C3 KIDS SUMMER
– Belt of Truth –
Memory Verse: Ephesians 6: 13
Put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm.
At Home Conversations:
Parents: Have your kids
Read: Act 7:54-60 Stephen and the truth.
John 14: 6 Jesus is the truth. The truth of God holds us strong and together even in hard times.
Colossians 1:17 – God holds everything together.
The belt of truth is one of the first pieces of armor to put on to hold all things together.
What is the truth?
How do you know what is truth?
What truth does God speak about you?
How does God ask us to speak and live the truth?
Is there a time that speaking the truth is not the right thing to do?
Sometimes it is hard to know what is the truth and what is a lie. The world can tell us lies about ourselves, God and others. God will always show us the truth.
Check that you are hearing and sensing it from God, by praying, looking in God’s word, and then ask someone who has been following Jesus for a long time that you can trust. Truth will always line up with God’s character.
Have your kids find a quiet spot to worship, listen and respond to the truth that God says about them or a situation.
