The Right Attitude
A reader recently wrote this in the comments section of one of my blogs: “Meanwhile, I suggest we start memorizing Scripture like never before. Then, when the Bibles are burned, we will have the Word of God still burning in our hearts.”

If believers knew for certain our Bibles were going to be confiscated, we should indeed begin memorizing large chunks of Scripture, and, I would add, reading the Bible in ample portions. This is the right attitude, and my blogger friend nailed it.

  1. Thanks for sharing this, Stu.
    We have a vibrant Pastor, on fire for God and His Word. He spent some years ministering in India. One time he was to enter a building, but he was not allowed to bring his Bible in. He had to leave it behind. He said, at that time, God specifically told him to mark this in his heart: memorize Scripture because you will have times when you will not be able to have a Bible with you. He did take that to heart, and has memorized large portions. He so loves God’s Word!
