Memorizing Scripture and fresh insights

On our Scripture Memory Project, we’re only memorizing a verse or so each week. But that pace lets us go deep with each verse we memorize.



In our “more-is-better” culture, a verse a week might feel like it’s not enough.

But there are plenty of benefits to be experienced at this modest pace. One of those benefits is fresh insights.

Most people find that it takes them about an hour to memorize a new verse. For an hour, they say the verse over and over. They imagine it. They meditate on it.

Through that process, they arrive at fresh personal insights. And God might speak to them in fresh new ways.  Both of those are treasure-troves of spiritual riches, and can be life-changing.

Then when people meet their Scripture Memory Group, they share their own insights. Everybody is built up by each other’s experiences.

In our Scripture Memory Project, it is God who is the doer. We just show up and pay attention.
