Verse 14: Hiding 20 in 2012 Scripture Memory Challenge

This past April, I had surgery.  The surgeon I worked with was a confident fellow.  He had superior knowledge and skill that was commendable and provided peace of mind to this patient.  He used the tools of his trade effectively, and I am thankful for the outcome.

In his book Scripture by Heart: Devotional Practices for Memorizing God’s Word, Joshua Choonmin Kang compares the disciple seeking to memorize Scripture to a skilled surgeon: 

“A trustworthy surgeon has access

to a variety of surgical instruments

and knows the function of each.

The Word of God operates in much the same way;

it has the power to remove corruption

and treat the sickness” (p.77).

How about you?  Are you ready to effectively wield the tools God has provided in Scripture?  Let’s hold each other accountable by Hiding 20 in 2012.  In the comment section below, write out the verse you will be working on for the next two weeks. Make sure to include your first name, your home state, the verse’s address/location, and the Bible translation:

Lyli from Florida

“He  did not waver

at the promise of God through unbelief,

but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God.”

Romans 4:20, NKJV

Here’s a little play on words for all you Pinterest Fans. Rather than ‘Pin it,” let’s purpose to “Hide it.” I will end each post with a “Hide it” Suggested Verse.

“Hide it”:

 For I consider that the sufferings

of this present time

are not worthy to be compared with the glory

which shall be revealed in us.

Romans 8:18, NKJV
