Memorizing The Sermon on the Mount - A Printable Schedule-

 7.11.12

My friend Lisa left a comment on yesterday's post saying, "I'm crazy enough to join you but I'm also crazy enough to require lots of helps!" Well, here it is, to all my crazy friends, a simple schedule for you to print (I have no idea how to make pretty graphics with my computer, so I just took my markers, my journal, and my camera. If you come up with a prettier one and would like to share it with us, email it to me, and I will share it with everyone else).







Beside the weekly verses I added some boxes to put a check on the verses that I have already memorized. These little boxes will also help me to make my schedule a bit more flexible and don't lose track of my progress. For example, this week I want to memorize all the beatitudes (Mt. 5:1-12), instead of only the first 9 verses of Mt 5, which means that I can check a few more boxes from the next weekly verses (I'd rather be ahead than behind before Christmas comes).

If you prefer a -somehow- more relaxed schedule, you can easily divide these chapters in 21weeks as follows:

Week 1: The Beautitudes (Mt 5:1-12)
Week 2: Salt and Light (Mt. 5: 13-16)
Week 3: Christ Came to Fulfill the Law (Mt.5: 17-20)
Week 4: Anger (Mt. 5: 21-26)
Week 5: Lust (Mt 5: 27-30)
Week 6: Divorce (Mt. 5:31-32)
Week 7: Oaths (Mt. 5:33- 37)
Week 8: Retaliation (Mt. 5: 38-42)
Week 9: Love Your Enemies (Mt. 5: 43-48)
Week 10: Giving to the Needy (Mt. 6: 1-4)
Week 11: The Lord's Prayer (Mt. 6: 5-15)
Week 12: Fasting  (Mt. 6: 16-18)
Week 13: Lay Up Treasures in Heaven (Mt.6:19- 24)
Week 14: Do Not Be Anxious (Mt. 6: 25-34)
Week 15: Judging Others (Mt. 7:1-6)
Week 16: Ask, And It Will Be Given (Mt.7:7-11)
Week 17: The Golden Rule (Mt. 7: 12-14)
Week 18: A Tree and Its Fruit (Mt. 7:15-20)
Week 19: I Never Knew You (Mt. 7:21-23)
Week 20: Build Your House on the Rock (Mt. 7: 24-27)
Week 21: The Authority of Jesus (Mt. 7: 28-29)

How will we keep each other accountable? What if we meet here every Friday to share how we are doing? If you have a blog and decide to post about your progress every week feel free to link to it.

I will also be posting every Lord's Day a prayer based on the weekly verses (instead of my regular Praying the Psalms series), because I have found that one of the most wonderful benefits of memorizing the Scriptures is that you can use them more effectively, as a sword in the hand of a warrior in your prayer time.



So here we go, Sisters...  May God bless our minds and hearts.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
