Beth Moore: Memorize 2 Corinthians 6:1-13
Writing on Twitter Tuesday, popular Bible teacher Beth Moore threw out a challenge to Christians to deepen their knowledge of Scripture.
"Memorize 2 Cor 6:1-13. Our landscape is a loaded minefield. We won’t make it accidentally. God has used this incomparably as a stabilizer in my ministry life amid all the insanity," she tweeted.
The passage of the New Testament epistle highlights the hardships of the Apostle Paul and urges believers in Jesus not to receive the grace of God in vain.
"We’re reading tons of books and listening to lots of podcasts and those are wonderful things. Let’s keep them up. But we’re in deep need of the Scriptures actually abiding in our brains & there’s no better segment to remind us of the true mark of successful ministry," Moore continued.
She went on to note that the passage concludes with a reminder to keep one's heart wide open, a reminder we need because closing our hearts will be a natural defense to rampant hostility.
"I’ve never wasted a single moment spent memorizing scripture. But let me tell you, this segment has been gold to me in this mess," Moore said.
"We have to get our heads back on straight. We can’t ride the constant roller coaster of public opinion -of being adored & abhorred — & keep our sanity. Our CHARACTER. We’re no longer throwing tomatoes. We’re throwing grenades. But there’s stability & steadiness to be had. Find it."
