Luke 2:1-14

We memorized Luke 2:1-14 in the past couple of weeks. We weren't really working with Henry but just by listening in, he was able to memorize almost the entire passage. Why do we memorize scripture? Because 2 Timothy 3:16-17 says that, "All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work." Psalm 119:11 says, "I have stored up your word in my heart that I might not sin against you."
Deut 6 instructs parents to teach the Word of God to their children at all times. We cannot change their hearts, that is of the Lord, but as believing parents, we are called to be obedient to His word. We (children and adults included) should hide God's word in our heart. Hebrews 4:12 says, "For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart." May the Holy Spirit use the Word implanted in all of our hearts to make us more like Christ in all ways.
