Scripture Memorization–Enduring To The End–Week 2

This Week’s Memory Verse:
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.

Romans 12:12 NIV

In Romans chapter 12, Paul is beseeching the brethren to offer themselves fully to the service of God, meaning he is earnestly telling the believers in Christ that this is something they should be doing considering the mercy God has shown them by sending His Son Jesus to bring them the gift of salvation.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.
Romans 12:2 NKJV
He is telling them basically to serve God daily with their whole heart, mind, soul and body, being joyful in the hope of Christ’s return, not living for the present world but renewing their minds daily with the word of God. Living daily in the will of God, not their own will.  They should live as one body with one another, having one mind in Christ, patient in their afflictions and faithful in prayer.

This is still how we believers should be living daily.  We should be living out the words in Romans chapter 12.  This is how we can serve God, stand firm in our faith, and endure these end time trials.

There are many great verses in this chapter we could memorize, but I thought Romans 12:12 was kind of a short summary and it would be easy for us to memorize. It is a good reminder for us how we should be living daily. If we not only memorize it, but also do it daily, we will be serving God as we build ourselves up in faith and endurance for these end times that we are living in.

I would suggest that you also take the time to read the whole chapter of Romans 12 for there are many good things that Paul is beseeching the brethren (which is us as well) to do, and we can certainly benefit from it.

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!
