and this year it is
The Jesus Project. #theJesusproject.
Scripture Memorization for the Rest of Us: The Jesus Project. We’d memorize the Soul Sustaining Words of Jesus. From the Gospel of John.
We’d start with just 24 verses (or you could choose just 12 of the 24) — all that would be rendered artistically, to make us see Beautiful in the Words of God. It would sort of be like this — ”More Than Useful: He is Beautiful” Memory Prints… 24 verses that would chronologically unpack across the Gospel of John. We’ll memorize at least one verse from every chapter in the Gospel of John. Sometimes several verses from each chapter.
Over the year, we’ll offer another free download of “More Than Useful: He is Beautiful” Memory Prints. Or maybe two sets, offered later in the year? So the community could memorize 1 set of 24 verses… or 2 sets — 48 verses from the Gospel of John. Or 3 sets — 72 verses? All The Beautiful Words of Jesus…This works for us. Remember we are FREE in Jesus and this may not work for everyone but that is O.K. For so many years I was enslaved to "I have to do this, or I have to do that," and when I didn't I thought.... "I failed, I failed, I failed."
That is not how this life of LOVING Jesus is about.
Let me tell you a secret.....
we didn't finish the Roman's Project...... oh and the kids did well but they lost me after .... are you ready..... only about 10 verses.....
same thing with the Sermon on the Mount.....
oh, and Colossians too......
"I failed, I failed, I failed...."
That is not how this life of LOVING Jesus is about......
The Light shines in the darkness and the darkness has not over come it.
