Recognize God’s Grace
Being able to memorize and apply Scripture to our lives is no small accomplishment. Only God can give us the grace to long for His Word, hide it is our hearts, and use it in our lives. When someone has a testimony of how God has used Bible memory in his life, be sure that the encouragement is shared with others who are trying to memorize.
- Set up a church e-mail address and invite participants to share encouraging stories about how God has been at work in the lives of his people through Bible memory.
- If your church has a newsletter, dedicate a corner of your newsletter to Bible memory. Print the Fighter Verse for the week and, if available, a short testimony from your church on how God has been using Bible memory in His people. (See Fighter Verses Testimonies.)
- If your church does a Fighter Verse kickoff at the beginning of the year, ask for volunteers to share their testimonies of how God has used Bible memory in their lives.
- When appropriate, include a Bible memory testimony in your Sunday morning worship service or Wednesday evening gathering.
