Bible Memorization

There is a reason why memorizing Bible verses is an essential part of a balanced devotional life.

If you wish to be effective in using the scriptures in order to share God's perspective with others, you have to know what He has said, and where He has said it. Half-remembered bits of verses are not good enough. As Eve found out in Genesis ch.3, incomplete recall of God's words not only gives ground for confusion, but can be exploited by the enemy.

The Holy Spirit has been promised to help us recall God's word when we face confrontation - but this does not absolve us from the responsibility to get the word inside us first. Our role model in this respect is Jesus, who demonstrated ably in Luke ch.4 why recalling precisely what God has said is an essential tool in spiritual warfare.
