Last week, we began a challenge to memorize a verse a week. This week’s verse is Galatians 5:1.
“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.”
Here again is the step by step schedule for memorizing this scripture:
Monday: Read the verse five times
Tuesday: Write the verse down on a sheet of paper five times
Wednesday: Read the verse aloud and then close your eyes and repeat it. Do this five times
Thursday: Find a mirror and say your verse in front of a mirror. If you do not have a mirror, do something else physical that helps you remember the verse such as act it out or provide motions to it.
Friday: Try to recite it from memory five times without looking. If you can’t make it five times then do this pattern: read, write, close your eyes, mirror.
Saturday and Sunday: Test your long term memory. Anyone can remember a phone number for five minutes but can you remember it the next day? Use the Weekend to recite it from memory and meditate on the verse.
