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 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!

Precious Promise of Assurance

This Week’s  Memory Verse:
A Precious Promise of Assurance

…in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him.  Ephesians 3:12 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
You might be thinking….what is this verse…why am I memorizing this?
What does it mean? 

Well, it means a lot to us believers.  It is a very important verse and one which we should cling to, because it is a very precious promise from God to us who believe in His Son, Jesus.

It is saying that because of our faith in Christ, God has opened the door to His throne room to us!  Because of Christ, we now have access to the Father–anytime day or night.  We can come confidently, boldly to the Throne, knowing full well that God will receive us!
This is a wonderful promise of Assurance to us and one which we should remember and cling to. 

The New Living Translation of the bible says it like this:
“Because of Christ and our faith in Him, we can now come fearlessly into God’s presence, assured of His glad welcome.”  Ephesians 3:12 [NLT]

Be blessed as you memorize and cling to His Precious Promise of Assurance this week!
