100 Verses

8th November, 2013 - Posted by Claire Larsen - No Comments

Would you like to memorize 100 verses with little effort?  If so, I have just the right way to do it.  Robert J. Morgan wrote a book called 100 Bible Verses Everyone Should Know.   Morgan makes it easy to memorize and he does it in a systematic way as well.

In the first forty-four pages of the book Morgan he explains the importance of Bible memorization and gives some simple how-to tips.  He tells some amazing stories of people who at the end of their life when they have memory problems can quote verses from the Bible that they had learned an entire lifetime earlier. When facing death or serious illness, these people find a stability and steadiness in scripture because they took the time to listen and remember God’s Word when their minds were healthy.

Morgan writes a two-three page chapter for each verse. In his brief narratives he gives explanations, tips, quotes, and stories that bring the verses to life.  He organizes the verses in progressive categories such as Beginnings: The Bible’s Fantastic Four, The Roman Road: The Plan of Salvation, and Listening: The Word of God and Prayer.  Sometimes the individual verses are passages taken apart one verse at a time so that you are actually memorizing not five or six separate verses but part of a chapter.

My discipleship class has been using this book and all of us are successfully keeping up with memorizing.  It’s not written for a child but it’s easy to read and understand, and children would like the stories and explanations.

We live in an uncertain world, and we must be preparing ourselves and our families for whatever the future holds. All the scripture that we memorize and hide deeply in our hearts will never be taken away from us. Every verses we memorize and tuck inside will be a verse that will sometime in the future bring us great comfort and assurance. What are we waiting for?
