Welcome to the online home of The Figure 8 Scripture Memory by Meditation System. The purpose of this site is to equip you to write the word of God upon your heart more effectively than ever before. The Figure 8 System is a valuable tool for memorizing Scripture and growing your relationship with Jesus Christ. The Figure 8 approach to memorizing Scripture is based upon principles found in Psalm 119, where the Psalmist wrote, “I will meditate on Your precepts, and regard Your ways. I shall delight in Your statutes; I shall not forget Your word” (Psalm 119:15-16). Notice that the keys to remembering Scripture are to meditate and delight in God’s Word.
There are four principles in The Figure 8 Scripture Memory System. Here they are:
1. Meditation: The first principle in this system is to meditate on Scripture. Decide which chapter or passage of the Bible you want to remember and print off the memory sheets. Read the chapter slowly and thoughtfully 8 times per day for 8 days. You will be amazed by how the Holy Spirit will use your focus throughout the day to write His word on your heart.
2. Memorization: Next, work to memorize the Starter Phrases that are listed on the back of the printable memory sheets. Memorizing the first few words of each verse will help you remember the order of verses and recall specific verses from memory. To get the most out of the Starter Phrases, read the section of this site that is about Memorization.
3. Disciplined Study: As you meditate on and memorize God’s word, studying the Scriptures will boost your understanding and memory. A simple way to do this is to divide the passage you are memorizing into 8 pieces. Use of a commentary or study Bible to learn about one piece of the passage each day of your 8-day meditation schedule.
4. Testing Out: Before moving on to a new chapter or passage, test out by reciting what you’ve memorized to a friend or Scripture memory partner.
