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.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse–W

Gold Letter WThis Week’s Memory Verse:
Wait on the LORD; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the LORD!
Psalm 27:14 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
Wait doesn’t just mean to languish or sit dejectedly, it means to expect, place all your hope in, look for the LORD–the One True God-Jehovah! It means to prevail, stand strong, press on.
It means to gather together all your faith and encourage yourself in His word. The root word for wait is actually to bind together or twist, quite like the stands of a rope are put together.
Therefore, we could look at our waiting time as one where we bind all our beliefs in God and His word together into a strong rope which we then hang onto and look for Him to come to us.
When we do that, He will come, He will strengthen us, He will build us up even more. He will confirm His word to be true to our hearts, our inner man, He will make us even stronger and bring us His assurance. Let’s wait on Him in this way and see what He does for us!

Let’s Memorize this verse and then put it into Action!
