The Gospel: The Power Behind Fighter Verses

The Fighter Verse Scripture memory plan is built on and powered by the belief that Jesus and his gospel are “the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16) —not only the power for the initial faith of conversion, but the power for the everyday Christian walk of faith. The Fighter Verses have been carefully selected—52 passages per year for five years (260 total)—to arm us for the fight for faith and love, and against unbelief and sin.

While the whole Bible is indeed both about Jesus and “profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” our team has chosen the passages that we sensed would be most helpful in fighting for faith in God, his Son, and his gospel, as well as against particular sins and unbelief. The passages fall into three major categories: 1) those that fix our attention on God, his power, and his compassion toward us who believe; 2) those that arm us for the battle against specific sins; and 3) those that turn our attention to the person and gospel work of Jesus where the strength for faith, and defeating sin, most powerfully flows.

The Extended Memory Set is designed for those who wish to memorize longer passages of Scripture. Still structured as a five-year program, this set will walk you through memorizing large segments of or whole New Testament epistles, the Sermon on the Mount, etc.

Legacy Set

The Legacy Set is the original Fighter Verse collection as it was released in 1997, focusing on the fight of faith. Along with a number of short passages, this collection also includes the Sermon on the Mount (as the fifth year). The Legacy Set will be available for order through 2011.

Foundation Verses

Foundation Verses are strategically chosen Bible verses for children preschool through age five. The pack includes verses designed to lay a firm scriptural foundation of basic Biblical truth that will pave the way for faith response.
