A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Jude 1:20-21

This Week’s Memory Verse:  Jude 1:20-21 NKJV
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

This Week’s Message:
In this Week’s Memory Verse Jude is speaking to believers, reminding them to remain in the true faith of which they had first been taught because, he is saying, False Teachers have crept in among them, people who are not true believers, but who say they are, and who are causing many to go astray from the truth.

In this week’s verse Jude is telling true believers to build themselves up
(strengthen their belief in order to stand strong) in the most holy faith (the true faith of which they had first been taught).

He is telling them to:

  • pray in the Holy Spirit
    (praying in the Spirit strengthens and uplifts believers–it is also an effective tool in warfare)
  • keep themselves in the love of God
    ( stay true to the One True God, be obedient to Him, read His word, follow His teaching, so as not be led astray by false teaching)
  • look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
    (look for the return of Christ who is our Savior and soon coming King in whom we have the hope of eternal life)
    (Please take note—Jude is speaking of the Trinity here–Holy Spirit, God, Jesus Christ.)

So, this week let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves, as true believers, of what we should be doing daily.

If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.
It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–3 John 1:11

This Week’s Memory Verse: 3 John 1:11 NKJV
He who does good is of God, but he who does evil has not seen God.

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is pretty straightforward–it is speaking of the difference between good and evil in those who know God and those who don’t know Him.
The word “seen” is “horaō” in Greek which is a verb which means: to know or to become acquainted with by experience

The word “good” is “agathos” in Greek which means:
of good nature–useful–pleasant, agreeable, joyful, happy–excellent–upright, honourable   All these things are of God.

The word “evil” is “kakos” in Greek which means:
of a bad nature–not such as it ought to be–of a mode of thinking, feeling, acting base, wrong, wicked, troublesome, injurious, pernicious, destructive, baneful.
All these things are done by those who do not know God or who have not become acquainted with Him by experience

Believers, we should be doing good things naturally because we have a relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Anytime evil thoughts come into our minds or we are tempted to do evil actions we can immediately know these things are not of God and we should cast them out of our lives. Satan might try to influence us to do these wrong things, but we have the power of the Holy Spirit within us to refuse and resist him.,
James 4:7 says: Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

So, this week let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves to do good daily and also to pray for those who don’t—for as this verse tells us, they need to know God
and we believers are the ones who can share Him with them.

If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.
It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might

Blessings to you daily

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Haggai 1;5 and 1:7

This Week’s Memory Verses: Haggai 1:5 and 1:7 NKJV
Now therefore, thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!
Thus says the LORD of hosts: “Consider your ways!

This Week’s Message:
This week we have two verses to memorize, but they are very short, very much the same, and very important, because when the LORD says something more than once, it is wise to take notice!

In these verses we hear the LORD of hosts speaking to the Jews who had returned to their land after their exile in Babylon. Right after they returned they had begun work to rebuild the Temple that had been destroyed, however, after sixteen years they had not completed the work because they had been letting their personal affairs interfere with doing God’s work.
They had been putting off working, saying it wasn’t the right time, that they would do it later, etc. But now, the time came that the LORD began to sternly remind them thru the prophet Haggai that they needed to start putting God’s work first and finish what they had started.

These verses are a good reminder to us believers, in that Jesus left us with a job to do also. In Mark 16:15 Jesus said: “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.”
This has often been called “The Great Commission” to believers. Perhaps it is time for us to “Consider our ways”. Have we been sharing the gospel as we should or have we been putting it off for a “better time”?  Have we said ” I will speak to so and so about Christ, but now is just not the right time to do so.” ? If so, we need to stop and  “Consider our ways” and begin doing the LORD’s work as we have been told.

Memorize this verse as a reminder to yourself daily to share the gospel with all you meet. Let’s busy ourselves with building the LORD’s Kingdom daily, for this is the most important work we can do!

If you would like you can Print the verse out in a card format to post to your bathroom mirror, refrigerator, car visor, or other place that would keep it in your daily vision.
It will help to remind you to memorize it as you go through your day and also could be a great tool in sharing with others who might see it.

“I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”

This Week’s Message:
Believers, this is an excellent verse for us to memorize and repeat to ourselves daily.
We need to be reminded of Christ’s wonderful love for us and what He did for us.
We need to be reminded who we are in Christ and how we are to live.
Don’t you think this verse would be a wonderful verse to put on your bathroom mirror so that you could read it out loud to yourself every morning?
