God’s Love Scripture Memorization

This Week’s Memory Verse:
Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10 KJV

God’s Love is what great love is.  His love for us is so great that He sent His Son to die for for the sins of mankind in order that mankind might be able to be reconciled to Him and have a close, personal relationship as they once had in the Garden of Eden.
(And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world. 1 John 2:2 KJV)

Propitiation means: atonement, appeasement, reconciliation, conciliation, payment, recompense, remedy, remission, retribution, etc. etc.–which means Christ’s death was the payment for our sins, and not for ours only, but also for sins of the whole world.

Those who choose to believe this and accept Christ as their Savior are cleansed and forgiven for their sins because of Christ’s propitiation,  those who do not, who reject Christ as the atonement, will die in their sins–there is no other way that mankind can be set free from sin, otherwise if there was, why would God have sent His only Son to suffer and die for sin?

It is a choice we all have to make, and those of us who have chosen to believe and receive are most blessed to have that close personal relationship with God the Father, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, and the Holy Spirit  who resides within us. Amen!!??

Memorize this verse and think upon it daily.  Rejoice in God’s great love, give thanks for Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, and share this verse with others you know who do not yet know about the great love of God.

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.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Obadiah 1:15

This Week’s Memory Verse: Obadiah 1:15 KJV
For the day of the LORD is near upon all the heathen: as thou hast done, it shall be done unto thee: thy reward shall return upon thine own head.

This Week’s Message:
This week our memorization verse is not about us believers, it is about the ungodly people, those who choose to reject the LORD and do evil.
Obadiah was speaking about the coming judgment upon the ungodly people of Edom who were against Israel.
The book of Obadiah is the smallest book in the Old Testament–it is only one chapter, read it to better understand the meaning of this verse.

Then, as you memorize this verse, pray for the lost people and nations of the world who need salvation. Pray that they will repent before it’s too late.

A to Z Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Mark 9:23-24

This Week’s Memory Verse: Mark 9:23-24 NKJV
Jesus said to him, “If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes.”
Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!”

(KJV for those who want to memorize in KJV)
Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
And straightway the father of the child cried out, and said with tears, Lord, I believe; help thou mine unbelief.

This Week’s Message:
“If you can believe” Jesus said. “All things are possible to him who believes” Jesus said to this scribe who was not one of His followers, a man who had probably seen and heard Jesus, yet hadn’t really believed in Him. Scribes were teachers of the Law and often argued with Jesus and were against Him. I think the words Jesus spoke to the scribe were an invitation for him to believe in Jesus, not for him to believe that his son could be healed. I believe Jesus wanted the man to be healed of his unbelief first and then he would witness the healing of his son. And, the man did believe for he cried out and said with tears, “Lord, I believe”
To call Jesus, Lord, was to acknowledge that he did believe and receive Him as Lord and Savior, then he asks for forgiveness by saying “help my unbelief” which could be interpreted as forgive me for my lack of faith. A great thing happened that day for both the man and his son received healing and deliverance!

Memorize this verse and think upon it this week. Give thanks that you know Jesus as Lord. Give thanks that “all things are possible to him who believes” and if you have any unbelief, ask Jesus to remove it from you.

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Luke 2:11

This Week’s Memory Verse: Luke 2:11 KJV
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

This Week’s Message:
I can remember hearing this verse and memorizing it as a child. I would hear it read in church every Christmas and I loved it. It, of course, didn’t have the full meaning to me then as it does now because as a child I didn’t really understand the amazing truth of what this verse was saying, but today it is a very special verse to me because it tells me that at some point in time God came to earth as a baby to deliver and redeem mankind from the curse of sin and death.
He came down from heaven to be our Savior. He was born of a woman and became man. He was called Christ which means Messiah,and Lord because He is Master of all.
What a wonderful event this was! We should celebrate everyday that Christ was born!

Memorize this verse and give thanks to God saying “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.” Luke 2:14
for Jesus Christ is the Prince of Peace and He, as God incarnate, came to
earth to bring good will toward all who will believe and receive Him as Savior and Lord.
For, “Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” Matthew 1:23
.Hallelujah!

A to Z–Book by Book Scripture Memorization–Jonah 2:9

This Week’s Memory Verse: Jonah 2:9 NKJV
But I will sacrifice to You With the voice of thanksgiving;
I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the LORD.”

This Week’s Message:
Jonah was in repentance for his disobedience to the LORD. He had deliberately disobeyed what the LORD had told him to do and then paid the consequence for his actions.
When he was in the belly of the fish that the LORD had sent to save him from drowning he repented of his disobedience and offered a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD for saving him and he also vowed to the LORD that he would obey in the future, for he acknowledged that his salvation was of the LORD.

We can all learn from the story of Jonah that obedience to the LORD is always necessary. And, by memorizing this week’s verse we can remind ourselves that if the LORD tells us to do something, we had best obey and do it, for otherwise we may not only jeopardize our life but we may also endanger others.
Therefore, this week let’s offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving to the LORD
for His Salvation and let’s  be sure to be obedient to whatever He has told us to do.

Also, we must always be careful in making vows to the LORD, for He does not take what we vow lightly.
He loves us with an everlasting love and He will discipline us if need be to keep us from going astray. So, this verse gives us plenty of food for thought this week.

As we memorize this verse, it would do us all well to read or re-read the book of Jonah, for there are some valuable lessons we can all learn from this short book.
It will be good to share this Jonah story with others who have never read it or heard about it for as we see in the story, the LORD even used Jonah’s disobedience and consequences to cause unbelievers to come to know Him and to call upon Him.

If you would like you can Print the 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

Blessings to you this week as you memorize the word of the LORD, obey what He is telling you through it, and share it with others.

And there is no other God besides Me, A just God and a Savior;
There is none besides Me.
Look to Me, and be saved, All you ends of the earth!

This Week’s Message:
This week’s memory verses are pretty clear in what they say:

  • There is only One God
  • This One God is just
  • This One God is a Savior

Believers, aren’t we glad that we know Him?
Aren’t we glad we have believed and received His salvation?
Now, let’s memorize these verses as a testimony of our faith.

This Week’s Memory Verse: Exodus 15:2 NKJV
The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation;
He is my God, and I will praise Him;

This Week’s Message:
This verse was a song sung by Moses, and the children of Israel after the LORD had parted the Red Sea and delivered them from Pharoah and his army.
Miriam and the women also sang this as they danced and played their timbrels in Exodus 15:21. It was a time of great rejoicing, praising and giving thanks to the LORD
for His protection.and deliverance.

This verse is a great verse for us to memorize and use to sing in praise to the LORD also, for He is our strength. He is our salvation. He is our God, and we should sing and praise Him daily.
God has delivered us believers from the kingdom of darkness into His kingdom of light thru Jesus Christ who is our salvation. Everyday He offers us His strength.
Let’s memorize this verse and sing it to Him daily in praise and thanksgiving!

This Week’s Memory Verse: Ephesians 1:3 NKJV
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

This Week’s Message:

that our God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ has blessed us, not only with salvation which is wonderful in itself, but also with every spiritual blessing!

Believers, have you ever wondered exactly what this verse means? What is “every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ”?
Well, there is a wonderful book written by our Ministry President, Leona J. Atkinson, titled “54 Spiritual Blessings in Christ” as found in the book of Ephesians that tells us exactly what this verse means, it lists all the blessings and how we can apply all these blessings to our lives daily. It is a devotional/journal that would be a wonderful addition to your home library.
You can view it, find more information on it, and if you are so inclined you can order it, on Amazon.com at this link: http://www.smilegodlovesyou.org/store.html
