How does scripture memory/meditation benefit the believer?

Growing Up

1. Meditation and memorization keep you from sin. “I have stored up Your Word in my heart, that I might not sin against You” (Psalm 119: 11).

2. Meditation and memorization transform your thinking. “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (Romans 12: 2).

3. Meditation and memorization equip you to share your testimony “But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3: 15).

4. Meditation and memorization provide direction for your life. “Your Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119: 105).

5. Meditation and memorization produce spiritual growth in your life. “And now I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and to give you the inheritance among all those who are sanctified” (Acts 20: 32).

6. Meditation and memorization equip you to fight temptation. “And the tempter came and said to him, ‘If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.’ But he answered, ‘It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God’” (Matthew 4: 3-4).
