Memorizing Scripture

December 18, 2008

As I mentioned in a previous post, I have challenged the staff and a few others to memorize Romans 7 with me. Not so we can say it quickly and later forget it or only remember a few verses. My desire is that we remember it AND understand it.

The purpose of memorizing Scripture is not just to get a spiritual merit badge or to be able to quote verses. The purpose is to honor God and grow in Christ likeness. As you memorize, pray that God would give you insight and understanding.

“Receive with meekness the implanted word which is able to save your souls.” James 1:21b

    WOW what a challenge it hard to read I don’t know how you can memorize all of it. Paul use I 24 times v14 to v25.
    Even Paul the greatest christian that ever lived couldn’t keep from sinning. Thank GOD for chapter 8 the most uplifting chapter in the Bible, I need that after reading chapter 7 that helps me to die to self, chapter 8 helps me to live by the Spirit. PTL

      Jerry,

      You can memorize it too. Just read it about 7 times a day. Don’t try to memorize it, just read it over and over until you know it by memory. Just like a commercial that you hear over and over…only you never get tired of the WORD.
