"You'll always sink...always...if you only listen to the voices of the circumstances around you."
The above comes in an amazing sermon on the value of memorizing Scripture. The message is found >>here<<. Go there & click "listen" & listen to the 1st part. He quotes several passages of Scripture, stringing them into a wonderful 15 minute sermon in & of itself.
And thus came my latest challenge to take back up Scripture memory. I've been working on Eph 2:10 & 1 Samuel 3:10. I also want to memorize some passages.
Doing this creates a huge temptation for pride, which seems to be one of my uglier besetting sins. Join me in prayer about this, won't you? For motivation, discipline, & humility.
And join me in Scripture memory. There are few guarantees, but here's one: you will NOT regret this particular activity. Rock-solid guarantee.
You have multiplied, O Lord my God,
your wondrous deeds and your thoughts toward us; none can compare with you!
I will proclaim and tell of them,
yet they are more than can be told.
Psalm 40:5 (ESV)
(Piper & his wife have claimed this one as their marriage verse this year. Good one for that purpose!)
Yours for knowing & showing the Word,
