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
