What About Memory Verses
What About Memory Verses in Journey? The Journey discipleship lessons start to talk about memory verses in Lesson Three. Of course before that time in every “Reflect and Transfer” and sections of the lesson the disciple is encouraged to memorize any verses that really stand out to them. That is a natural way and a more spiritual way to connect with the verse and bring them into their heart because it’s something that the Holy Spirit is pointing out to them.
In their Daily in the Word, the writings of the Word of God, they are encouraged that if any verses really jump off the page to commit them to memory. That is another very natural way to memorize the scripture and to hide it into their heart.
But in Lesson Three there are approximately 25 verses that they are asked to learn by the end of the Lessons, and that is not a lot of Bible verses, but they are all verses that are related to sharing the Gospel. Those are the only ones that we check up on.
There are some disciplers that are more strict about this and give more memory verses to their disciples, that is great, maybe their disciples are hungry for that but it is not something that is required in the lessons. It is something we know that the more a disciple gets into the Word of God, the more the Word of God they are going to want.
We encourage a lot of memorization, but we like it to be done in a natural way. It is key that every disciple be ready to witness at any time.
