Scripture Memory Monday

Our Womens Bible Study is going through the book of Ephesians; we also decided to memorize scripture as part of our study of Gods word. Since we are already working in the book of Ephesians, this seemed to be a great place to begin. Since I am very undisciplined in this area, I thought that I would make Mondays, Scripture Memory Mondays. It will help me to be ready for Tuesday night Bible study and also maybe even encourage others to begin memorizing scripture too.

It doesn't have to be the book of Ephesians, it could be any book , chapter or even verse. It is so important for us to be intimate with Gods living Word. We cannot live without it. I'll have a few more things to share about Memorizing Scripture, but I'll talk about that another time. First lets get to it; Here is where I am:

Ephesians 1
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,
4 even as he chose us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love
5 he predestined us or adoption as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will,
6 to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.

*7 In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses according, to the riches of his grace

I am adding verse *7 this week. It has been a blessing to read over God's word like this. Each time I say it, I pause to let it really sink in. The more you do it the more life changing it becomes.
