A Challenge: Memorize 40 Bible Passages

Memorizing Bible passages is something that we often had to do as kids. But is it worthwhile to continue to keep them in your minds as an adult?

I think it is.

That’s why I’m leading members of my congregation through a plan to memorize one Bible passage a week for 40 weeks. The name of the group is “His Word, My Heart.” It stresses learning God’s Word “by heart” so that when we’re struggling, we might know a verse to turn to. When we have questions, we might know a verse to answer them. When you’re wondering “what does the Bible say about…” you might just already know!

I’m not planning on going too in depth into this plan or the specific verses here on my blog, but I thought I’d offer any readers here the chance to join if they want. It’s a group that happens through email, and it’s done by yourself at your own pace. If you want to join, I’ll send you an explanation email and the first verse. To join, click on the Contact Me page and include your email address and that you want to join the “His Word, My Heart” group. (Don’t just write your email in the comments or you’ll probably be subject to the spambots!)

I hope you’ll join us!

Psalm 119:11 — I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.

  1. I can’t make the ‘contact me’ page work. (I’m stuck with the public librarie’s computer while mine is on the blink.) Would you please include me in His Word, My Heart? Thanks! Joyce Koplin

    • Hi Joyce,
      I got your “contact me” note, so I guess it worked at least a little bit! 🙂
      I added you to the list and sent an explanation and the first verse out. Expect the second verse at the end of this week. Thanks for your interest!
