How to Memorize Scripture

Do you have difficulty memorizing Scripture? If so, try the following:

1. Ask God to give you a driving desire to memorize His Word.

2. Do a Bible study that stresses the benefits of knowing God's Word. For instance, explore what the Bible says about the importance of the Bible, the value of hiding it in your heart, meditating on it day on night, etc. To get started, try a resource such as Naves topical Bible.

3. Decide what to memorize. You might want to begin with a plan such as the Topical Memory System (NavPress). You can also select key verses from Bible studies, sermons, and quiet times.

4. Before you begin to memorize the verse, explain it in your own words. Make sure you understands its meaning. If you're struggling to understand the meaning, use a commentary, read the notes from a study Bible, or consult your pastor or another person well educated in the Bible.

5. Say the reference each time you repeat the verse, both at the beginning and the end. That way there will be one less person saying, "Somewhere in the Bible it says . . . "

6. Repetition is the most productive method for memorizing. Engage as many of the senses as you can. Read the verse out loud. Write it on an index card that you can carry with you. Sometimes it's helpful to write one phrase of the verse, or even one word, per card, like with flashcards. Once you have several verses under your belt, record them on a cassette tape that you can use for review. Which brings us to . . .

7. Review, review, review. Review a newly learned verse daily for six weeks. Then move the verse card into a weekly review box. After another six weeks, move that same verse card into a monthly review box. Set aside one month to review all the verses learned that year.
