How are you doing with memorizing Scripture? If you are like me, you are probably not doing so well. That is why I am starting a Scripture memory challenge.
About the Challenge
Each week I will post the Scripture I memorized the preceding week. The point will be to encourage you to memorize Scripture, as well as for you to hold me accountable. If I do not post any Scripture to memorize, you will know I did not memorize anything that last week. At which time, I am hoping you will encourage me to keep pressing on.
I am using the Fighter Verses app from Desiring God to help me select and memorize Scripture. They also have a website, which is really good at assisting you in learning the verses. The app allows you to select from five Bible translations. I have chosen the ESV, but you can use any version you like.
I will be working through set 2 in the Fighter Verses app starting with week 1. My goal will be to memorize one to three weeks worth of verses each week in set 2 until I catch up to the current date. After which, I will be memorizing verses from their app and from my personal Scripture reading.
Now that you know about the challenge, let’s get started.
This last week, while I was at camp, I memorized the Romans Road and John 14:6. I challenge you to do the same.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
3:23 | for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
6:23 | For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
5:8 | but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
10:9-10 | because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved.
10:13 | For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
