Last Sunday morning, four ladies stood before the congregation and recited Psalm 62 from memory. A few weeks ago, a young husband and wife who have an active little son stood and recited 1 John 1 from memory. Recently, I watched a video of a pastor reciting Romans 1-8 from memory. It was so powerful! Here’s the link Romans 1-8, and I beg you to watch this video from about 29:10 to 51:55. In the past two years, I have seen my wife commit Philippians, Titus and James to memory. She is now working on Ephesians. Folks, this is remembering what’s really important. Check out Memorizing God’s Word. Do not let it overwhelm you. Start somewhere.
