P2R Officially Begins Today!

The Partnering to Remember 2011 Philippians Memory Moleskine challenge officially begins today! I want to begin this new year with the words of Jesus from John 15.  When thinking about getting people to “blurb” the new project, I thought there was no one better to plug memorizing Scripture than Jesus Himself. 🙂  Think on these words of Jesus and the implications they should have in our lives . . .

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser.
2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away,
and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes,
that it may bear more fruit.
3 Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you.
4 Abide in me, and I in you.
As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine,
neither can you, unless you abide in me.
5 I am the vine; you are the branches.
Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit,
for apart from me you can do nothing.
6 If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers;
and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.
7 If you abide in me, and my words abide in you,
ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
8 By this my Father is glorified,
that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.

– John 15:1-8

    I love what you are doing with this P2R project and it has inspired me to get back into Scripture Memory! I have a son that needs to memorize 1 Peter this spring. I could not in good conscience memorize Philippians when I know he needs a partner for 1 Peter so I am applying your principles to that book. I would love to have a moleskin journal like yours. In fact, I bought them today. Would you be willing to share your Moleskin Template so that it could be created with 1 Peter? Much to my delight, 1 Peter has only one more verse then Philippians so I am even following your schedule. Thank you so much for your motivation and encouragement to get back to memorizing God’s Word!
