The Armor of God
In Ephesians 6:10-18, the Bible talks about the Armor of God.
For kids, this passage is especially exciting as they get to envision themselves as warriors for Christ, suiting up for victory as they put on each piece of the armor of God.
When I taught the armor of God to my kids, I know they were thrilled by the idea that morning Bible reading outfitted them with the sword of the Spirit, and that by believing on Jesus as their Savior, not only were they saved, they wore the helmet of salvation and the shield of faith. It was an amazing realization for them!
Bible verses about the armor of God don’t just appear in Ephesians chapter 6. The Lord carries themes throughout his Word, and spiritual battle is one of those themes. I’ve compiled some truly wonderful Bible verses about the armor of God for your kids into a Bible memory verse card set with 48 cards. The cards have some fun watercolor illustration of knights, and they’re ready for you right now!

Children love to learn, and childhood and young adulthood are the perfect time for memorization–their brains are primed for it.
You can use your Thinking Kids Press Bible memory cards in a few ways:
- Work through each card with your child until they commit the verses to memory.
- Keep the cards in a box on your dining table. Read and discuss one each meal.
- During your family prayer time, pray through the verses a few at a time.
- Use the cards to discuss biblical fruit during teachable moments.
- Have your child copy the verse from one card each day.
- Paste them to the bathroom mirror or frame them and make a collage.
- Use them in coordination with your Armor of God Bible study and lapbook.
Bible Memory Verse Card Set Divider
Your family can decorate and use a Bible memory card box just like we did in the Family Prayer Box Project.
There are a number of Bible memory card sets available in the store at ThinkingKidsPress.com. You’ll find a Bible memory verse card divider included in this set so that you can keep your sets separated, along with a copyright card.
Armor of God for Kids
The Bible Verses about the Armor of God set is based on Ephesians 6:10-18a:
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication.
You will find cards on the armor of God, fighting the good fight of faith, and on standing firm in Christ, our Savior. God is our refuge, shield, and fortress. We are only able to fight when we depend fully upon him.
Bible Verse Memory Cards
Some of the Bible memory verses are longer passages that are split between several cards, and some are short and sweet.
These cards are put together to aid you in your family discipleship. Be creative about how you use them in your family as you teach your kids the word of God.
Print Your Bible Memory Verse Card Set
To print your set, you’ll want to print with a landscape page orientation. The memory verse cards should be printed single-sided on cardstock. You can laminate them and store them on a bookring, or print them on cardstock and store them in a special box.
Make Bible memorization fun for your children with lots of joyful encouragement!
Hiding God’s Word in their hearts will benefit your children for life.

You want to teach the Bible…
As parents, we deeply desire the best for our kids. We look for the right schools, we make them eat right and exercise, and we get them involved in extracurricular activities. We take our job as parents seriously.
But are we also putting our time and energy into
teaching them the Bible? Giving them the life-changing, soul-nourishing words of Scripture is not only doable, it’s an essential part of parenting kids for Jesus. And the good news is, studying God’s Word as a family doesn’t have to be difficult!
2 Timothy 2:15, ESV, says:
Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved,
a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.
Our job, as parents who love Jesus, is to help our kids become approved workers, unashamed and rightly handling the word of truth.
The good news? Teaching the Bible isn’t hard. Your family can learn the Bible together.
…and you can!
