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.

Scripture Memorization–Enduring To The End–Week 3

This Week’s Memory Verse:
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 NKJV

In John chapter 10 Jesus was telling the people who He was. He said He was the Door, the Good Shepherd, the Christ and even said He was God (John 10:30). He said He came into the world to bring life to His sheep, a more abundant life.

He also told them who He wasn’t. He spoke about the thief who is just the opposite of Him.  The thief is often thought to be satan, but it could also be the world or the flesh, anything that steals, kills and destroys.

Therefore, this is a good end times verse to memorize, for there are, and will be times, when we need to remember that we have an enemy, but that we also have a Savior who came to give us abundant life here on earth and eternally. He is our Door, our Good Shepherd, Christ the Messiah, our Savior, and God Incarnate. Son of God and Son of Man. We need to focus on what we have been given in Christ and not let the
thief steal our joy, kill our witness or destroy our faith.

Let’s read John 10:10 this week and give thanks that we are His sheep who know His voice and look forward to His soon return.

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.

If you would like you can Print the memory 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 benefit from it also.

Blessings to you daily

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–Jude 1:20-21

This Week’s Memory Verse:  Jude 1:20-21 NKJV
But you, beloved, building yourselves up on your most holy faith,
praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.

This Week’s Message:
In this Week’s Memory Verse Jude is speaking to believers, reminding them to remain in the true faith of which they had first been taught because, he is saying, False Teachers have crept in among them, people who are not true believers, but who say they are, and who are causing many to go astray from the truth.

In this week’s verse Jude is telling true believers to build themselves up
(strengthen their belief in order to stand strong) in the most holy faith (the true faith of which they had first been taught).

He is telling them to:

  • pray in the Holy Spirit
    (praying in the Spirit strengthens and uplifts believers–it is also an effective tool in warfare)
  • keep themselves in the love of God
    ( stay true to the One True God, be obedient to Him, read His word, follow His teaching, so as not be led astray by false teaching)
  • look for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life
    (look for the return of Christ who is our Savior and soon coming King in whom we have the hope of eternal life)
    (Please take note—Jude is speaking of the Trinity here–Holy Spirit, God, Jesus Christ.)

So, this week let’s memorize this verse as a reminder to ourselves, as true believers, of what we should be doing daily.

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.

This Week’s Memory Verse:
And this is the testimony: that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. 1 John 5:11 NKJV

This Week’s Message:
“And this is the testimony” John says “that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son”

John, one of the disciples who walked and talked with Jesus here on earth, is sharing his testimony. He is saying that in Jesus we have eternal life.

We all have a choice to believe this as truth and receive Jesus as our Savior, or we can reject this and choose to believe there is some other way to eternal life.
All of us have free will. All of us need to make the choice before we die.
The scriptures are very clear that Jesus is the only Way to eternal life.
It is God’s hope that all would believe this truth and receive eternal life in His Son, however some choose not to.

This week let’s memorize this verse and rejoice that we who believe have received eternal life in Jesus.
Let’s also share this verse with others so they may have the chance to hear the truth and to choose eternal life.
Let’s also pray for those who hear and choose not to believe, that they may make the right choice before it’s too late.

Blessings to you as you memorize His word and walk with Him daily.

Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him,
rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.

This Week’s Message:
As a believer, how do I “walk in Christ Jesus”?
Well, first of all, you have to acknowledge Jesus as your Lord.
He is not only your Savior, He is also your Lord, which means He is in control of your life.  So, walking in Him, would mean following Him daily, putting aside your will and doing His will.
Rooted in Him, means He is your foundation, He is your source, all you do is done through Him.
Built up in Him and established in the faith, means daily you grow stronger in the faith, because of His power and wisdom in you.
In all of this, you should abound in thanksgiving daily for what you have received in Him and who you are becoming in Him.

So, this week memorize this verse as a reminder to daily “walk in Christ Jesus the Lord”
As you do, you will be amazed at how blessed, fruitful, and joyful your life will become.

Nuggets of Truth–Scripture Memory Verse-A

Gold AThis Week’s Memory Verse:
As far as the east is from the west,
So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
Psalm 103:12 NKJV

 

This Week’s Message:
Believers, once we believed and received Jesus as our Savior, our sins were removed from us forever, never to return, never to be remembered–gone as if they never were. Memorize this verse to remind yourself daily, that in Christ you have been forgiven.

Barnes’ Notes on Psalms 103:12
As far as the east is from the west – As far as possible; as far as we can imagine. These are the points in our apprehension most distant from each other, and as we can conceive nothing beyond them, so the meaning is, that we cannot imagine our sins could be more effectually removed than they are. The literal meaning of the Hebrew is, “like the distance of the east from the west” or, “like its being far.”
So far hath he removed our transgressions from us – That is, he has put them entirely away. They are so removed that they cannot affect us any more. We are safe from all condemnation for our sins, as if they had not been committed at all. Compare the notes at Isaiah 43:25; notes at Isaiah 44:22.
