At JICC we desire to help every member grow in their understanding of the Word of God. One of the ways that we can do this effectively is by hiding the Word of God in our hearts. Why should we take time to memorize the scripture? Scripture mentions the following encouragements for memorizing. Memorizing…

  • Is one of the most effective ways to “meditate” on the Word of God “day and night” (Joshua 1:8).
  • Helps us treasure God’s Word in our hearts that we might not sin against the Lord (Psalm 119:11).
  • Allows us to meditate on the Lord in the “watches of the night” (Psalm 63:6) so that we can fix our eyes on your ways (Psalm 119:15).
  • Helps us in evangelism, making the Word of truth readily available to build our own and others’ faith—since “faith comes from hearing and hearing through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17).
