I have found a traveller who got further than me with memorizing Romans, and who I think used a different method as well (perhaps that’s why?!) but I love what he says on this post about Romans 8 and the chapters leading up, and I noticed, just like he did, how themes start and then resurface in the book in ways you just don’t notice if you are simply reading it.
I don’t think memorising is the ONLY way of enjoying the Word of God, but surely it has to be something we take seriously. There’s no other book like the Bible, after all. Is there anyone out there who has memorised 1 and 2 Samuel, or Jeremiah? That’s what I’d like to know….
