So every since I posted the D&W Idea of the week about memorizing a verse a month I have been convicted to memorized God’s Word myself. I still advocate that our teens need to memorize scripture as it is my perception that this is a fading discipline in the church. That being said, I need to memorize scripture as well for my personal spiritual benefit as well as owning my responsibility and setting the pace for teens that I influence in my small group and the Youth Ministry at Northern Hills.
All of that to say, you should notice a new feature in the upper right hand corner of the Deep & Wide blog page entitled, “MEMORY VERSE FOR JUNE.” Each month I will provide a new memory verse and invite you to join me in memorizing that verse.
This month’s verse is Ezekiel 33:7, “Now, son of man, I am making you a watchman for the people of Israel. Therefore, listen to what I say and warn them for me.” It was inspired by today’s Dare 2 Share chapel that Greg share with our staff.
Beyond memorizing this scripture, my prayer is that I will heed the words of James and apply this to my life as well (James 1:22).
