Learning the Bible is the work of understanding its message and allow its message to change your thoughts.
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
The most obvious thing we can do is to draw certain key portions of Scripture into our minds and make them a part of the permanent fixtures of our thought. This is the primary discipline for the thought life. We need to know them like the back of our hand, and a good way to do that is to memorize them and then constantly turn them over in our minds as we go through the events and circumstances of our lifeDallas Willard
