New year, new habits! January brings us a fresh start to a whole new year. Why not encourage your group members to memorize Scripture together in 2023? Each week a memory verse is identified in both the Leader Guide and QuickSource. This is a great tool for learning God’s Word. Your group can work on this together, offering encouragement and accountability for hiding God’s Word in our hearts.
Get this to your group members each week. Whether you use text, email, or social media to stay connected, anything will work! Send out the verse each week to let the group know what to memorize.
Invite group members to say it aloud from memory. Take a moment each week to invite volunteers to recite the verse aloud. This may take some getting used to, but it’s a great way to highlight the value you place on Scripture memorization. It’s also motivating!
Enlist someone to share how God has used that week’s verse in his or her life recently. Knowing God’s Word has benefits. Let your group members share (and hear!) about what God is teaching them through His Word.
God’s Word is our guide, giving us what we need to know each day to follow Him. Knowing and learning His Word equips us for a life of serving Him and growing in faith. Lead your group to memorize Scripture this year and be ready to see the fruit of planting His Word in our heart!
