Scripture Memory


Many people have told me they can’t memorize Scripture. I’ll be upfront. For many years I didn’t want to put forth the necessary effort. When I was a new Christian, I memorized 75 verses in the Navigators’ Topical Memory System. Years passed. I forgot many of them because memorized Scripture leaks. The recipe for Scripture memorization is 1 teaspoon hard work and 10 teaspoons of persistent REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW!


Dr. Waylon Moore developed a list of 100 verses to memorize. It took me 5-years to learn them. It wasn’t easy. I added the verses to memorize in 31 Steps Toward Spiritual Maturity to his list. I review about 7 verses daily while I’m eating breakfast. It takes three weeks to review the following list. Then I begin again.


Scripture memory will add fuel injection to your spiritual life. The following verses make a much greater impact on me now than they used to. I challenge you to learn the following verses and continue to review them.
