Hebrews 4:12
For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

 
I was laughing the other day hearing my son quote word for word several lines in a movie. It’s a hobby of his, and he’s quite gifted in reciting movie lines. Most of us can come up with a couple of movie lines, but why do you think that is something we enjoy? The answer is that we all enjoy what is familiar. We like it when we recognize a quote, a line, or famous saying. See if you recognize the following famous movie quotes…..

It’s interesting to me how fascinated we are in quoting movie scripts as well as song lyrics. Wouldn’t it be amazing, if as many people who could quote a famous line in a movie or a lyric in a Top 40 music hit could quote Scripture as effectively? Imagine the power in that!
  
I have spoken to people who say that they have trouble memorizing Scripture. How do we memorize movie lines and songs? We play them over and over. We learn by repetition. In fact, my friend Jerry has amused his friends on facebook by quoting famous 80’s lyrics in his status update. He will start a line in a song, and a series of replies by his friends are posted with the rest of the song. Some of the songs he has posted are not highly favored by some, and it never fails for someone to claim, “Thanks, now I am going to have that song in my head for days.”
 
Same concept people. If we study the LIVING WORD OF GOD….if we were to experiment with repetition….Scripture would be so easy to claim in any given circumstance. We could call upon the verse and claim it in Jesus Name……and POWER would PREVAIL. There’s nothing more powerful than speaking the Word of God! His Word never returns void!
Bible 1 
How do you think hymns and worship songs were/are written? They are taken from the Holy Word. So, if you don’t think you have memorized Scripture, well, think again …if you know any worship music or have dedicated to your memory any classic hymns, you have memorized some of Scripture.
Singer 3 
The most active piece of the Armor of God that we can utilize is the Bible – The Sword of the Spirit. Try it…….you just might get hooked! If you need some help determining a daily reading plan, go to the following link where you can pull up the One Year Bible that we use at Church of the Highlands. It includes a portion of the Old Testament, a portion of the New Testament, a Psalm, and a Proverb as well as a mini devotional to tie it all together.
 
IF YOU ARE HUNGRY, THEN EAT!
CHEW ON THIS….
FEED ON THE LIVING WORD OF GOD….
THE ONLY BREAD THAT TRULY SATISFIES ETERNALLY!
