Last year I took the opportunity to memorize scripture as part of Beth Moore's Siesta Scripture Memory Team. I was kinda hoping she'd do it, again... but it doesn't look that way. So, I figured I was on my own.
In studying Anonymous, Alicia Britt Chole reminds us that Jesus defeated temptation with Scripture. And we can, too! Well, except for the fact that we need to know Scripture before we can use it. We don't always have time to go to Biblegateway.com and do a search on "gluttony" or "usury" when faced with a temptation... so we need to be more familiar with the Scriptures so that we can use them.
Anyway, some of the gals who joined me for Anonymous said they'd be willing to come alongside me and memorize scripture... and we thought about you... and maybe you would like to join us, too?
I'll be using the same format I used last year with the Siesta Scripture Memory Team. 1st and 15th of each month. You can put your name and verse and Bible version. I'll add more details later... but I thought we'd better get started.
Here's my 1st Memory Verse for 2010:
I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.
I am choosing this verse because... well, it sums up using Scripture to defeat temptation. Feel free to use the same verse that I am memorizing.
Don't forget to put your name, verse, and if you want... even the reason you chose the verse in the comment.
Now I need to think of a cool name to call this... hmmm... any ideas?
