My Favourite Memory Verses

‘But this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the LORD; I will put My law in their minds, and write it on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people (Jeremiah 31:33).’

It’s good to commit to memory certain verses from the Bible, and I’ll tell you why.

God’s Word is your staple diet that nourishes (1 Timothy 4:6), *energises, strengthens, **comforts (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)  and gives direction (Psalm 119:105) to your life. When you are out and about, there may be pressing times. You may find yourself in a sticky situation, or you may have an opportunity to present the Gospel – it’s then you need your Bible to hand.

These days, many people have access to online Bibles through their mobile phone apps; but knowing key verses could make all the difference. If Scriptures flow spontaneously from your heart (Jeremiah 31:3), and you pray to God, He may bring about your desired outcome, according to His will (Luke 11:2; 1 John 5:14).

Anyway, I’m sure a number of you have your own favourite Bible verses that you commit to memory. Here are mine:

Psalm 23:1-3 ‘The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.’

Matthew 22:37, 38 ‘Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’’

Matthew 28:19, 20 ‘“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.

John 1:1, 2 ‘In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.’

2 Corinthians 5:21 ‘For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.’

Galatians 2:20 ‘I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.’

Galatians 5:22 ‘But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.’

Galatians 6:2 ‘Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.’

Ephesians 2:8, 9 ‘For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.’

Philippians 1:21 ‘For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.’

Philippians 4:6, 7 ‘Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplications, with thanksgiving, let your requests be known to God; and the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.’

Philippians 4:13 ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’

Colossians 3:11 ‘ ……. Christ is all and in all.’

Colossians 3:16 ‘Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.’
