What is it about committing scripture to memory that is so important? In the technological culture we are coming up in where information is only a few clicks away, it is easy to fall into a dependence on electronics when we are in need of or seeking the counsel of God. How much better is it to have the words of the Father inscribed in our minds and hearts so deeply that they come to mind as easily as a thought or emotion? When a scriptural response to the events in life comes to us like a second nature, we are well on the way to being steeped in the will of the Father. 2 verses each week will enable you to have the Sermon on the Mount committed to memory by the end of the year. If you didn’t get started last week or miss a week or two along the way, 2 verses is very easy to make up. I hope you will join me as we rededicate ourselves to the discipline of memorization.
The Beattitudes begin the Sermon on the Mount by setting a tone that will not disappoint. Jesus flips not only the cultural norms but also the religious norms upside down as he delivers the truth about the Gospel, about his presence, and about God’s desire for mankind in the days to come.
Matthew 5:5-6 (HCSB)
5 The gentle are blessed,
for they will inherit the earth.
6 Those who hunger and thirst for righteousness are blessed,
for they will be filled.
Grace to you and peace from God, our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ,
