drops on us. In Ephesians 6:17, the Bible tells us that God gives us something that’s like a helmet. The Bible calls it the “helmet of salvation.” Salvation protects the most important part of us — our souls. Does knowing that your soul is safe with God make you feel more secure? How does that security affect how you live?
Pray: Pray that you will be secure in the knowledge of your salvation.
