Memory Verses in 1 Peter

Time Posted on August 02, 2011 User Phil Walker

Rachel, a committed Memverse member, has started a group of people committing to memorizing 1 PETER.  Very cool.  I will let her update this page to include information on how the program works.  When the Bible Bee local competition is over, it would be neat to set up an accountability chart here for memorizing 1 PETER.  It would also be very cool to run a 1 PETER Live quiz or 2 either while we are memorizing or after we are done.  There are now 20+ people in the group.  If you would like to join us in memorizing 1 PETER with the group, please let us know.

The current group of 38 members =

1 Peter Memorizers

-- Rachel Crosswhite (me); SavedByGrace; Bethany (Bible Bee); Phil Walker; Matthew Minica; Josiah DeGraaf; Marie Morris; 

-- Eunice Sophia; BibleBeeJunior11; Ranch4Christ; Rachel; Simeon; Carissa (BB); Alex Watt; Kaitlyn Vredevoogd; RyanV; 

-- AmyV; NathanV; vburk; BrookeNicole; Sarah (Bible Bee); Zachary Baas; Sara Kenyon; Hannah Teeters; Emily; Lydia;

-- Sarah Stelzl; Jonathan Staddon; China Dennington; God's Little Child; Clay Dennington; Daniel Dalton; Jo B; Elessar;

-- Alethea Leonard; Kerestel Leonard; Monica Duitsman, Christian A

Please let us know if you no longer want to be listed or if you were listed twice by mistake.

Please be active in praying for members in the group as we take in this exciting book.

We don't want to accountability chart people to death.  However, we also want to give an outlet for people who are memorizing 1 PETER.  Group leader "Jesus Paid it All" has set Jan 31st, 2012 as a target date to finish, giving time to Bible Bee Finalists to finish after Nashville.  However, people are welcome to keep memorizing and declaring after that date.  There are 105 verses in this awesome book, so we will make each declaration = 5 verses.  We will welcome and post single, double and triple declarations as we understand that some have already been memorizing 1 PETER.  We ask you to refrain from declaring more than 15 verses at once, but rather return back for future declarations.  Declarations can be made from any parts of 1 PETER since we know some are not starting with 1:1.  We would love for you to join us!! Can we, Lord willing, get all 37 on, or better yet to eventually complete this chart?

Sample declarations = John D   IL   Set A = 1 PETER 4:1-5 = 5 verses; or  Frank J   NM   Set A, B, C = 1 PETER 2:3-17 = 15 verses or my first declaration of Phil W   IND   Set A,B = 1 PETER 1:13-20; 2:9-10 = 10 verses

1 PETER Accountability/Encouragement chart: Each declaration = 5 verses

Praise the LORD!! 22 people and counting! Only 8 more till we get 30 !! Praise the Lord!
Does anyone else want to join?

I was planning to start sometime after the Local Contest...probably in the beginning of September. You all are welcome to start whenever you want and feel free to go at your own speed. I was thinking I would memorize about one or two verses per day.... finishing around the end early November or Thanksgiving time. Please share your thoughts.

Andy gave me permission to create a topic on GetSatisfaction for this project...Thank you Andy!! If you have any questions or anything, something the Lord has shown you through 1 PETER that you would like to share, feel free to post them on there. :) The link is below

One thing is...1 Peter *should* be easy to memorize because there are only 105 verses =D

Carissa - do you have 2 accounts? Carissa and Carissa (BB) ? Just wondering.

Thank you for all participating ;) God bless you all

This is exciting. Depending on whether I make it to Nationals or not, I will start after my last contest day. Does that make sense? Maybe finish by the end of the year? That gives time for us to do some school. :P I know I will need to catch up being that we will start school after Bible Bee.

@Rachel Crosswhite--my personal decision about memorizing 1 Peter is that I will memorize as much as I can before the Bible Bee and start memorizing more quickly when I don't have as many verses to memorize for the Bible Bee. This could be after the locals or the nationals, depending on how well I do at the locals.
But for anyone else, they can do whatever they want. But I'd encourage those joining me in memorizing the Bible to start doing it as soon as they can, to get a good start. But no pressure coming from me... ;)

@Rachel Crosswhite--I think I'll make it. But of course, I won't know 'til I get there. I'm trying a lot harder this year than I ever did before--I think I might accomplish the goals of finishing the Sword Study and Bible Bee verses and making it to the Nationals. But if not, that's okay with me. At least I'll have tried.
@Hannah Teeters--I'm pretty sure you can start whenever you want and that to join you just say so here. I am planning on doing some before the BB and do it a little more fervently afterwards.
@Rachel--unless Rachel Crosswhite says otherwise, I'm sure that's fine. I think even she said that she'd be doing that.
Has anyone gotten to their two-to-ten chapters a day yet, or are you going to soon? I've read mine--but don't let how soon I read them make you feel pressured. Even if you (accidentally) miss a day, you don't have to catch up--just pick up where you left off.

SBG, what is the two-to-ten chapters?

7e5049e93d0fd8cbb0dc44ba8120b033?d=wavatar
Rachel

Wow, I was sooo confused for a bit there... "I DID?!?"

But anyway, I am in! 'Course, what with reading the book so many times for the BB study, I could probably recite with a fair degree of accuracy already... that'll make it that much easier. :D

Also, I so laughed at there being *only* 105 verses in 1 Peter. You do realize that that's far more than most people have memorized, right? I remember when my family set out to memorize James (also somewhere around there.) I thought 100+ verses was an insurmountable challenge. Now? Sheesh. A week's work, maybe. XD

SavedByGrace

@Sarah--along with memorizing the entire Bible (one post up), I started a group who have joined me in deciding to read two, ten, anything in between, and anything above chapters of the Bible per day. Ten would be preferable (check out a link Alex gave here: http://www.willowbendchurch.org/docs/ReadingPlan_HornerSystem1.pdf to see why), but anything above two chapters a day is the choice. :)

But, Rachel Crosswhite, all those joining mine will memorize 1 Peter as well! :) I've still only memorized the first two verses of chapter 1...but it's only because of the BB. And I'll memorize it quickly when I don't have to (er...GET to, that is) do the Bible Bee anymore. I'll try to finish chapter 1 before the locals, but I don't think I can commit to anything.

Simeon, I have sword drill 2011 and love it!! My scores don't show up on the internet because I am not a contestant.

For those who use NIV, you can order a "sword drill" for 1 PETER. (which also includes 2 PETER and HEBREWS, an excellent resource for those who plan to memorize those books as well in the future) It is called Quiz Pro. It has an added feature. Not only does it give you a score for how many verses you can complete in 5 minutes like the sword drill, but it also times you for how fast you can go through a chapter. My scores are on the internet for this, and it would be super cool to see your scores up there too for mutual encouragement and inspiration as we work through 1 PETER together and if you will also be memorizing the other books. (My initials are PKW) You can order it at biblebowl.net/Order.aspx?VSN=AG&MENUID=ORDER (Rachel shared that it does not work on her computer, so you may want to check on that before you order)

@Mr. Walker--I might check that out--but maybe not. But if you ever see "SavedByGrace" on the leaderboard there (or whatever it is), you'll know I have it! :)

I can quote the whole book now (with a lot of mistakes/prompts). Reading a chapter almost every day in the Sword Study has really helped me to do this easier. For the last 2 weeks of BB I am going to be working on those hard cross-references and maybe memorize some of them - the ones that I don't already have memorized, anyway, which sure are a lot!

I am praying for everybody in the Bible Bee and hoping, Lord willing, that I can meet many of you at Nationals this year or in upcoming years. May God bless your efforts! It will not return void to you! Isa 55:11

@China & Clay: I noticed that you guys do not have a church/organization group set on your profile yet. Would you like to set it as 1 PETER Project now? We need as many members as we can get!

EDIT: Although I totally understand everybody who wants to keep their current church. I don't really have a good church to be in right now (the only other that is in Church of God (Seventh Day) is my sister, who has not done Memverse for a while) so that is why I am so eager to join 1 PETER Project and to have others do it too. Please don't feel pressured by my enthusiasm.

For those considering joining Christian and Nicolas with their "Memorizing ROMANS in 16 Months" project, their Dad made up a well thought out schedule on an awesome looking calendar chart with review days scheduled and neat motivational quotes from ROMANS sprinkled in from time to time to keep us focused. I am in and I am sure Christian and Nicolas would love for others to join as well. I don't know how to post the chart on memverse. However, if you let Christian and Nicolas know you are joining, I am sure they will get the chart to you, or perhaps Andy, Alex, or Emeka will find a way and place to post it on memverse.

Here are the basics to help you get started. Maximum of 1 verse per day. Several reveiw days including one at the end of every chapter. Starts on Thurs Sept 1st, 2011 and ends on Dec 31st, 2012. (What a cool way to end that year). The September schedule is: Sept 1 - 15 = ROMANS 1:1-15; Sept 16th is review; Sept 17th - 24th = ROMANS 1:16-23; Sept 25th is review. Sept 26th - 30th = ROMANS 1:24-28.

Hi! My first post! I'd like to join, please.
I'd been thinking of trying to memorise Philippians, but it'd be great to know others are doing the same thing, and I don't know 1 Peter as well, so I know God will have lots to teach me through it! I might be a bit slow though! So far I've added a verse for each chapter, as I want to try the 'gem, swiss cheese, enchilada' approach:-)

1575c466bffd5e7fd60d18c3b4c12bed?d=wavatar

Jo B, great to see you joining the 1 PETER group. Your 'gem, swiss cheese, enchilada' approach sounds interesting. What does the enchilada part mean? Welcome to memverse and thanks for posting. Now that you have jumped in, we look forward to seeing your future posts. I am curious where you are from and how you heard about memverse. edit - I just saw that you are in the United Kingdom and would love to hear more about your church St. John Newland. How can we best spread the word about memverse to more people in the United Kingdom?

Nameless, it is a little hard for me to add you to the 1 PETER group if I don't know your name.

Zachary, all procedure questions should be directed to Rachel Crosswhite as she is in charge and will give guidelines as to how the group will run.

Alethea and Kerestel, welcome to the 1 PETER group.

Rachel, have you thought of how you want this group to work? If you want me to, I can make another accountability chart, or you can encourage people to declare without a chart. If you set a target finish date, I would suggest the end of 2011 which would give National Finalists a chance to finish after Nashville.

D925a2835d3016d95d44795bd5931b8c?d=wavatar

Thanks Mr. Walker! My brother and me plan to have them both memorized before Nationals. Now, before the Bible Bee I would've thought that to be a big goal but now, pshaw. :)

Mr Walker - That sounds great! I have given it some thought...and thought that our target date could maybe be December 31st, 2011? But that does not have to apply to everyone...they can go as fast as they want! I plan to have it done by the 31st...that spans my memory time to about a verse a day :) I think an accountability chart would be a great way to get everyone up and going on this project :) you choose how many verses to declare in each deceleration.
I also think having a few quizzes would be a fun thing to do. I know everyone enjoys them... :) i loved the Bible Bee quizzes :D
Thanks so much! God bless! :D

We don't want to accountability chart people to death. However, we also want to give an outlet for people who are memorizing 1 PETER. Group leader "Jesus Paid it All" has set Dec 31st as a target date to finish, giving time to Bible Bee Finalists to finish after Nashville. However, people are welcome to keep memorizing and declaring after that date.

There are 105 verses in this awesome book, so we will make each declaration = 5 verses. We will welcome and post single, double and triple declarations as we understand that some have already been memorizing 1 PETER. We ask you to refrain from declaring more than 15 verses at once, but rather return back for future declarations.

Declarations can be made from any parts of 1 PETER since we know some are not starting with 1:1.

We would love for you to join us!! Can we, Lord willing, get all 37 on, or better yet to eventually complete this chart?

Sample declarations = John D IL Set A = 1 PETER 4:1-5 = 5 verses; or Frank J NM Set A, B, C = 1 PETER 2:3-17 = 15 verses or my first declaration of Phil W IND Set A,B = 1 PETER 1:13-20; 2:9-10 = 10 verses

Rachel (Crosswhite) / Jesus-Paid-It-All ~ Your new name reminded me of that great song. Thanks. Anyway, I wanted to say that I believe the Memverse quiz feature will probably be open to everyone sometime between after the National Bible Bee and before the end of 2011, so whenever that is released, you can certainly run quizzes. Good job leading the 2 Peter group.

Declaration

Alex W, PA; SET A = 2 PETER 1:2-8, 1:20-21, 2:2-4, 3:10-12 = 15 verses

Haha, yes, we don't want to accountability chart people to death. :) Thanks for running them, Phil, and I'm glad to do my first 2 Peter declaration; though I will probably be slow in learning any more verses from this book until after the Bible Bee is over. I do hope to finish all three accountability charts eventually, even if I do not get them done until after the Bee.

Edit: Bethany - Thanks for pointing out that this is 1 Peter, not 2 Peter. I guess that's what happens when you respond to comments when you are getting tired. :) You can disregard my "declaration". Oops. :)

@Mr. Walker and Alex - OK, I'm slightly confused about this chart. Are we declaring 1 or/and 2 Peter? I see that you, Mr. Walker, wrote 1 Peter in the post...but then Alex did a declaration in 2 Peter. If either of you could explain it to me, I would be greatly appreciative :) Thanks. Oh, one more things, how many do we get to declare in a day? 5...10...15??? Sorry about so many questions...
@Mr. Walker - I haven't forgotten about the other chart...don't worry. When I find a few extra minutes, I'll do a declaration.
@Alex - Glad to see you joining us on the chart! Also, good job on memorizng so many from 2 Peter! I know a few verses, but not that many :)

Rachel, it feels good to get this off the ground. (Please forgive my delay) Feel free to give any guidance or encouragement to the group as we work through 1 PETER. Thanks for your comments on 1 PETER 1:1-10 to help inspire people.

Alex, I will not include your verses on this chart. However, 2 PETER verses are welcome on the Finalist chart. Can I use your 15 verses to start you up on there, or would you rather wait until after Finals?

Bethany, we encourage and gladly welcome declarations of 5, 10 or 15 verses. We are doing our best to never be legalistic, but discourage declaring more than 15 verses at one time or in one day as that kind of defeats the purpose of an ongoing accountability/encouragement chart.

Jesus-Paid-It-All, you are right on. However, it can also include others who were in the Bible Bee and are no longer participating even if they are not too old to be eligible. Bethany, I pray for the day when this will be far and away the biggest group (or the 2nd biggest group, behind STT Setia) to show evidence that the Scripture young people are memorizing for the Bible Bee is not just a passing fad or a temporal thrill, but rather a catalyst leading to a life long pursuit and treasuring of God's Word. I praise God for the 2009 champion Daniel Staddon leading the way in this group.

Allright, Bethany, I'll probably join...but not right now. I am working on memorizing 2 Peter right now. After I am done, I will work on perfecting 1 Peter.

Monica, Amy, Simeon, and Carissa, please forgive me for dropping the ball in putting you guys up on this chart. Great to see all 4 of you joining.

Carissa, I would like to join your 2 PETER group as I am memorizing that book as a part of the Finalists chart.

Bethany is right, Matthew. We would love for you to join our chart at whatever time is most convenient to you.

Rachel, I don't think I want to start a new post as these declarations can encourage all in 1 PETER, and others can still comment or share other thoughts here as well. BTW I changed your target date on the original post.

Carissa, you are welcome. Great to see you are memorizing these verses. May you be ready for any 1 PETER questions (including the Greek, cross reference, and other non memory questions) they ask you.

Phil W IDN Set E and F = 1 PETER 4:10-19 = 10 verses By the way I am correcting my 3 letter code for Indonesia to IDN, rather than using the IND I was using which actually belongs to India. Wouldn't it be exciting if someone from India decides to join us in memorizing 1 PETER?!

Just checking (haven't done any declarations before) that you only declare when your verses are counted as memorised?
I could take some time...!

Jo B, thanks for checking. You can declare when you have memorized the verses, not when Memverse calls them memorized. Most, if not all of us don't have our declared verses yet called memorized on Memverse.

I only just saw this here today. I didn't know that we could declare 1 Peter verses that we've learned! We should start one of these for 2 Peter too!

Hopefully you don't mind if I post all that I know in own post. If you do, then just split it up over a few.

Christian A OH "A"= 1 Peter 1:1-10 = 10 verses.
"B" = 1 Peter 1:11-20 = 10 verses.
"C" = 1 Peter 1:21-25; 1 Peter 2:1-5 = 10 verses.
"D" = 1 Peter 2:6-15 = 10 verses.
"E" = 1 Peter 2:16-25 = 10 verses.
"F" = 1 Peter 3:1-7, 15-17 = 10 verses.
"G" = 1 Peter 3:18; 1 Peter 4:1, 8, 12-15; 1 Peter 5:8-10 = 10 verses.

Christian, great to see you joining the chart!! Are you keeping up with the ROMANS as well? There is an outside chance I may be able to attend Nationals this year. If I do come, I hope we can find time at some point in the weekend to have a ROMANS 1-2; 1 PETER, and 2 PETER joint quote for those who are memorizing.

Each declaration letter = 5 verses, so you have made 14 declarations taking you through N. Your next 5 verses will be for set O. For the chart we ask for a maximum of 3 letters per day. I gave you one catch up day to put you among the leaders at F. I will add three more letters per day until the chart catches up to your declarations.

@ Alex Watt: Duh. Sorry, I forgot about that. I'm already doing that, so I should have remembered. :D

@ Phil Walker: Yeah, I'm doing my best to keep up with Romans. Today I memorized Romans 2:12, as I'm sure you probably did. It would be fun to do that at Nationals; that's a great idea! I hope you can make it!

Oh, okay. I thought I saw that someone had declared 10 verses. That makes more sense. So, as that is the case, I'm farther along than anyone in my memorization of the book. All the glory to God, I guess. :D

ChiefOfSinners, I believe others have memorized the whole book and are just slower in declaring. However, you are one letter beyond Kaitlyn in declaring and the next day I update, I will be caught up in posting your N declaration. What a great book to memorize! I could spend a lifetime meditating on 1:17-19 or 2:9 or 2:21 or 3:15 or 4:19 or 5:9-10

@Nikki, there is not a specific page for the Romans Project, but if you go to the blog called "Memorizing the Entire Bible?" you will find a blog entry by Mr. Walker, listed back in July or August 2011, in which he provides the Micorsoft Word file that has the Romans Memorization Calendar in it. It's a 16-month schedule, from September 2011 through December 2012. It's not too late to start. We only now just started Romans 4. There's plenty of time to catch up! If you choose to take on the challenge, please JOIN THE "ROMANS PROJECT" GROUP. Hope you can join us!

Wow! God is good! I never thought I'd be able to memorise a chapter, let alone a book. What a wonderful blessing it was this morning to take a walk by the river (see my picture:-)) after church and be able to go right through 1 Peter in my head... and to notice the grasses and flowers that Peter quotes at the end of chapter 1 - they change each time I go for my walk, but God's word endures for ever:-) and it's wonderful to know it and Him better through memorising it.

Thank you Rachel for getting this going and thank you Phil for the encouragement.

Great picture and wonderful testimony, Jo B CONGRATULATIONS on finishing your first book! I pray that God will use 1 PETER powerfully in your life for yours to come. Great to see England involved with memorizing this wonderful book. I pray that more and more people in England will treasure and memorize Scripture and praise God for the historical legacy England has in our Christian faith.
