Bible Memorization

Tonight in Jr. High OTTAGETTU we’ll wrap up our series in the Bible by talking about the benefits & rewards of memorizing Scripture.
We’ll focus on Psalm 119:9-16, a passage that offers a direct invitation & challenge to teenagers: If you want to lead a pure, healthy, successful life, then obey God’s teachings & commandments. This passage highlights several benefits & rewards of knowing, memorizing, & obeying the Bible.
Memorizing Scripture isn’t about doing a religious task. It’s about letting the Bible become an essential part of who we are. We will remind our students that when we memorize verses, those verses become part of the way we think about life & the way we respond to what happens in life.
When you find time this week, have a conversation with your teenager about this lesson on memorizing verses from the Bible. Here are some questions you might want to ask:
  • How might memorizing verses from the Bible help you in everyday situations?
  • If we didn’t have the Bible, how would we learn about God & his desires for our lives? Would that even be possible?
  • How can you be reminded of your friendship with God by memorizing Scripture?
