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!
