Weekly Scripture Passage 27 Oct 08

Ephesians 1:7-14

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight making known [3] to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.

11 In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, 12 so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory. 13 In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit, 14 who is the guarantee [4] of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it, [5] to the praise of his glory.

Scripture Memory Challenge

I have decided to get serious about memorizing scripture.  I have never really developed the discipline.  The other day I came across the following blog post on the ESV.org blog while checking out their new study bible (which is incredible if you have seen it yet -go here).   I would like to share the blog with you and some other helpful resources.  

Here is the initial blog post that I read:

Listen to this excellent interview of Dr. Andy Davis:

He also preached on this subject at a recent Founders Conference which is very helpful:

I will be posting on my memorization experience over the next 26 weeks.
