2 Timothy 2 (KJV) -- 15Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

This scripture supports the practice of reading and studying the Bible, as the Word of truth, so that you will be able to stand up for your faith and give an answer when somebody asks you something regarding your faith, God, Jesus, the Bible, etc.

Memorizing God's Word ....

Joshua 1:8-9 (King James Version)

8This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

9Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Where to Buy Blank Bible Memory Cards

You can purchase blank Bible verse memory cards, and vinyl pouches to keep your memory cards in:

NavPress Bible Verse Memory Cards and Vinyl Pouches

Bible Verse Memory Cards ...

Oh yes, you will want to write down your Bible memory verses onto cards. I like to use the small cards, just big enough to write one or two verses, in small print. You can also get vinyl pouches to put the cards into.

These small cards are handy to carry around, not as bulky as 3x5 cards. I write Bible verses on 3x5 cards, in larger print, then go over with different colored felt markers, and then place around our home.

How to Memorize Scriptures ...

Step #1 -- How to memorize scriptures -- Divide the Bible verse into parts, like this -- Take this scripture, for example:

John 14:6 (King James Version)

“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”

Step #2 -- First part: “Jesus saith unto him” -- repeat this however many times you need to (for me, sometimes I have to repeat parts of scriptures many, many, many times!)

Step #3 -- Second part: “I am the way” -- Repeat xtimes, then back up and say the 1st part several times, then say the 2nd part several times, then say 1st and 2nd part together several times.

Step #4 -- 3rd part: “the truth, and the life” -- repeat xtimes, then say 1st part, 2nd part, and 3rd part. If necessary, repeat each part separately, then together, until you can say all these 3 parts correctly.

Step #5 -- 4th part: “No man cometh unto the Father, but by me” -- Repeat as many times as necessary, then repeat 1st part, 2nd part, 3rd part, until you have those parts memorized. Then say all four parts together. If still having problems, go through the process all over again.

Step #6 -- It will get a little easier than at first. You will get this Bible verse (and more!) memorized, if you break the verse(s) into parts, and memorize each part separately, then add the parts, until you have the verse(s) memorized.

I memorized 283 Bible verses when I was a new Christian, and all in the King James Version! I can’t quote all of those scriptures exactly, but those scriptures are still in my heart ....

And I can find most of those scriptures when they come to mind easily, which helps when studying the Bible, listening to teachers, or sharing my faith ....

Sharing the Word of God ....

Deuteronomy chapter six tells us that we are to take the Word of God very seriously, sharing with others all day, keeping in mind the Word of God all day long, and even posting the Word of God in our house!

6And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:

7And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.

8And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.

9And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.
