Fighter Verses...What Are They?

We started a new program at church this morning called "Fighter Verses". It's a way for our entire church family to memorize Scripture together on a weekly basis. 

This is how it works:

  • Every Sunday morning a new verse will be assigned
  • We will memorize it during the following week
  • The next Sunday, we will ask for a volunteer to recite the verse from memory.
  • Then the entire congregation will recite it together as well. 
The Fighter Verses web site displays the entire, 5 year program. The verses are chosen and divided up according to theme and content. Our first set of verses concentrates on the character and nature of God.

We tried this out together during the service and found out how really easy it we used an easy verse, John 11:35...but it worked! Most folks are familiar with the verse but we all learned the Scripture reference as well. 


Our first verse, for next Sunday (Jan 15, 2011), is: 

Deuteronomy 7:9 “Know therefore that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God, who keeps His covenant and His lovingkindness to a thousandth generation with those who love Him and keep His commandments;

There are some great tips and tools offered on the web site. I just downloaded a really cool and helpful App for my iPad. They have one for Android as well. Unfortunately, I don't see one for Blackberry. 

The handiest tip I've seen, so far, has been to simply read the verse out loud 10 times a day. I timed it and this takes 2-3 minutes at most. It works!  

Let's do it!
