For Christians, one of the most important spiritual disciplines of all is committing Scripture to memory. It’s essential to the Christian life. Jesus said, “Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matthew 4:4, ESV). The psalmist wrote, “How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word” (Psalm 119:9, ESV).
Clearly, memorizing Scripture matters. But it’s also one of the most neglected disciplines.
If you’re like me, then two things are true for you. You know you need to memorize Scripture. But you also have a lot of trouble doing that.
I mean, seriously, memorizing Bible verses is hard.
And I know what pastors say because I’m a pastor. They say, “How many lyrics do you know? How many movie lines can you quote? If you can do that, then surely you can memorize Bible verses! And what’s more important?”
I get that. And it’s true. Memorizing God’s word is far more beneficial to me than memorizing the lyrics to the latest pop song or one-liners from the newest comedy flick.
But let’s be honest. It’s hard.
A new tool for memorizing Scripture
But what if it didn’t have to be so difficult? What if there was a tool that could make committing Scripture to memory easy for you? What if there was a way to simplify the whole thing so that you could learn it and retain it and be changed by it?
Well that’s what I’ve found in Verses.
Why is verses a game changer?
Well first of all it incorporates a variety of memory games to help you ABSORB, MEMORIZE and RECALL passages of Scripture.
So…it’s engaging. It’s fun. It’s easy.
I’m not kidding you. I sat down for ten minutes playing games with Proverbs 29:27, and before I knew it I had the verse memorized.
What’s even better is that Verses tracks your progress. So you know how well you have a handle on any passage of Scripture.
And once some time passes by, your progress decreases so you know to refresh your memory and give the passage another shot.
In other words, it challenges you to continually commit the passage to memory.
You can memorize passages on your own or with your friends.
They have several translations available including KJV, ESV, NIV, NLT and more. They even have the Reina Valera translation for all my spanish-speaking friends.
Listen. If you’re like me, you know memorizing the Bible is important. But you probably didn’t know it could be easy and fun. But it is. Check out Verses today!
