Bethlehem Baptist Church has a unique and very helpful Bible memory program. The whole church works together on one "Fighter Verse" each week. They have several free resources on their website about these. They also sell the program to use in your church. If you don't have a plan to meditate and memorize scripture then "Fighter Verses" are a great place to start. Here is a clip from their website:
What Are Fighter Verses?I want to encourage parents to use this system both personally and with their family. The verse selection is perfect for family worship, God-centered teaching moments in the car or any opportunity to point your children toward Christ. I'm adding the Fighter Verse feed to my sidebar and children's ministry aggregator.
Fighter Verses are short passages of Scripture which we as a church have chosen to memorize each week. The Scripture, day after day, reveals to us the greatness of all that God is for us in Christ so that by the power of the Spirit we find our joy in him and the ways of sin become distasteful -- indeed ugly and repugnant.
I would be interested to know if people outside of Bethlehem are using this program. Just leave a comment and let me know. I use some at my church but we have not instituted a church wide program yet. I do want to start using Fighter Verses consistently with my family.
Next week I will begin a regular post explaining and offering a short devotion on the new fighter verse. So be sure to subscribe to "Will The Next Generation Treasure Christ?" by email. This will deliver all our new content directly to your inbox.
