Memorize Romans 8, one verse at a time



Hey everybody!
I got a very slow start this new year, but I’m planning a strong finish.

I’m going to memorize Romans 8 starting February 1. There are 39 verses, which means that even though I lost January completely, I can still finish by December 31, and have a few weeks in the middle just for review. Anybody want to join me? So far, we have 6 peopl

Romans 8 contains some of the most inspirational and practical words in the entire Bible—words to live by, words to die with.

You can memorize in any version you like. I will memorize in NIV1984 but you should pick the version you like best.

In the picture you see 3 ways to memorize:
• use your phone
• write the words on spiral index cards
• print the script from a Bible website
There are lots of ways to memorize, but these are the ones I use.

How will we do it together? Great question.
It depends on how many people we end up with. (I’m thinking we might use Group Me and send videos monthly of what we’ve done so far). The main thing is to have a way to stay on track by encouraging each other. And it will be fun!

If you think this opportunity might be for you, read over the words of Romans 8. Ask yourself if you need them in your life (I do!) then ask God if he will help you (He will!), tell us on the blog, then email me privately at

I will put together a master list and email everyone with some options.
OK friends, let’s do this!

  • This sounds fabulous, Janet! Yes, I’d love to join you all! One of my goals this year is to hide as much of God’s Word in my heart as possible. I’m excited to memorize Romans 8 this year! Years ago my Pastor in CA said his favorite verse in the Bible is Romans 8:1 because God promises believers are safe from the condemnation that non-believers will have to face because of their rejection of Christ. But because Jesus took our condemnation upon Himself on the cross, by faith in Jesus, we never will face condemnation. Praise the Lord! We are so blessed!

    I memorize individual verses but the idea of knowing the context in my heart sounds lovely. This is something I’d like to commit to for the year 2022.

  • I would love to join you, how do I do that?
