PRINTABLE PLAY - INTRO FOR "ARMOR OF GOD" FUN PACK
I CAN WIN THE FIGHT AGAINST SIN... BECAUSE I BELONG TO GOD
Mark you bible with the Bible Memory Verse before beginning lesson:
1 John 4:4
|1 - Tickles Bear, 2 - Sticky Bear, 3 - Narrartor|
|NARRATOR||Tickles Bear and Sticky Bear were skipping along, on their way to the playground one sunny day. All of a sudden Sticky Bear stopped. He had a puzzled look on his face.|
|Sticky Bear||Wait a minute...|
|NARRATOR||Sticky Bear had seen a picture of a little red devil with horns that morning, and was thinking about it|
|Sticky Bear||Tickles... Is the devil really a little red guy with horns and a tail?|
|Tickles||No...(hee hee)....the devil doesn't really look like that. That's just a picture somebody made up. I don't really know what he looks like. But I do know some things about him. The devil is the one who is trying to make us not believe in Jesus. The devil tells lies to make people sad. He is the one who tempts us to do wrong. He even tries to lead us to do wrong things to take away our joy.|
|(fearful) Oh...then I-I-I don't think I want to be friends with him.|
|Tickles||Yeah... me neither, And, do you know what else? He is the one who tries to make people believe things that are not true, and things that hurt us. The devil says things that are opposite of what God tells us in His Word - which is the Bible. So we know that the devil lies, because we know that everything in the Bible is true. I guess you could sum it up by saying there is nothing good about him|
|Sticky Bear||Oh, wow!...I'm going to stay far away from him then!|
|Tickles||Well, yeah, you can try, but sometimes he finds you, and you can't really get away from him.|
|Sticky Bear||Oh no!...He sounds scary!|
|Tickles||But, we don't have to be afraid of him. God is there to help you fight against him|
|Sticky Bear||Oh yeah...what do you mean?|
|Tickles||God helps us when the devil tries to tempt us to sin. (Read 1 John 4:4) 'That means, that if you are a follower of Jesus, God's Spirit is in you and gives you the power to stand against the devil. God's Spirit lives in us, and gives us the strength to say "no" when the devil tries to get us to do something wrong; or when the devil tries to tell us something different than what is in the Bible. God gives us the power to say "no...that is not true, what the Bible says is true.|
|Sticky Bear||Oh, I see...that makes me feel better. So, that means I don't have to fight all alone. God is on my side, and since God is the most powerful one, when I rely on God - I can win! And when I rely on God, He protects me against all the wrong things in my life...the things that make me feel guilty|
|Tickles||Yes, that's right Sticky Bear...you got it. God is more powerful than anyone or anything. And, when you belong to Him, and you are relying on him, the devil doesn't win...you do. God knows the devil wants to cause trouble for you and make you do wrong things. But, God loves you so much that He is there for you, and helps you stand strong against sin and against the devil.|
|Sticky Bear||So, what do we do when the devil tries to get us to do something wrong?|
|Tickles||Well, you can start off by praying. Pray for strength. Pray to stand strong against the devil. Pray for your friends and family and church. Pray even more when you feel weak. Pray for each other, that you may all have the courage to tell others about Jesus.You know what? I think we learned enough for today. Let's meet back here again next week. I'll tell you all about the things that God gives us to help us win the fight against sin!|
|Sticky Bear||I would like that a lot. Ok...I'll be back next week to learn more. Can you help me pray now?|
Yes, Sticky Bear," Everyone else who wants to join us can close your eyes and fold your hands and pray with us too.
I praise you for being more powerful than anyone or anything.
Thank you for loving me so much that you help me be strong.
Thank you that you have won the fight over the devil, and that I can win too when I rely on you.
Help me to always remember to call on you for help because I know can't win on my own. I need your help.
Thank you for always being right there to help me whenever I call on you.
In Jesus' name,
|Sticky Bear & Tickles Together||
AMEN! Win against sin! Hooray!
Now let's go make the crafts and play some games!
