"Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God. (Colossians 3:16)" Paul stresses the importance of scripture memory, to not only memorize God's Word, but to walk with Christ and encourage others with His Word.

The continuing of this verse encourages a deep level of intimacy within the believers' community... teach one another, admonish one another in all wisdom; sing together; be thankful together in your hearts to God. We need community. We need one another. It's the desire that God has created within us. When we first dwell in Christ, His love is an outpour - an overflow - into our communities. We are called to let the words of Christ dwell in us richly as a life-giving command for ourselves but also as a life-giving command for others. His words dwell in us and in return, pour out from our lips as truth to another as a form of accountability, love, wisdom and worship.

This is dwelling.

This is community.

This is worship.

So let's join in community together and memorize God's Word this year! We are so thrilled to release this free printable of 52 scripture memory verses for 2017. While this printable was created to supplement the Jitney's 2017 Agenda, we encourage anyone and everyone to use this as a free resource for scripture memory.

While you are welcome to use this printable however you'd like, here's what we had in mind when designing it: Each weekly verse begins on a Monday; therefore, week 1 begins on January 2. This resource was designed to help you dive into scripture. Don't stop at memorizing the verses; meditate on them and ask God to speak to you through them. Seek opportunities to encourage other believers throughout the week by speaking the truths you're learning.

How do you memorize scripture? Index cards? Reading it daily in the Dwell Richly section of your 2017 Agenda? Or maybe you write out the verse as you practice your new love of calligraphy? Share with others how you memorize scripture by posting photos on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter using #dwellrichly and#scripturememory. We'd love to see what you're doing too so follow us and tag us @jitneysjourneys.

The Backstory
While the compilation of these verses is typically a group effort among many of our closest friends, we decided to change it up this year. In April of 2016, our daughter was diagnosed with Craniosynostosis at four weeks old. Eight weeks later, she was admitted to the hospital for craniofacial reconstructive surgery. The Lord, as always, was incredibly faithful. He was our shield and lifted our heads high. Coupled with the peace He gave us, we were astounded by the support and encouragement from our community. This year’s Dwell Richly resource is an accumulation of scripture friends and family sent us. {THANK YOU to each and every single one of you who stood alongside us and even helped to carry us during that season!} It is our prayer that you will cling to God’s Word in all circumstances, and that you will encourage others with it as well.
