Scripture memorisation is a holy habit that has huge benefits for every believer! Then, why don’t we do more of it? There are several reasons. We’ve never really become convinced of its value. The routine has never been established. It feels too BIG. And, we just don t know the techniques of memorising that make it easier.
When we do memorise scripture, we usually get it into our short-term memory, but never move it to long-term memory. This book offers help and encouragement to get started, or to get back into the habit. It is divided into three main sections:
– Part 1 gives 14 keys to memorisation, including why we memorise scripture and methods of memorisation
– Part 2 includes games and activities for exploring the Scriptures, reviewing passages, recalling Scriptures, and reviewing multiple verses.
– Part 3 provides an outline, along with lesson plans, for an intensive six-week programme where you memorise large portions of scripture.
Whether you’re leading the children at church in scripture memorisation, doing it as a personal discipline, or including it as part of family worship, the games, outlines, lesson plans, memorisation techniques, and ways to explore the passage to gain understanding are all packaged in this one-of-a-kind resource.
Let’s learn how to hide God’s Word in our hearts for the long haul! Methods have been tested by the author in children s ministry settings. An ideal resource for children’s ministry, personal study or family worship.
