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.

Spiritual Blessing: Boldness!

This Week’s Scripture:
Ephesians 3:12

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This Week’s Message:  Boldness!
Boldness means: freedom in speaking, unreservedness in speech, permission to speak openly and frankly, without concealment or ambiguity.
You could say it is real freedom of speech!

I am normally not a bold person, actually I am quite shy, however when it comes to spiritual things I am quite bold.  Why? Because this verse tells me that I have boldness.

In whom *[Christ Jesus our Lord] we *[believers] have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him *[Christ Jesus our Lord] 
Ephesians 3:12 KJV     (*text in [ ] added for clarification purposes.)

Because of my faith in Christ, I have a spiritual boldness that is in me.
I know that in Christ I have access which is a relationship with God and I know I  can go before God freely, fearlessly, as His child, anytime, anyplace.
I also have a boldness in prayer because I know I have the authority of Christ within me. I know I can pray boldly in His Name, with His authority and power because of my faith in Him.
This boldness is a wonderful Spiritual Blessing that all we believers have.
We should memorize this verse to remind ourselves daily of who we are in Christ, what we are blessed with, and then boldly walk in the many blessings we have received.
