Scripture Memory Team: Verse Eight.


Come on girls!  Don't loose steam.  We can do this.

I went back and re-read what Beth Moore had to say about memorizing scripture and it's got me excited all over again.

*We call this a Scripture memory “team” because that’s exactly what we are. We’re a really long line of women standing shoulder to shoulder with our swords drawn. (For you newcomers, Ephesians 6 calls the Word of God the “Sword of the Spirit.”) And we don’t draw our swords to wound people, to convict our family members (God’s job) or to cut off the ears of our hearers. We draw our swords to fight the good fight of faith. While I was saw stacks and stacks of Siesta Scripture Memory Spirals being stuffed into envelopes for shipping, it hit me with fresh impact. What if thousands of women really did memorize 24 Scriptures in 2013?? What are the implications of that? What kind of repercussions might that have in our personal lives and our homes? That’s worth getting riled up over. SO, you bet this is a team. Don’t be too cool for it. Remember, God’s Spirit is a fire. If we’re too cool, we can’t help but quench it. If cheesy works around here, we’re not ashamed. Just throw in a can of jalapenos and grab a tortilla chip.
Yeah!  That's right.  We are standing shoulder to shoulder with swords drawn to fight the good fight of faith.  I love that!

This verse is one of our corporate verses that we're trying to memorize together.

For He is the living God, and steadfast forever;  His kingdom is the one which shall not be destroyed, and His dominion shall endure forever.
                                                                                              Daniel 6:26b

Alright ladies, let's at the very least write this verse down daily for the next two weeks.  It will only take moments out of your day and I think you'll be surprised at how well you know this verse by the end of the month.

What do you say?
