WHY "WRITE THE VERSE" PASTORS JOSH & KATE?
WE ARE GLAD THAT YOU ASKED!
ROOT Binder Builders are for ALL AGES! The WORD of God is the ONLY thing that can and WILL transform our mind. And though we are learning ALL ABOUT the HOLY SPIRIT this semester, He can do nothing OUTSIDE OF THE WORD OF GOD!
The Renewed mind, while "understanding the Word, lacks the power to perform it, which is why we NEED the fullness of the Spirit of God to empower our human Spirit to carry out God's WORD!
The WORD requires the Spirit and the SPIRIT REQUIRES the WORD!
So, back to "writing".
Writing things out by hand forces the brain to engage with the material at an even deeper level than reading or typing it.
MORE THAN JUST TRANSCRIBING WORDS
Of course, the act of writing is just a tool in a more important process.
We gain the most when we choose to be mentally engaged and deeply think about God’s Word. God didn’t want the kings to just mindlessly copy words—He wanted them to think, consider, meditate on and ponder the meaning and intent of those words. Doing this would lengthen the process, but be of much greater benefit.
The Bible emphasizes the importance of meditating on God’s law and words.
MANY MODERN STUDIES HAVE BEEN DONE ON THE BENEFITS OF WRITING THINGS OUT BY HAND. ALMOST ALL OF THEM FIND THAT INFORMATION HAS A HIGHER CHANCE OF BEING INTERNALIZED AND RETAINED WHEN WE WRITE IT OUT BY HAND.
Meditating happens while writing and when the Word becomes a part of us we are TRULY transformed and the Spirit is able to make that Word REAL through us!
Watch for more Binder Builders coming soon before we round out this semester!
