(Take out the sword and show everyone.)

Does anyone know what this is? It is a sword! Do you know what swords are used for? Fighting! In Ephesians 6:11 we are told to put on God’s armor and most of the armor listed is for our protection. But there is only one piece of armor that is used for fighting back. Do you know what is? The Sword of the Spirit!

Swords are sharp and they are used for cutting and the Bible says in Hebrews 4:12 that God’s Word is sharper than the sharpest knife! That means that it is powerful!

The Sword of the Spirit is the Word of God. The way that you use it is by memorizing and quoting Scripture when you need it. When Jesus was in the wilderness being tempted by the devil he overcame those temptations by quoting Scripture. When Jesus quoted those verses that was like he was taking some serious jabs at the devil and the devil couldn’t take it anymore and he ran away!

When we are being attacked by temptation and by things that come at us in life God has given us a weapon to fight back! It is the Sword of the Spirit. We should read God’s Word and memorize Scripture verse that apply to our lives. That way when we are facing trouble we can put that sword out and fight off our enemy!

Object Lesson

(Hold up the compass.)

Does anyone know what this is? (Wait for a response.) That’s right it is a compass. Do any of you know how to use it? Many people know that a compass helps you to find the right direction, but most people don’t really know how to use one very well.

The compass has a pointer that has been magnetized and it always points in a certain direction. Do you know what direction that is? North! If you are ever lost in the woods or if you are ever lost when you are on a trip and if you know how to use a compass it will help you because it will always point to the north and you can find every other direction based off of that.

In life many people feel like they are lost. They don’t know which way to go. They feel like they don’t have a purpose or meaning. Many of them wish that they had a compass to help guide them.

(Hold up the Bible.)

This is also a compass. It is the compass for our life. When we read the Scriptures God will give us direction through the Holy Spirit and He will guide us in the best path to take.

In Psalm 119:105 is says that God’s Word is like a lamp to our feet and a light for our path. Do you know what that means? That means that God will help to direct us and guide us. He will help us to know which direction to take. He will help us to avoid the obstacles that come at us in our life. If we ever feel like we are lost in our life the Bible will help us find the right way to go.
