1 The Armor Of God Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Ephesians 6: Willie, waving wildly a small cardboard sword: Take that and that... (stabbing an invisible enemy) Ahhh.. I got cha. Take that you mean ol Philistine. Susie, enters: Hi Willie. What cha doing? Willie: What s it look like I m doing? I m holding off the Philistine army. (Resumes waving sword) Take that and that. Susie, sarcastically: I see. Taking on the entire Philistine army all by yourself huh. Willie, proudly: You bet. I m a mighty warrior like King David. I m strong. Wanna feel my muscle?

2 Susie: I don t think so. Willie, poking Susie with his sword: Take that and that and that. Susie, giggling: Stop! That tickles! Willie, stops waving sword: Whew! Now I m tired. It s not easy saving the whole world, ya know. Susie: Yeah right. Willie, excitedly: Hey! You wanna play soldier with me? Susie: I don t think so. Willie, insistently: Ah come on. It ll be fun. Susie: Well I ll play soldier with you if you ll play house with me. Willie, confused: House? How do ya play house? Do I have to be a kitchen or a bathroom or something? Susie: No silly, Nothing like that. You just have to pretend to come to my place for a visit. Then we ll talk about fun things like buying new curtains, putting up my hair and other stuff like that. Then we ll sip some tea. Willie, insulted: Tea!? Mighty warriors don t sip tea. We drink matcho stuff like cactus juice. Susie: You re funny, Willie. Willie: Are you sure you don t want to play soldier? Susie: Yeah, I m sure. I m already in one battle I don t need to be in another. Willie: Battle? What kind of battle are you in? Susie: A spiritual battle. The one against Satan. Willie: Satan? Susie: That s right. Satan is always trying to get me to do things I know I shouldn t do. Willie: Yeah he does that to me too. Susie: Yeah. He doesn t like it when we obey God or tell our friends about Jesus. And he doesn t want us to have real peace or joy in our lives. So he keeps on giving us a hard time. We have to constantly do battle with him. Willie: But how can we fight Satan. we can t even see him.

3 Susie: That s true. But just because we can t see him, that doesn t mean that Satan isn t real. And he wants nothing more than to take us away from God. Willie: Wow! That s kinda scary, huh. Susie: Yeah But we don t ever need to be afraid of Satan we just have to be prepared for him. Willie: How do we get prepared. Susie: We need to put on the full armor of God. Willie, curious: Full armor of God? Susie: Yes, The full armor of God. God gives us all the weapons we need to fight and defend ourselves against Satan s schemes. The apostle Paul wrote about them in his letter to the Ephesians. Willie: What kind of weapons? Susie: Well, the first thing that Paul mentioned was the belt of truth. Satan fights with lies but we have the truth. God is real. God loves us, and Jesus died for our sins. God is on our side- that is the Truth! Hold on to the truth, and like a good tight belt, the truth will hold you up and keep you strong when Satan attacks. Willie, excited: I have a belt,. (Willie drops from view and quickly pops back up wearing a large belt around his waist) see. What else do I need to get me ready to fight Satan? Susie: Well the next thing you ll need is the breastplate of righteousness. Willie. Speaking slowly: Breastplate of righteousness? Susie: That s right! The breastplate of righteousness will help guard your heart. And that s important. Just like the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness can help to keep you standing tall. Willie: Cool, One breastplate of righteousness coming right up. (Willie drops out of view and soon pops up with a breastplate attached to his chest) Now what? Susie: Next you need shoes. Willie: I ve already got shoes. Susie: Spiritual shoes, Willie. Shoes of The Gospel of Peace. Shoes that will keep you ready to go wherever God sends you to tell others the Good News of God s love for us. Willie: Be right back. (Willie drops out of view and soon pops back up with shoes that have a happy face sticker on the soles). Got my shoes. Looks like I have happy feet. Susie: My feet would be happy too if they were taking me places where I could tell others about

4 Jesus. Willie: Yeah. (pause) Okay what else do I need? Susie: Okay this is an important one. The next item you need the shield of faith. Willie: Shield of faith? Susie: That s right. And this is so important because, with it, you can extinguish all the flaming arrows that Satan will throw at you. And it will also help you to remember that the ultimate victory is ours. When we put our faith in God Satan can t hurt us. Willie: One shield of faith coming right up. (Willie drops from view and soon pops up with a shield attached to his hand). Okay am I ready for spiritual battle now? Susie: Almost. Next you ll need the helmet of salvation. Willie: Helmet of salvation? Susie: Yeah, And this is really important. Satan wants to make us doubt God, Jesus and our salvation. The helmet protects our minds from doubting God s saving work for us. Just remember you are God s child. Satan has already lost and nothing can ever take you away from Him. Willie: Cool. I think I like the Helmet the best. I ll be right back. (Drops from view and quickly pops back up wearing a helmet). Now am I ready for battle? Susie: Almost. You just need one more thing. Willlie: What s that? Susie: The Sword of the Spirit. Willie: I ve already got a sword (waves sword). Susie: Not that kind of sword. In a spiritual battle the best weapon is the Word of God. Willie: The Word of God? Susie: Yep. The Word of God. In the book of Hebrews it says that God s Word is sharper than any two edged sword. Nothing can stand up to it. Willie: Wow! Susie: God s Word can cut Satan s lies to pieces. We can use God s Word to fight Satan just like Jesus did when Satan tempted him in the desert. The words of the Bible are your sword. Willie: Okay, one Sword of the Spirit coming right up. (Willie drops from view and soon reappears with a small Bible in place of where his sword used to be). Okay Now am I ready for

5 battle? Susie: Yes Now you are ready for battle. Willie, excited: Al right! Now I m a mighty warrior. (roars like a lion) And I m strong too. Hey, ya wanna arm wrestle? Susie: No thanks. Willie: Ah, come on. Susie: I don t think so. Willie: Are you afraid? Susie: No, I m not afraid. Willie: Yes you are. You re afraid. Susie: No I m not (After a few moments of arguing back and forth, Susie finally gives in to Willie s request to arm wrestle with him. The two puppets arm wrestle for a few moments until Susie beats Willie. Willie is humiliated.) Willie, embarrassed: Oh man, I can t believe I got beat.. by a girl. This is sooooo embarrassing. Susie: Sorry Willie. Guess you must have forgotten to drink your cactus juice this morning. Willie: Yeah.I guess that s it. (Both puppets begin laughing). The end *Author s note: All armor can be crafted from construction paper and a little art work. Be creative. For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Hebrews 4:12. But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. 1 Thessalonians 5:8.
