“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord:
though your sins are like scarlet,
they shall be as white as snow;
though they are red like crimson,
they shall become like wool.” —Isaiah 1:18
Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter! —Isaiah 5:20
… but your iniquities have made a separation
between you and your God,
and your sins have hidden His face from you
so that He does not hear. —Isaiah 59:2
Memorizing more than one verse from a section of scripture helps us discover and plant deeper meaning of Scripture into our minds. If you are hungry to understand the Word in a fresh way, consider memorizing Isaiah 59:14-20 or the whole chapter of Isaiah 59. During other weeks of study, other passages will be suggested. If this intrigues you, try it! Just take it one phrase, one verse at a time. I’m cheering you on!
