Psalm 119:11

I have hidden your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.

We don’t memorize much anymore. Largely because we don’t have to. Machines memorize for us now. And, in general, we only do what we have to do. Are we missing out on anything? Is it hurting us in any way?When was the last time you memorized something, be it Scripture or petty, or song?

What was that like for you?

A few years back, I was inspired by someone who said they committed to memory a few passages of Scripture as opposed to isolated verses.

So I’ve memorized, with his inspiration, the following key passages:

Psalm 16
John 15:1-11
Colossians 3:1-17
Romans 8:1-8

as well as Richard Foster’s The Prayer of Authority that you can read here.

So what has this done for me?

Made me into awesome memory guy?

Or is there more going on?

Well, we shall explore what is going on with memory in more detail in the days ahead.

It may be deeper than you think…

In the Name of Jesus,
Soli Deo Gloria
