Scripture Memory at Emmaus

Hello Emmaus,

Just a quick reminder that our scripture memory for the week is 2 Timothy 3:16 which says, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness.” The children will have an opportunity to recite this verse in front of the congregation this week just like we did last week.

The idea here is that young and old memorize scripture together, and that parents teach their children this discipline within the home. Please, do not let your children memorize scripture without helping them to understand what it means and how it should change their lives. It is a very dangerous thing to pack a young persons mind full of scripture, and then to send them off into adulthood thinking they “know” the Bible, when in fact, they don’t understand it. Scripture should be memorized, understood, and applied; anything less is potentially destructive. The scriptures should be stored up in the mind, but it also needs to sink down into our hearts where it can truly transform us.
