It’s been said that memorizing scripture is important. But why is it important and how do you get started?
WHY Memorizing Bible Verses Is Important
It’s not a matter of if your kids will face a difficuclty or challenge, it’s a matter of when. The enemy is also walking around like a lion looking whom he may devour.
The way that our kids combat responding with their flesh to a challenge (which is defeat, stress and anxiety), or the way they deal with the enemy’s attack, is with the sword of the Spirit – the Word of God – choosing to exercise their faith in God by trusting in His Word.
The Word of God itself IS quick and powerful. And it’s even more powerful when it becomes a revealed Word (revelation) in our hearts, but this too, takes time as you develop and cultivate your relationship with the Lord. As parents, we get to disciple our children in the ways of the Lord by incorporating Bible memory verses as a lifestyle.
HOW To Begin Memorizing Bible Verses
The most effective way to begin memorizing Bible verses is by repetition. A short, one-sentence Bible verse can be memorized in as little as 3 times a day over the course of 5 days.
There’s also so many ways to add repetition to Bible verses that can make it more fun and interesting, which include:
- Saying it
- Chanting it
- Singing it
- Writing it
- Drawing it
- Coloring it
- Hearing it
- Seeing it
- Typing it
- Hand motions
The best way to memorize Bible verses is dependent on how your kids learn best. Switching up how you do it can be helpful to take the boredom out because it’s truly possible to make learning the Bible fun.
