In his book Scripture by Heart: Devotional Practices for Memorizing God’s Word, Joshua Choonmin Kang explains that memorizing Scripture helps foster a heart for evangelism:
“Sharing the Gospel with an inquirer
inevitably involves some measure of presentation,
persuasion and defense.
In each of these a background of Scripture memorization
gives us versatility in our dialogue” (P.89).

Here’s a little play on words for all you Pinterest Fans. Rather than ‘Pin it,” let’s purpose to “Hide it.” I will end each post with a “Hide it” Suggested Verse.
Put on the whole armor of God,
that you may be able to stand
against the schemes of the devil.
Ephesians 6:11, ESV
