If I had to choose between all the spiritual disciplines

willard on memorization

Bible memorization is absolutely fundamental to spiritual formation. If I had to choose between all the disciplines of the spiritual life, I would choose Bible memorization, because it is a fundamental way of filling our minds with what it needs. This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth. That’s where you need it! How does it get in your mouth? Memorization.

  1. Thanks for this series. I have just recently rediscovered my faith. I look forward to memorizing some verses to assist me on my walk with God.

    1. Rebecca I’m so happy for your rediscovery of faith and I’m grateful for your presence here. Praying that God will continue to draw you closer to him each day! Please feel free to reach out any time if there’s anything I can do to help out.
