Kids Corner: The Helmet of Salvation

The Armor of God isn’t physical armor, it’s spiritual. And the most important part of the Armor of God is the Helmet of Salvation. You need to be saved from your sins more than you need anything else in the whole world. You can put on the Helmet of Salvation by believing in Jesus Christ as your Savior.

Breastplate of Righteousness

Put on the Breastplate of Righteousness by doing what is right. Doing what God tells you to do is like wearing body armor in the spiritual battle that we’re all in. Your righteousness cannot save you from the eternal consequences of your sin (only Jesus can do that for you) but it CAN help protect you from the earthly consequences of sin.

The Belt of Truth

Put on the Belt of Truth by being honest. Just like a belt helps a soldier to carry the weight of their armor and keep it all in place, our integrity and trustworthiness help to strengthen the rest of our spiritual armor, the Armor of God. If you are dishonest, it will be very hard to fight against the spiritual forces of evil.

Kids Corner: Who Is My Neighbor?
