A Precious Promise on : REWARD

A Precious Promise about: REWARD
“Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” –Jesus
Matthew 5:11,12 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
The word Blessed is makários in Greek. It means exactly what it says--blessed, happy, fortunate.

I am sure there have been times we have shared our faith, or stood firm in our beliefs that we have not felt fortunate, nor blessed.
Under persecution one does not normally feel happy, yet Jesus is telling us we should be exceedingly glad, even rejoicing!
Yes, Jesus is saying anytime we are reviled, persecuted or falsely accused for our beliefs in Him, we will be rewarded for it in heaven.

Isn’t that a wonderful promise to cling to!  Therefore, let’s keep this in our minds whenever we might be suffering in some way for our faith.

Let’s memorize this verse to remind ourselves to stand for the faith and share the truth daily, no matter what, for someday we will be rewarded for it in heaven!

Then, when the world is rejecting us, we can rejoice! When we are falsely accused for sharing the truths of scripture, we can be exceedingly glad!

 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.  1 Peter 5:4 KJV

Blessings to you daily.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Song of Songs 2:4

This Week’s Memory Verse:
He brought me to the banqueting house, and his banner over me was love.
Song of Songs 2:4 KJV

This Week’s Message:
I chose this weeks verse because it reminds me of a time in the future when I am going to be going into God’s Kingdom in heaven where Jesus will be waiting to take me to dine at His Marriage Supper of the Lamb as spoken of in Revelation 19:6-9.
I am not sure if this weeks verse is referring to that time or if it is just a reminder to me, but I think it could be and I know there will be such a time for me for God’s word says so. Therefore, it seems to be a great, encouraging verse to memorize.

The book Song of Songs does not specifically mention the name of God, Lord, or Christ, however there are several verses in it that I think make reference to one of those names and this verse is one of those.

I hope you will join me in memorizing this scripture this week and that you are as encouraged by it as I am.

Blessings to you this week as you rest in His love and look forward to a great time in the future in His Kingdom.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Romans 6:23

This Week’s Memory Verse: Romans 6:23 KJV
For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

This Week’s Message:
Dear friends, I am assuming that all of you who are signed up for this Weekly Memorization are believers in Christ and have received God’s gift of eternal life.

At sometime in your life you had a choice, you could have chosen to serve the world, the flesh and the devil and receive the wages that go with that earthly lifestyle of sin.
Those wages which are spiritual death–a life lived separate from God here on earth and someday eternally.
But…you chose to serve God by believing and receiving His Son, Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and thereby received God’s gift of life abundantly here on earth and someday eternally.  Praise God for that choice! It is by far the best one!

This week’s verse shows us that all mankind basically has this life and death choice.
Believe and receive Christ and choose to serve God, receive the gift of eternal life.
Refuse to believe–reject Christ and you will receive the wages of sin, which is death–eternally. It is a sobering thought.

Memorize this verse and rejoice that you have made the best choice–the one which receives eternal life.
Then, share this verse with all you know who are un-believers and pray that they will make the right choice also.
