The Armor of God

 
I created this art specifically to be used in introduction of the second verse of “Scripture Power,” but it could be used with any scripture theme.  If you do use it for “Scripture Power,” you should know that there is a small discrepancy.  In the song, it mentions the “Sword of Truth,” while Ephesians calls it the “Sword of the Spirit.”  My personal feeling is this- if you use this activity first, followed by the second verse of the song the next week, the children will likely have forgotten what the sword represents and won’t notice.  If you’re very concerned about them learning the incorrect terms, my only second suggestion would be to change the words in the song.  If you do choose to change the words, make sure to first have it approved by your Primary President.  It’s possible that the “incorrect” wording is deliberate and I’d hate to miss teaching an important point of doctrine.  If you have strong feelings one way or the other, please do share them in the comments.
 
ANYWAY, for this activity, you’ll need to print one of the documents at the bottom of the page.  There is a color version and a black and white version which you can color yourself or ask the Activity Days children to color for you.  Cut out the boy and paste him together at the seams. Post him at the front of the room. 
 
 
 
Cut out the pieces of armor and post them in different areas around the room. 
 
Begin by explaining the concept of the Armor of God.  Ask the children what armor does.  How are the scriptures like armor?  Read Ephesians 6:11 “Put on the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.”
 
Have children choose a picture of a piece of armor from around the room. Read the scripture reference, name the armor, and add it to the boy at the front of the room.  Then sing the corresponding song.  My suggestions are listed below.
 
Remember that singing time is not sharing time.  It’s fine to teach the children a quick lesson, but the emphasis MUST be on the singing.  Make sure to use the vast majority of your time on music. 
 
As a final note, there ARE several church-approved images of the Armor of God.  I created these because I wanted something large enough to be seen by all of the children.  If you have a smaller Primary, you may choose to use the church resources.

You might choose to print a copy of this black and white page for the children to take home and explain in Family Home Evening.  This also satisfies a Faith in God requirement for the older children!

D&C 27 – The Armor of God

I made this handout to accompany D&C 27, The Armor Of God.  Available as a PDF or ODT   “We have the four parts of the body that the Apostle Paul said [are] the most vulnerable to the powers of darkness. The loins, typifying virtue, chastity. The heart typifying our conduct. Our feet, our goals or objectives in life and finally our head, our thoughts” (Harold B. Lee, Feet Shod…

Splitting D&C 27?

By Tamara Patterson Tamara Patterson : #DandC27: With part of the lesson focussed on the Sacrament and the other on the Armor of God; was anyone able to do all of this in one lesson or did you end up splitting it into two lessons? What was your approach? (35 minutes ago) Anna Allred : I split. We watched Brad Wilcox’s talk on grace and then discussed the sacrament. The…

Ephesians 6, The Whole Armor Of God!

Downloaded from: http://brosimonsays.wordpress.com/2013/04/10/ephesians-6-the-whole-armor-of-god/ How do we put on the whole armor of God so that we may, as Paul promises, “be able to withstand in the evil day”? Elder M. Russell Ballard said, “I like to think of this spiritual armor not as a solid piece of metal molded to fit the body but more like chain mail. […]

Galatians – Ephesians

Impossibly, it snowed again Sunday night into Monday.  The weather was so poor that the other teacher and I canceled Monday’s Seminary Sunday night, well before the school canceled.  School was completely out on Monday and on two-hour delay Tuesday, so I only got to teach two lessons this week.  We have missed an entire week of class this month due to snow days.  It’s March — crazy! Unfortunately we…
