Paul’s teaching in Ephesus caused some contention among the local people, but many still chose to follow Christ. In this Come, Follow Me FHE lesson, you will learn more about the importance of being obedient, and why we need to put on the “whole armor of God.” Our FHE lessons include three lesson plans for different ages, treat recipes, activity ideas, and more.
Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice.
1. Hope of Israel, Zion’s army,
Children of the promised day,
See, the Chieftain signals onward,
And the battle’s in array!
Hope of Israel, rise in might
With the sword of truth and right;
Sound the war-cry, “Watch and pray!”
Vanquish ev’ry foe today.
2. See the foe in countless numbers,
Marshaled in the ranks of sin.
Hope of Israel, on to battle;
Now the vict’ry we must win!
3. Strike for Zion, down with error;
Flash the sword above the foe!
Ev’ry stroke disarms a foeman;
Ev’ry step we conq’ring go.
4. Soon the battle will be over;
Ev’ry foe of truth be down.
Onward, onward, youth of Zion;
Thy reward the victor’s crown.
