Common Mistake Christians Make In Scripture Memorization

In the last several years that Dawn and I are helping Christians to memorize scriptures, we’ve seen common mistakes they make.

Today, I’ll reveal one of those mistake and how to correct it so you can make scripture memorization as part of your habit this 2012.

About a year ago or so we surveyed thousands of Christians from all over the world. One the questions was “How do you feel about the importance of scripture memorization?”

74% of the respondent said it is “extremely important”

As you can see most Christians find scripture memorization is really important in their Christian walk.

Here’s the thing…but how come most are not doing it?

Is it because of their age or memory capacity? Nope.

The problem is indecision. They don’t want to make a “DECISION” to make scripture memorization as part of their life. When I say “decision”, I mean a committed and serious decision.

Why most don’t want to make this committed decision?

Because when you do not memorize scriptures on a regular basis there seems to be no apparent effect in your Christian walk. There’s no instant “bad effect”. That’s why most Christians have a “half-baked” commitment when memorizing.

It’s like eating cheese burger. They’re unhealty food and may cause a heart attack. If you eat it today, you won’t feel fatter the next day nor you’ll have a heart attack immediately.

But no mistake about it…yes, the bad effect may not be immediate but it is still unhealthy for you.

Scripture memorization will help you stronger spiritually as you meditate God’s promises whereever and whenever. You’re not limited by the availability of your Bible.

Try this: Close your eyes and meditate just one scripture meaningfully. Do it three times and you’ll immediately feel His presence and power. Fear and stress naturally disappear.

Job 1:8 clearly stated that by meditating God’s word you will be prosperous and successful.

So I encourage you to memorize God’s powerful words.

P.S. If you want this year to be bettter than last year, you have to do something different this year. Start with a committed decision in memorizing scriptures.

    • Ling, It’s Joshua 1:8: This 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. KJV
