In this episode of Christians in Training, Lisa Chattalotta explores the protective sportswear that athletes wear. For example in the game of cricket the ball is very hard, so cricketers must wear gloves, shin pads and a helmet.
The bible tells us that God has given us special spiritual armour, that helps us to keep trusting in him and following Jesus. When we put on God's armour, we clothe ourselves with salvation, righteousness, truth, spirit, faith and peace. Just like how an athlete's sports gear protects them, the armour of God provides us with all we need to stay protected in spiritual battles.
Suitable for 4-11 year olds, with age-appropriate variations.
