I have had the privilege of hearing John Piper talk about his process of Scripture memory. He works hard at it. And it pays off.
I found this video from a message years ago. In the full sermon, he actually quotes Scripture for the first 15 minutes of his message. This clip shows him giving reasons why Scripture memory is so important.
Warning: he is very calm, and then at the 1:53 mark, you think he is going to come through the screen and peer into your soul.
But trust me, it’s worth it. Enjoy the video, and then pick out the first verse you are going to work on memorizing today.
