WHY

We believe there is no more important book in the world than the Word of God because within it we find the words of God. Do you want to know what God is like and what has He done throughout history? Look to His Word. Wonder who we are and what we were created for? Look to His Word. God’s Word is living and abiding (1 Peter 1:23); by it we are we born again, and by it we grow up into salvation (1 Peter 2:2)! David teaches us that blessed is that man whose delight is in the law of the Lord (Psalm 1:2); that we are to love it, walk in it, and as we store it in our hearts we learn to not sin against God (Psalm 119:1, 11).

We see that God’s Word is not merely information about Him, but that God’s Word must bear a functional authority in our lives! We want God’s words to find a home in us (John 15:7) and to transform us by His Spirit so that we’re equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16). How do we do this? Through memorization & meditation.

HOW

Though we might agree that memorization & meditation are important disciplines, they are much easier talked about than carried out practically in our busy rhythms of life. People start the journey of memorization off strong, but after 2 or 3 weeks, that gusto is often lost. Verses Project intends to make memorization and meditation sustainable, accessible, and even joyful. Every week, we pick a memory verse and post a song to help you hear and sing God’s Word; we post artwork to save on your mobile device, desktop, or for your wall so that you might not only hear it, but also constantly see it, be reminded of it, and treasure it; finally, we post a devotional blog to help you think on and engage with the text.

If you want to join us on this journey, please sign up on our mailing list (see at the bottom of the page). Our prayer is that you, your friends, family, and community will be saturated in God’s Word by this project. That not only will you memorize & meditate on it, but that you would delight in it and by changed by it. That of us would be spoken the same words Charles Spurgeon spoke of John Bunyan: “Prick him anywhere - his blood is bibline, the very essence of the Bible flows from him.”

"I will meditate on your precepts and fix my eyes on your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word." (Psalm 119:15-16)
