What can i memorise?

I really enjoy memorising scripture.  It is such a blessing to me.  I tend to remember longer passages than just a verse.  I enjoy memorising whole chapters. 

I just finished memorising John 1-The Word became Flesh. (The first 18 verses).

What chapters would be chapters that you would say truly deserve memorisation?

Grace and Mercy

Last night at bible study, we were looking at God’s grace.  As we were looking up different verses about grace, i noticed that there was a whole lot of verses of mercy as well.  So i started wondering, what exactly is the difference?  I knew that you couldn’t interchange them in a sentence.  For example:  You could say God had mercy on me and forgave my sins, but you couldn’t say God had grace on me and forgave my sins.

Because my friend wasn’t exactly sure how to explain this to me, we went to ask her brother.  Her brother explained that grace is God holding a jacket out to us and that mercy is us accepting God’s grace and allowing God to put that jacket on us.  WOW.  What a distinct difference.  I didn’t think i would ever forget that, but i wanted to record it, just in case….
