By committing Bible verses to memory, God's Word becomes alive in our hearts.
I keep your word close, in my heart,so that I won’t sin against you. Psalm 119:11 (The Daily Life Bible)
I have a vivid memory of perching on a metal chair on a hot July night during vacation Bible school, chanting, “Without faith it is impossible to please God. Hebrews 11:1.” I got a sticker for my memorization skills.
At the time, I had no idea I was tucking away Scripture for further use.
