Memorizing Colossians – September Encouragement

Some great links to visit this month to encourage you on your journey in memorizing God’s Word. I love that reminder – we are not just memorizing words from a page but the very Words of God!!
Nancy Leigh DeMoss has a great series with Nancy Epperson on hiding God’s Word in your heart. They are all free to read or listen to online:

Review Colossians 3

After work women came to religious prisoners and asked, even begged, to be told something of what we remembered from the Bible. [This was while they were in prison.] The words gave hope, comfort, and life. We had no Bible. We hungered for it more than bread. [When you don’t have it, you really do hunger for it.]
How I wished I had learned more of it by heart, but we repeated daily those passages we knew and at night also when we held vigils for prayer. Other Christians, like me, had deliberately committed long passages to memory knowing that soon their turn would come to a rest. They brought riches to prison.
Sabina Wurmbrand from her autobiography The Pastor’s Wife

  1. Oh Marci, this is just so wonderful!! So encouraging!! I have read down through two of the transcripts from the interview with Nancy Epperson and it has just given me the hope that I CAN memorize and the tenacity to ‘just do it!’

    Thank you for posting this.
