Bible Memory Verses and Meditation – What’s the Difference?

Holy book verses memorization is very common in the modern Chapel. It’s in Sunday Institution, on web services, in emails, flashcards, and probably any other place you can think to put a verse. The question is: Is it effective? aprenda a bíblia

Maybe you are — or were — like me. I thought I had been a bad Christian. My spouse and i had lots of Holy bible stories going swimming, even a few key passages, but I could never remember them exactly right. 

I might say something like, “Present yourselves a living sacrifice, that you… right… are acceptable to Our god… and… eh… prove Him worthy. ” However I’ve work at it, read and study more, and i also would get better at remembering the verses, but might have trouble remembering book, chapter, and verse.

Then I would say, “Oh, I know them well, I just don’t know their current address. ”

At that time, I was a Christian for about doze years. My pal, a veritable toddler in the beliefs (2 years, ) was quoting scriptures until this individual was blue hard. Actually, I was jealous.

Gowns where my heart was. I wanted to learn Bible Memory Verses just to prove I recognized something, gain recognition, show I was a ‘man of God. ‘

Today, I haven’t arrived yet, but I have definitely left. I realized my attitude was wrong and started out looking at this whole idea of memory passages. What does the Holy bible say? Well, it really doesn’t say much about memorizing verses. There are a few verses that may be interpreted into memorizing, but I would go a step further. We are not merely to memorize passages, but to focus intently on them, think on them, rehearse them in our minds and paper hearts, and chew into it like a cow chewing it is cud; getting every previous bit of nourishment.

Therefore, what’s the difference between memorizing and meditating? What might seem to be like a tiny matter could make a huge difference in your daily life.

God told the Israelites make scripture essential for their life:

“These best practices that we give you today are to be after your hearts. Impress them on your children. Converse about them when you sit at home and when you walk over the road, when you lay down and when you get up. Link them as symbols on your hands and hole them on your foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your homes and your gates. very well – Deut. 6: 6 to 9 (NIV)
The first teaching on meditation occurs in Joshua 1: 8. Our god tells Joshua that this individual is (we are) to meditate on the e book of what the law states day and night. Why? “That you may well be careful to do everything written in it. Then you definitely will be prosperous and successful. ” (NIV) The term meditate is the Hebrew word ‘Hagah’ (Strong’s H1897) which means to mumble, mutter, utter or speak. God tells Joshua, “You want to fill Moses shoes, then think about and speak about what is written nighttime and daytime. Certainly, even the book of Numbers. ”

Then again, David writes, “[The blessed man’s] pleasure with the law of the LORD, and his law he meditates day and night. ” (Psalm 1: 2 NIV emphasis mine)
