Scripture Memorization–Spiritual Blessings: Eternal Glorying

Ephesians 3:10-11This Week’s Scripture: 
According to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord.  Ephesians 3:11 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
What was God’s eternal purpose that He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord?  I believe the previous verse, Ephesians 3:10, tells us: that now the manifold wisdom of God might be made known by the church to the principalities and powers in the heavenly places

God’s purpose was to defeat evil and reconcile mankind to Himself and this He did accomplish thru Christ’s death on the cross.  Therefore, now, for all eternity we believers can enjoy eternity with God and He can glory in us as well as we can glory in Him.

Us and God–Eternal Glorying—such a wonderful thought!
Memorize this verse to remind yourself just what your belief in Christ has given you and God too.  Then, rejoice and share this good news with others!

Scripture Memorization–Spiritual Blessings: Enlightenment

Ephesians 1:18 This Week’s Scripture:
the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,  Ephesians 1:18 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
Before salvation we were lost, living in darkness, our minds were blinded to the truth.  However, once we believed and received Christ, it was as if a light was turned on, because Christ is the Light of the World and His Holy Spirit within us fills us with light and reveals truth to us as never before!
Therefore, one
of the Spiritual Blessings we believers receive in Christ is Enlightenment, which means, spiritually we are no longer in the dark.
Our understanding of scripture is increased, our minds are open to the knowledge of God’s will, and we are able to know the truth.

Let’s Memorize this verse and use this Blessing daily so that we can learn and grow and bring glory to God, every day in every way!

Scripture Memorization–Spiritual Blessings: Deliverance

Ephesians 2:5
This Week’s Scripture:

even when we were dead in trespasses, [God] made us alive together with Christ
(by grace you have been saved), Ephesians 2:5

This Week’s Message:
When something is dead, it cannot do anything, it has no life unless God gives it life.
When something is delivered it is taken from one place to another place. It does not take itself, someone or something takes it.
This verse makes it very clear then, that our salvation was of God, not of ourselves.

When we were spiritually dead, we were destitute of a life that recognized God. We weren’t devoted to Him because we were given up to our sins.
We were not active in doing right according to God’s will, word and way. We were blinded to the truth. We needed to be delivered from this way of life.
We needed to be taken out of the kingdom of darkness and delivered into the kingdom of light. In His grace God did this for us thru Christ.

This week as you memorize this verse, think upon how your life was before Christ and think about how it is now in Christ.
Then, spend some time daily thanking God and Christ Jesus for your deliverance!

May you have a wonderful week as you walk in and memorize the Spiritual Blessings of Christ daily!

Scripture Memorization: Spiritual Blessings: Confidence

Ephesians 3:12This Week’s Scripture: 
In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.  Ephesians 3:12 KJV

This Week’s Message:
Just a few weeks ago we memorized this verse, so this week is a refresher for those of you that did that.

This verse contains three spiritual blessings: Access, Boldness and Confidence. Previously we focused on Access and Boldness, so this week we will think upon Confidence.
The verse says that In Christ, we who have faith in Him, have boldness and access with confidence.
“With confidence” means we can absolutely trust that in Christ we have access to God and can boldly enter into God’s presence as one of His children, we can

rely on this to be true because of our faith in Christ.

So, believers, let’s walk in this Blessing of Confidence this week!  Let’s rejoice and give thanks for these spiritual blessings we have received in Christ!

And, if you haven’t previously memorized this wonderful verse, please do so this week. If you have memorized it, use this time to refresh your memory on it
and give thanks for all the wonderful spiritual blessings it speaks of.

Blessings to you daily as you memorize and walk in  His word.

Scripture Memorization Spiritual Blessing: Chosen

Ephesians 1:4This Week’s Scripture:
just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, Ephesians 1:4 KJV

The NLT says: Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes.

This Week’s Message:
Believers, God was “not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 2Peter 3:9
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:16-17

God’s desire was for all those in the world to be His children, even before He created the world, even before He created us. God’s desire was to have a pure people with whom He could have a loving relationship, here on earth and for all eternity. That was why He made a way for that to happen. Jesus Christ is the Way. In Christ, we become the chosen of God.

As you memorize this verse, give thanks that before you were even born God made a way for you to have a loving relationship with Him.
Praise God today that you chose to believe and receive Christ, and in Christ, are now holy and without blame before God in love.
