“Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.” Psalm 119:11
Memorizing the Bible is a great way to make sure that you’ll be ready with a word from God for whatever situation you face in life. For encouragement, for help staying on track, for helping you praise the Lord better, for guidance in life’s decisions, God’s Word is always relevant, and memorizing it will keep it in your mind for when you need it.
Families need to keep this in focus. It’s easy to get caught up with the busyness of life and not spend time memorizing God’s Word. Memorizing Scripture makes a great team sport; you can encourage each other to stay on track, and use it as a springboard for your family devotions.
On Sunday nights at 5:30, we meet to help families like yours with this. We’ll take a book of the Bible and read a chapter that was assigned the previous week. The idea is to read through it together as a family at home to get a feel for the message of that book of the Bible, and be prepared to share what your family gleaned from the passage. We’ll have a discussion of the highlights and talk about how we can apply it in our lives.
From the chapter, we’ll memorize key verses at home to hide them in your heart, and recite them together on Sunday. Adults can help their kids at home with the memory process and learn it themselves — Scripture memory isn’t just for kids! Memory passages have age-appropriate options so that parents, older kids, and younger kids can all participate.
Bring your Bibles and your family and join us Sundays at 5:30!
