Bible memorization is an excellent practice for yourself to do and keep in mind that when you share your faith with others, you can tell them precisely where is said in the Bible. Referencing the Bible will make it know that you are not just making something up.
The Bible is a double-edged sword that can protect you and conquer giants. YouVersion has a Bible app that can be helpful to dig deeper into God’s word.
As a Christian, we are not to try to impress others with our scriptures knowledge that we have obtained, but rather to point people to Jesus Christ. Bible memorization hides God’s word in your heart. ~ Bill Greguska
When referring to using your memory to gain wisdom from the Bible, I am not referring to being legalistic like the Pharisees in Jesus’s time or trying to use the Bible as a hammer, and hammer others with it.
We need to gain the ability to recall what the Bible teaches and applying it to our life first. Then to share the Gospel with others in the form of teaching, training, rebuking, and instructing. Hopefully, you can be one of those who purposely choose to walk with the Lord, using the Bible as their lamp unto their feet.
Bible Memorization Does Not Have To Be Difficult
Bible memorization does not always have to be a word for word, but instead, what I am referring to is the ability to take what the Bible says and puts it into your words to personally apply it to your life and the lives of others without altering the meaning.
This style, however, does not always work well when sharing what you know about the Bible with someone new in their faith. In that case, it is often best to ask the person whom you are talking to if they could wait until you could tell them precisely what they need to know the next time you both talk. That is assuming they believe in the Bible as being the word of God, and it would only be logical to want to put His word in your heart.
