How brilliant is that!
I find memorising scripture to be so useful and important, it’s just unfortunate that I a)don’t put much effort into it and b)am a bit rubbish at it. I’m always challenged by the story of Ezekiel who eats the scroll and literally consumes God’s words, which is “as sweet as honey to him”.
I’m not going to go trying to eat my Bible but I think I’m going to make a renewed effort and using Desiring God’s brilliant resource FighterVerses. One a week, plus sixty Greek words, shouldn’t be too much of an effort!
