Comments Off on 5 Reasons to Memorize Scriptures

I have recently begun participating in a Bible memorization group. It is already paying off to have someone to be accountable to in meeting my memorization goals. I highly recommend memorizing portions of the Bible as a part of your spiritual growth. Whether you work along with the group, follow this site’s plan, or work out your own plan.

Here are five reasons it is a great idea to memorize the scriptures:

  1. They are inspired of God (2 Tim. 3:14-17; 1 Cor. 2:13; 2 Pet. 1:20-21; 1 Thess. 2:14; 1 Cor. 14:37)
  2. The Word has power to make us wise unto salvation (2 Tim. 3:15)
  3. Memorizing the Scriptures will help us always to be ready to give an answer (1 Pet. 3:15)
  4. The Word is like food to us (1 Pet. 2:2; Jer. 15:16; Ez. 2:8-9; Heb. 5:11-14)
  5. The Bible can prepare us to help and teach one another (Col. 3:16; 2 Tim. 2:14-17)
