Do you memorize Scripture on a regular basis?
I don’t memorize Scripture now as much as I did when I was younger. I don’t know why except maybe we think we are too busy. But having this question asked me makes me realize it doesn’t matter how old you are or how busy you are - we all need to memorize more and more scripture.
What is your favorite verse or verses?
My favorite verse is Philippians 4:13
What method do you use when memorizing Scripture?
The method I use is repetition – repetition – repetition. I also like the idea of teaching children and grandchildren; and by teaching them, we learn as well.
How has memorizing God’s Word changed you?
Memorizing Scripture for sure has changed me. When many times I need a word from God, I think back to a scripture that I learned and I apply it to the situation. Also, I realize more and more that I can’t make it day to day without the Lord and learning the scriptures. I would love to have more scriptures memorized, and it’s up to me to do it. We have time for what is really important to us and God’s Word should be a top priority.
This week, we are focusing on the middle part of 1Corinthians 13:4 “… love does not brag and is not arrogant …” In light of your success with the Faith Radio network, how do you keep yourself from appearing arrogant or boastful?
I pray that I never appear arrogant or boastful about Faith Radio because I know God gets all the glory for what has been done or will be done in the future. I could fail today and I know that. That’s why I asked our listeners to pray for us every day that God will help me and the staff to be used as clean vessels for him.
Is there anything else you would like to add regarding memorizing or meditating on Scripture?
I like the idea of having a “quiet time.” I am the type of person who usually has “noise” going on. But, when it is quiet I seem to be focused more on what God has for me for that day.
