Don’t bother memorizing Scriptures. All that does is store it in your mind. The mind is used by the natural man. You must be spiritual and in the Spirit in order to study the Bible, and therefore able to use the information it contains. The spirit-man uncovers truth, as Bible truth is only revealed to believers. The natural-man can read the Word, study the Word, take university courses on the Word, even achieve academic degrees on the Word, and all that work will not change anything.
I don’t remember the colors I used, but I do have a list of the ones Benny Hinn uses:
Red = promises
Green = prophecies
Purple = prayers
Yellow = important Scriptures
Brown = super important Scriptures
Blue = teaching
Orange = commands
- Week One: Romans 4:17-25
- Week Two: Romans 5:1-10
- Week Three: Romans 5:11-21
- Week Four: Romans 6:1-9
Each week follow this format:
- Day One: Read assigned verses to yourself three times.
- Day Two: Read the verses out loud three times.
- Day Three: Copy the verses into a notebook.
- Day Four: Write the assigned verses in your own words.
- Day Five: Taking into consideration all the verses you’ve read up to now, ask the Lord to choose one verse that He wants you to meditate on. Take that verse, meditate on it every day, and let it transform you to be more like the image of Jesus
Each day of this month ask the Lord what He wants you to do for someone else. Then do it for Him.
Keep a journal of what you’ve done in obedience and record the results.
