He’s okay about you having memory verses, but He really wants you to have experience and encounters through Scripture. He is really serious about you seeing yourself in this book. The Bible is Scripture. Jesus is the Word of God, and so the Word of God is meant to be a physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental transformation in your life. The word gets written on your heart through experience. You know that you know that you know that you know. The whole point of that is that you actually pass from faith into knowledge.
