Bible Games for Kids: Sword Drill

Penulis : A. James on Thursday, January 24, 2013 | 8:26 AM

Bible games for kids are great, but you need to make sure that each game is teaching a point or a lesson that will help them grow closer to God and/or learn more about his word. A great game that can be used in Sunday School, Church Youth Groups, bible bowls, Christian schools, or even in a church service, is called a sword drill.

What is this crazy sounding game? No, you don't actually use a metal or wooden sword. You use God's word - the bible.

Hebrews 4:12 KJV says... 
12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
and Ephesians 6:17 KJV says...
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 

Sword Drills for Learning the Word of God

Doing regular sword drills with your Sunday school class, youth groups at church, or Christian school will help the kids learn the word of God

How does it work?

Have all the kids hold their bibles above their heads in one hand. The bibles should be all soft back as the hard back bibles can be tougher to turn the pages. When every one is ready and not cheating by putting a finger inside the pages, call out a bible verse for them to find, say go, and see who can find the verse first!

You can have specific verses ready for the sword drill before the class starts or just do it randomly. Either way, the kids will begin learning where the books of the bible are. 

Don't forget to let the kids read the verse when they find it. This will not only ensure they really found the verse, but will get them used to reading God's word. 

For smaller kids, call out books of the bible that are easier to find then work you way up to the harder ones. Some examples of beginner verses for sword drills would be verses found in Genesis, Psalm, Proverbs, Matthew, and Revelation. 

May God bless you in your effort to teach kids about the word of God.
