This summer the children will be having fun learning that Jesus (God) is our ultimate Super Hero, but that we, as Christians, have "super-hero powers" too! We would love to have your children join us to learn what super hero powers they have!!
The children have learned that one of their super powers is PRAYER - we can talk to God at any time about anything. We also have powerful "tools" that we can use called the Armor of God!
"Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes." Ephesians 6:11
The Belt of Truth: We know the truth about God from His Word, the Bible. We are armed with the Truth so that we can fight against Satan's lies!
The Breastplate of Righteousness: Righteousness is being right with God, doing our best to make sure we avoid sin in our lives.
The Shoes of the Gospel of Peace: We are to go and tell everyone about the Gospel of Peace - that Jesus died on the cross for our sins, He rose from the dead, and He went to Heaven for the forgiveness of our sins. If we believe in Jesus and ask Him for forgiveness of our sins, then we can say with confidence that one day we will go to Heaven too!
The Shield of Faith: The Shield of Faith covers us when we do face sins in our life. "Our shield will never fail because God is always faithful to us."
The Helmet of Salvation: Jesus gave us the greatest gift we could ever receive by dying on the cross to take away our sins - for our Salvation. We continue to sin, but God never stops loving us. When we believe that Jesus died for our sins, and confess our sins, then we are forgiven, and we will get to spend eternity with God in Heaven.
The Sword of the Spirit: God's Word, the Bible, is the "sword" that helps us to fight back against Satan.
As we learn to use our super power of prayer to talk to God, and use our Armor of God to help us fight agains evil, we can be confident that we have the power of God on our side!
Mark your calendars!!
