A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Mark 9:23-24

This Week’s Memory Verse: Mark 9:23-24 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

(KJV for those who want to memorize in KJV)
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

This Week’s Message:
“If you can believe” Jesus said. “All things are possible to him who believes” Jesus said to this scribe who was not one of His followers, a man who had probably seen and heard Jesus, yet hadn’t really believed in Him. Scribes were teachers of the Law and often argued with Jesus and were against Him. I think the words Jesus spoke to the scribe were an invitation for him to believe in Jesus, not for him to believe that his son could be healed. I believe Jesus wanted the man to be healed of his unbelief first and then he would witness the healing of his son. And, the man did believe for he cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe”
To call Jesus, Lord, was to acknowledge that he did believe and receive Him as Lord and Savior, then he asks for forgiveness by saying “help my unbelief” which could be interpreted as forgive me for my lack of faith. A great thing happened that day for both the man and his son received healing and deliverance!

Memorize this verse and think upon it this week. Give thanks that you know Jesus as Lord. Give thanks that “all things are possible to him who believes” and if you have any unbelief, ask Jesus to remove it from you.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Luke 2:11

This Week’s Memory Verse: Luke 2:11 KJV
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

This Week’s Message:
I can remember hearing this verse and memorizing it as a child. I would hear it read in church every Christmas and I loved it. It, of course, didn’t have the full meaning to me then as it does now because as a child I didn’t really understand the amazing truth of what this verse was saying, but today it is a very special verse to me because it tells me that at some point in time God came to earth as a baby to deliver and redeem mankind from the curse of sin and death.
He came down from heaven to be our Savior. He was born of a woman and became man. He was called Christ which means Messiah,and Lord because He is Master of all.
What a wonderful event this was! We should celebrate everyday that Christ was born!

Memorize this verse and give thanks to God saying “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:14
for Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace and He, as God incarnate, came to
earth to bring good will toward all who will believe and receive Him as Savior and Lord.
For, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” Matthew 1:23
.Hallelujah!

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Jonah 2:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: Jonah 2:9 NKJV
But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

This Week’s Message:
Jonah was in repentance for his disobedience to the LORD. He had deliberately disobeyed what the LORD had told him to do and then paid the consequence for his actions.
When he was in the belly of the fish that the LORD had sent to save him from drowning he repented of his disobedience and offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD for saving him and he also vowed to the LORD that he would obey in the future, for he acknowledged that his salvation was of the LORD.

We can all learn from the story of Jonah that obedience to the LORD is always necessary. And, by memorizing this week’s verse we can remind ourselves that if the LORD tells us to do something, we had best obey and do it, for otherwise we may not only jeopardize our life but we may also endanger others.
Therefore, this week let’s offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD
for His Salvation and let’s  be sure to be obedient to whatever He has told us to do.

Also, we must always be careful in making vows to the LORD, for He does not take what we vow lightly.
He loves us with an everlasting love and He will discipline us if need be to keep us from going astray. So, this verse gives us plenty of food for thought this week.

As we memorize this verse, it would do us all well to read or re-read the book of Jonah, for there are some valuable lessons we can all learn from this short book.
It will be good to share this Jonah story with others who have never read it or heard about it for as we see in the story, the LORD even used Jonah’s disobedience and consequences to cause unbelievers to come to know Him and to call upon Him.

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 this week as you memorize the word of the LORD, obey what He is telling you through it, and share it with others.

Scripture Memorization–Spiritual Blessings: Enlightenment

Ephesians 1:18 This Week’s Scripture:
the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,  Ephesians 1:18 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
Before salvation we were lost, living in darkness, our minds were blinded to the truth.  However, once we believed and received Christ, it was as if a light was turned on, because Christ is the Light of the World and His Holy Spirit within us fills us with light and reveals truth to us as never before!
Therefore, one
of the Spiritual Blessings we believers receive in Christ is Enlightenment, which means, spiritually we are no longer in the dark.
Our understanding of scripture is increased, our minds are open to the knowledge of God’s will, and we are able to know the truth.

Let’s Memorize this verse and use this Blessing daily so that we can learn and grow and bring glory to God, every day in every way!
