The memory center is the place of retention and recall of Bible doctrine.
The memory center is extremely vital because it circulates Bible doctrine into the various parts of the right lobe producing recall, needed in times of pressure and adversity.

PRO 8:34 “Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at my doorposts.”
LUK 19:47 “And He was teaching daily in the temple; and the chief priests and the scribes and the leading men among the people were trying to destroy Him,”
LUK 22:53 “While I was with you daily in the temple,”
Satan knows the importance of the memory center being inculcated through repetition of doctrine.
“to stir you up” = pres/act/inf – diegeiro = to wake you up, to arouse you, to stir up.
EPH 4:1-2 “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, With all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance to one another in love,”

The only thing that keeps a believer from doctrine is his own negative volition and his “erroneous priorities.”
He is going to emphasize that it is not the “man” but the “message.”
Apostles, pastors, good Bible teachers die, but Bible doctrine is permanent.
Bible doctrine is permanent and eternal.
MAT 24:35 “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words shall not pass away.”
1PE 1:25 “But the word of the Lord abides forever. And this is the word which was preached to you.”
Every pastor who is faithful in teaching Bible doctrine will build something permanent.
