What was the last Bible verse you memorized? Do you ever marvel at people who can recite verses on the spot?
YOU can memorize a Bible verse in 5 minutes!
We proved this in service a few weeks ago when I led the congregation through repeating a verse
several times, adding emphasis in certain spots, and even a hand motion or 2! Almost everyone memorized Joshua 1:9 in minutes!!!
There are 20 verses we will commit to memory as a church – adults, youth and children. Today is a great day for YOU to get started!

5 Tips to Memorize Quickly!
- Print out the verses and leave a copy on the kitchen table
- Read the verse 3x – each time you read, add emphasis/expression with your voice on different words or phrases.
For example, when we read Joshua 1:9, I had everyone say, “Have I not commanded you?” like a teacher would say to students. From then on everyone remembered that part and even recite with that same expression!
- Write the verse 1x on a piece of scrap paper.
- Now try to say the verse from memory – glancing at the paper only if you have to. Do this 3x.
- Try to recite it 1x from memory without looking!
YOU CAN DO THIS!
