MEMORIZING THE SCRIPTURES
"Your word I have hidden in my heart, that I might not sin against you" (Psalm 119:11,NKJV)
Scripture Memorization is becoming the lost art in Christianity. Yet the Bible frequently urges believers to keep God's word within them (Colossians 3:16; Proverbs 7 : 1). Moses insisted that God's people keep His word in their hearts (Deut. 6:6). Scripture memorization is the best defense against sin (Psalm 119:11; Luke 4:4-12). It is the basis of wise counsel and correction. It will engrave God's word in your heart. It facilitates worship and fellowship. It produces new depths of holiness, maturity and security. It is a natural consequence of your love for God's word (Psalm 119:49).
Keep memorizing at least one verse each week, and that can produce amazing results in your life. You can begin with today's memory verse. Don't ignore or let today's devotional pass without practice. Ensure you memorize the key verse of today and those of the days ahead. You will enjoy a shocking number of benefits following this art.
Scripture memorization is an invaluable ally in molding a Christ-like character.
