Memorizing God's Word shapes our reflexes. The goal of memorization is to keep scripture fresh in our mind and heart, always striving to respond God's way in the face of unexpected challenges.
Meditation is at the heart of scripture engagement. As we receive God's Word in any manner, we have the opportunity to dwell on it, and allow it to sink deeply into our hearts. This opens us to the transforming power of Jesus.
