I read all of 2 Thessalonians this morning, but alas, I am not going to post about it until I get some more time later because it delves into the second coming of Christ. Once again, isn't it something that work has to get in the way of a great blog post or bible study? :) I guess one must keep balance.
So...I'm going to direct you to a blog post that I find fascinating and inspiring. I guess I should say that I think the author is inspiring, because she has actually memorized the entire book of Revelation. I truly appreciate her insights and agree as to the benefits of memorizing scripture and know that you will find her "how to" post beneficial.
But first, I must say a few words of my own. I have attempted to memorize an entire chapter of a book of the bible before because I needed the application of those scriptures in my life. I only got the first and last 4 verses memorized before I decided to move on, not out of lack of desire, but of lack of necessity. I felt that God wanted me to pursue other areas.
With that said, I'm going to memorize the book of 1 Timothy (KJV). I started it a couple of days ago and so far, here is what I have from memory:
1 Ti 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ, by commandment of God our saviour and the Lord Jesus Christ, who is our hope.
I know, it isn't much, and it isn't 100% accurate but a gal has to start somewhere. Don't worry, I'm not going to bore you with this every day!! :D I chose 1 Timothy because it is very applicable to me in my current ministry roles. I can't wait to see how God blesses/changes me from it.
Now without further adieu, I will direct you to Kathleen Dalton, at her post "How to Memorize the Bible". I hope that you enjoy her teaching and thoughts as much as I.
