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

This Week’s Memory Verse:
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 John 5:11 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
“And this is the testimony” John says “that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”

John, one of the disciples who walked and talked with Jesus here on earth, is sharing his testimony. He is saying that in Jesus we have eternal life.

We all have a choice to believe this as truth and receive Jesus as our Savior, or we can reject this and choose to believe there is some other way to eternal life.
All of us have free will. All of us need to make the choice before we die.
The scriptures are very clear that Jesus is the only Way to eternal life.
It is God’s hope that all would believe this truth and receive eternal life in His Son, however some choose not to.

This week let’s memorize this verse and rejoice that we who believe have received eternal life in Jesus.
Let’s also share this verse with others so they may have the chance to hear the truth and to choose eternal life.
Let’s also pray for those who hear and choose not to believe, that they may make the right choice before it’s too late.

Blessings to you as you memorize His word and walk with Him daily.

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: Adopted

Ephesians 1:5This Week’s Scripture:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,  Ephesians 1:5 KJV

This Week’s Message:
In the Bible’s New Living Translation this verse is put this way:

“God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.”

Aren’t you glad God wanted to do that? Aren’t you glad Jesus Christ made it possible? Aren’t you glad you are adopted as His own?

As children of God let’s give Him thanks and praise as we memorize this wonderful verse!

Carefully read this week’s verse. Break it down. Do you see what it is saying?
