A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–2 John 1:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: 2 John 1:9 NKJV
Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.

This Week’s Message:
To “transgress” means to neglect, turn aside from or abandon trust in. “Doctrine” means teachings and “Abide” means to dwell in or walk with.
This verse is telling us then that those who neglect to walk in the teachings of Christ do not have God, but those who do have both the Father and the Son.
The New Living Bible translates the verse this way:
Anyone who wanders away from this teaching has no relationship with God.
But anyone who remains in the teaching of Christ has a relationship with both the Father and the Son.

Believers, this is a very straightforward verse. It shows us once again that there is only one way to God and that is through Jesus Christ.
It is a good reminder to us to examine ourselves daily in order to make sure we are abiding in Christ’s doctrine.
It is also a very sad verse in that there might be many we know who are not, either because they refuse to believe or because they have have turned away.

Let’s memorize this verse and use it this week as we are led to, either as a reminder to ourselves or to share with others.

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.

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

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.
