Bible Memorization

Next Wednesday, March 16th, our Sr. High ministry will be continuing our series on HABITS for spiritual growth as we talk about Bible Memorization. Psalm 119:11 tells us, “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Bible memorization helps us become more familiar with who God is & how God wants us to live. Jesus relied on Bible memorization as his primary defense for fighting off Satan’s temptation.

Deuteronomy 6:4-9 talks about the important role parents play in helping young people learn & love Scripture. This week I’ll be challenging our young people to learn a verse together @ OTTAGETTU. We’ll work on memorizing Psalm 119:11, but you might want to choose a different verse. Please use these questions to generate some good discussion:
  • Why should Christians memorize Bible verses? What are some ways it might help your spiritual life?
  • What is the best way for you to memorize Scripture?
  • If you decided you wanted to value the Bible more, how would you make this happen? What changes or decisions would you make to make the Bible a greater treasure to you?
