Falling in Love with HIStory: How to Make the Bible Come Alive (Part II)

From Pastor Len Harper at South Brandon Worship Center

2. Memorize the Bible Regularly!!

Ps. 119:11 “I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.”

Someone told the Pastor this verse will help him.  They said that this verse will keep him from sin; or sin will keep him from this verse.

Thus, 1) memorize the Word of God and carry it with you where ever you go.  It is like a smart phone in your head.  2) it gives you the ability to share it with others.

There is no need for you to force it on others.  Live it and they will ask.  From Hebrews 4:12, we know that the Word of God is living and active.  Something in them will come alive.

In sharing your faith, are you familiar with verses that can lead someone to Christ?  Are you familiar with the Romans Road?

Rom. 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

Rom. 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

Rom. 10:13 “for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

By memorizing the Bible, we are able to share it fluidly with others.

The Bible will change you. In the same way they say, garbage in, garbage out; good things in good things out.
