God is NOT dead, He is surely ALIVE and He is on the MOVE. Join the movement.
Because God is moving and He wants us to be a part of what He’s doing. But we can’t truly take part until we KNOW Jesus.
Joshua 1:8 says, “Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
I want to give you a challenge that is simple to do, but that is really going to help you live a victorious Christian life. Start specifically with the list here, and focus on memorizing one at a time over the course of the next 21 days. You may be tempted to add more, but the point is not just to see how many you can remember for a short time, so stick with the challenge! The point is to create a lifelong habit of hiding God’s Word in your heart. You may also be tempted to ignore, this list and start with something else, but please resist. I have a purpose for giving you this list to begin with.
How to Get Started
I’m not going to re-invent the wheel. My family and I have been using the Charlotte Mason method for Scripture memory and it is fantastic! Its so simple for the whole family, even our littlest members are memorizing Scripture and recalling it.
The set up took us a few hours, but it was well worth it. You can buy your supplies new, or you can do like we did, and re-purpose some things lying around the house. I used a small shoe box, and cut some dividers I wasn’t using to fit. Then we wrote the Scriptures we wanted to start memorizing on index cards (that was the part that took the longest)!
The Scripture List
2 Corinthians 5:17
2 Timothy 3:16
2 Corinthians 5:18-20
*If it takes you about 2 days to memorize each one, you will have this entire list committed to memory by the end of the challenge. If it takes you a little longer, THAT’S GOOD!! Remember, the point is to create a lifelong habit, starting with this foundation, NOT to rush through it as fast as you can.
