  3. The Sword Of Truth Exhorts Us To Be Diligent At Memorizing Key Scriptures In The Bible (Ps. 119:11)

Challenges:

Am I consistently reading and applying God’s Word to my life?

Are their any areas in my life I am refusing to obey God’s Word?

Do I have key scriptures memorized?

When I am tempted or tested do I use scripture to defeat them?

Do I rely on God’s divine Word and power to live life?

The Bible contains the mind of God, the state of man, the way of salvation, the doom of sinners, and the happiness of believers.  Its doctrines are holy, its precepts are binding, its histories are true, and its decisions are immutable.

Read it to be wise, believe it to be safe, and practice it to be holy. It contains light to direct you, food to support you, and comfort to cheer you.

It is the traveler’s map, the pilgrim’s staff, the pilot’s compass, the soldier’s sword and the Christian’s charter.  Here too, Heaven is opened and the gates of Hell disclosed.

Christ is its grand subject, our good its design, and the glory of God its end.  It should fill the memory, rule the heart and guide the feet. Read it slowly, frequently and prayerfully.  It is a mine of wealth, a paradise of glory, and a river of pleasure.

It is given you in life, will be opened at the judgment, and be remembered forever.  It involves the highest responsibility, rewards the greatest labor, and will condemn all who trifle with its sacred contents.

You’ll see those words printed inside the Testaments distributed by The Gideons International.

Life should be lived like this: Yesterday is a cancelled check; we cannot negotiate it again. Tomorrow is a promissory note; it can’t be utilized until it arrives. Today is cash in hand; it must be invested. The psalmist expressed this way: “This is the day which the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it”. Look at this way: Faith is like a muscle…. it must be exercised. Faith is like a sunrise…. it is fresh every morning. (Quote from Charles Swindoll)
