Hiding Passages in Their Heart

Our family has been working on memorizing the first chapter of Ephesians for a looooong time.  Although we are lacking consistency, we recognize the benefits and blessings of memorizing whole passages instead of individual verses.  While individual verses will still have a place in our family memorizing, we will continue to work on entire passages.  We might take a break from Ephesians and work on other passages.

I found this list off of Family Reformation and thought to post some of their suggestions here:

Bible Passages for Memorizing

Psalms 1, 8, 19, 23, 24, 34, 100

Exodus 20:1-17, Ten Commandments

Joshua 1:7-9, meditate on the book

Proverbs 8:22-31, wisdom speaks (Christ himself)

Proverbs 15:1-6, soft answer

Isaiah 53:1-6 (or the whole chapter), Man of sorrows

Matthew 5:3-12, Beatitudes

Matthew 5:19-24, treasures in Heaven

Luke 2:1-7 (or to 16 or 20), Christmas story

John 1:1-14, the Word became flesh

John 3:14-18, God so loved the world

John 14:1-4 (or to 14), mansions in the Father’s house

Romans 1:14-15 (or to 20 or farther), not ashamed of the Gospel

I Corinthians 13, love

Ephesians 2:8-10, saved by grace

Philippians 4:4-8, rejoice

James 1:22-25, doers of the Word

    Julie…Thanks for posting this! We need to get back to working on longer passages, and this list has given me some really good ideas.
