“Never does a man hear the gospel but he either rises or falls under that hearing. There is never a proclamation of Jesus Christ (and this is the spiritual coming forth of Christ himself) which leaves men precisely where they were; the gospel is sure to have some effect upon those who hear it.”

Have you tried memorizing Bible verses before? If you have and have run into problems, let me suggest a product called Memlok (the website can be found at www.Memlok.com) and it is great! Now I am in my forties, and if I can do it, anyone can. The idea is that if you can get started, then you have a much better chance of remembering the verse. So it gives you a simple picture and from the picture you should be able to get started. Here is an example: a face that is drooling. Can you guess how Acts 4:12 starts?
"Salvation is found in no one else. For there is no other name found under heaven, by which we must be saved." The hint helps by making me think of salivating (ok, sometimes they are silly hints). But they work! The program is simple enough that my 4 year old son was able to memorize some verses, and even an old fogy like me had 75 verses in a year and a half. If you have 5 minutes a day, you can memorize some great verses. Give it a try!
