Then, I didn’t as much.
Now, it’s only for sermon preparation.
And now, the new year is here and folks are about New Year’s resolutions, as usual. For me, though, it’s something I always wanted to get back to: you know, that joy of Bible memorization!
Then, there are the numerous benefits of Bible memorization. Just to name a few: aids mind and thought renewal, makes the Word of God foundational in life, enriches the believer’s prayer life, aids in spiritual warfare, etc.
A Few Tips:
- Begin with prayer.
- Check your motive.
- Know your self (perhaps you can only do a verse or a part of a verse. Begin there, where you’re comfortable.)
- Press on (discouragement will come, so keep at it. Don’t give up.)
- Journal your thoughts (whatever the Lord is revealing to you, record.)
I’m sure you can think of more, but these are just a few to help you on your journey of Bible memorization, for this new year and beyond…
