A Precious Promise: Everlasting Life

This Week’s Memory Verse:
A Precious Promise: EVERLASTING LIFE
“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.” –Jesus (John 6:47 KJV)

This Week’s Message:
This week’s scripture is the wonderful promise of everlasting life, spoken by Jesus, to those who believe on Him!

To believe “on” someone means to put all your faith, hope and trust on them for whatever they are promising, in this case it would be believing on Jesus to receive everlasting life.

I chose this week, to memorize the King James version of this scripture, because the other translations, to me, do not have the same exact meaning as the KJV.

The New King James version says believes “in me”, and it does not quite have the same meaning as believing “on me” in my opinion.
You can believe in someone, yet might not really believe on them.
Just a bit different thought for me on this subject, so that is why I am choosing to memorize the KJV version for this verse.

The other bible translations say “he who believes” and to me that is too vague. I think Jeus words were specific: “he that believes on Me has everlasting life.”

So, this week let’s memorize the KJV version and truly believe on Jesus for everlasting life, but also believe in Him as well.

Blessings to you all as you memorize God’s word!

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization: Philippians 4:13

This Week’s Memory Verse: Philippians 4:13 KJV
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

This Week’s Message:
This week’s verse is one of my very favorites and one which I had memorized years ago and have often called it to mind whenever I felt the need for strength.
I have spoken it aloud, prayed it, and shared it with others. It is one of those basic go to verses that all of us will need to have in our mind and heart in order that we might call it quickly to mind whenever and whatever the need.
Paul says in the preceding verse: “I know how to live on almost nothing or with everything. I have learned the secret of living in every situation, whether it is with a full stomach or empty, with plenty or little.” Philippians 4:12 (NLT)  Paul had learned to be content in any situation he was in because Christ gave him the strength to do so.

Hebrews 13:8 says: “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.” Therefore, since Christ is the same today as He was in Paul’s time, we can be sure that Christ will strengthen us just as He did Paul.

Memorize this verse so you can carry it in your mind and heart as a reminder to you that you can do anything through Christ.

If you would like you can Print the memory 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 benefit from it also.

Blessings to you as you do all things through Christ you strengthens you this week and always.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–2 Peter 3:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: 2 Peter 3:9 KJV
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

This Week’s Message:
The Lord is not slack concerning his promise—the Lord has promised there will be a time that Christ will return and there will be a day of judgement–He has an appointed time that this will happen and it will happen at that time, not sooner–not later.
The Lord is not slow, He is not delaying the time, He is not tarrying—-what He is doing is being longsuffering or very patient, because He does not
want anyone to perish (die in sin) but He wants all people to repent and come to be saved.
He set the time long ago to give everyone a chance for salvation but when that time arrives He will not extend it.
That is why in 2 Corinthians 6:2 it says “…behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation”
No one should wait to repent of their sins and accept Christ as their Savior, because no one knows how much time they have.

Memorize this verse and share it with those you know who are lost, let them know that they need to repent and believe and receive Christ now before it is too late.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–1 Peter 3:18

This Week’s Memory Verse: 1 Peter 3:18 KJV
For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

This Week’s Message:
The Bible’s New Living Translation says it this way: Christ suffered for our sins once for all time. He never sinned, but he died for sinners to bring you safely home to God.
He suffered physical death, but he was raised to life in the Spirit.

Believers, we know that Christ has brought us to God and He has given us new life in the Spirit, this verse explains it very well. Let’s memorize this verse and use it to share with those who don’t know this and this is another Trinity verse that we can share also.

If you would like you can Print the memory 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 benefit from it also.

As you memorize and share this week, also remember to praise Christ for what He did to bring us to God and give thanks for His Spirit who has also quickened us to new life in Him for all eternity.

Blessings to you daily,
