12 Verse Challenge

12 Verse Challenge

Often, we need to face a challenge before we will find out what we can really accomplish.  I want to extend a challenge to anyone reading this today – memorize one Bible verse per month for 12 consecutive months.  Only one verse a month, we can do that! 

I am the type of person who needs a plan, so this is my strategy.  Each month I will select a verse that I want to memorize.  I will copy it many times onto a sheet of paper and place those papers around my home and office.  Each time I see the verse, I will practice by speaking it aloud until I have it fully memorized.  Then I’ll spend the rest of the month reviewing it and the verses I’ve learned in previous months. 

I want to encourage you to try this with me, for there is no doubt that this is a valuable exercise.  The Bible is God speaking to man – what else could be more important?  

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. – 2 Timothy 3:16-17 (NKJV)

By the end of one year we will have at least 12 more precious verses stored in our hearts – what a treasure!
