Raising Biblical Superheroes (Ephesians 6}: The Belt of Truth and The Breastplate of Righteousness...and a winner!

It has been a little bit of a rough weekend around here. Little A has not been feeling well. The weather has been yucky. And I have been consumed with finishing our upcoming "find joy in the journey" ebook.

All that to say, we did not get to have "Superhero Saturday" yesterday. Instead, we had "Superhero Sunday" today! :)

We started off with a game of Superhero Memory. Do your kids love to play memory as much as my boys do? When I saw it, I knew they would love it! Go here to download your own copy of the game. 

When the game was over, I used the pictures of the superhero characters on the cards to initiate our discussion of The Belt of Truth and The Breastplate of Righteousness, the remaining two pieces in The Armor of God.

"Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist." (Ephesians 6:14)

First, I pointed out the belt that Batman wears and we discussed the fact that God tells us we need to have The Belt of Truth buckled around our waist. Basically, we need to be secure in the truth of His word and not the lies that this world has to offer.

And then, I did the only thing I could think of to help them understand The Breastplate of Righteousness. I had Little A go get his chest protector (a piece of his catcher's gear) and put it on!

It really brought home the fact that the righteousness of Christ that covers us when we put our faith and trust in him will be what "protects" us from a life without God and an eternity spent separated from Him! Thank you Jesus for taking our place on that cross!

Go here to find out how you can have a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ and eternal life in Heaven with Him when you die.

When we were finished, we of course put on our superhero costumes and went to "war!"

And that's it my friends, we have officially finished our Raising Biblical Superheroes series here on the blog. Not that we won't continue to have Biblical Superhero days around our house every now and then!

I hope you enjoyed playing superheroes with your little ones, all the while teaching them what it means to be a "warrior" for God, fully clothed in His armor!

If you missed it, go here to see how we taught The Sword of the Spirit, here to see how we taught The Helmet of Salvation and The Shield of Faith and here to see how we taught the Gospel of Peace.

And now, the winner of the Custom "Little Superhero Cape" from 517 Creations IS...{drumroll please}...
