I remember I used to apply Navigators' Topical System to commit selected scriptures into memory but somehow I defaulted and did not have the discipline to persevere.
The Topical Memory System Kit (TMS), developed by The Navigators. is aimed to improve your knowledge of the Bible, deepen your walk with God, and memorize verses that will carry you through the hard times of life.
This kit includes:
I find that having the workbook together for me to work through the scriptures are incredibly useful. It makes the scriptures come alive! It helps me to reflect and think through. It helps me to apply the scriptures in real life situations.
- 60 verse cards in the NIV, NASB, MSG, ESV, NRSV, NLT, NKJV, and KJV
- course workbook
- verse card holder
To give an example, for Week 1 Series A (Live the New Life), the verses to memorize are 2 Cor 5:17 and Galatians 2:20.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV)
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (Gal 2:20 NIV)And the questions for meditation for 2 Corinthians 5:2
- What is the key to living a truly new life?
- What has happened to your "old" life?
- What things have changed in your life since you became a Christian?
