40 Things to Remember About the Armour of God

To the GFC Family,
Every part of God’s Word is precious to us. Every part is beloved and indispensable which is why the Psalmist says, in Psalm 119:103,
"How sweet are Your words to my taste!
Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth! "


The Bible is always relevant to us. It always ministers to and comforts us in our time of need. We see this in Ephesians 6. We discover this truth in Paul’s famous passage on the Armour of God as it instructs us how to fight the Devil. It tells us how to defeat him and resist his schemes which is a very common problem in the Christian life. This is such a common issue because everyone wrestles with temptation and struggles with sin.

I have created a list of “40 Things to Remember about the Armour of God” because you can defeat the Devil. You can have victory over him if you take advantage of the weapons that God has given you for the battle.

It is my prayer that the following points will help you to do just that.
