Scripture Memory Verse #1

Recently, my boyfriend encouraged me to memorize scripture. So, I thought about the idea and decided it was a pretty good one! I realized to be able to share Christ’s love with others…I need to have scripture memorized to be able to use.

I didn’t really know where to begin with memorizing scripture, but I did have a book called 31 Verses Every Teenager Should Know. The book has devotions for each verse. So, I started with number one: Hebrews 4:12.

Now, I needed different ways to memorize this. I started by doing the books devotion. My boyfriend also shared with me a thing called S.O.A.P. (Scripture, Observation, Application, Prayer) Below is my SOAP for Hebrews 4:12.

S: (scripture) For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. (Hebrews 4:12)

O: (observation) God is living and active and more powerful than anything or anyone else!

A: (application) God should be the main focus of my life! He is more alive than anything or anyone else will ever be!

P: (prayer) Lord, help me to realize when nobody is there you always are! You are the living and active one!!

So, after that, I put an index card with the verse in my agenda for school. I made myself read the verse every time I opened it and closed it. I became very aware of the verse, and this really helped me memorize it!

I also had someone to keep me accountable. Tonight I recited the verse to my boyfriend. He is helping me stay in God’s word, so there’s no one better than him to quiz me!! šŸ™‚

So, I plan on sharing my memory verses with you, maybe you’ll start memorizing some too!

Also, be sure to check out my wonderful boyfriend’s blog,! He is so full of insight on many topics! šŸ™‚
