My wife and I are hosting a marriage conference at our lodge this weekend so I have to fly, but I wanted to get these new verses off to you as a reminder that it’s time to move forward. Sometimes you’ll find some verses are easier to learn than others. What still helps me is, after I get the wording in my head, to recognize the flow of thought. But I cannot encourage us enough to learn these words in our heads and then we find that they migrate to our hearts!
Again, remember, you can do it. It is so much more valuable than learning the lines from the commercials we see and hear. These are not just true words, they are the Word of Truth. Your efforts are so valuable as these truths are eternal.
Romans 8:11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will give life to your mortal bodies also through his Spirit which dwells in you.
Romans 8:12 So then, brethren, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh. (ESV)
Romans 8:11 And if the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you, he who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies because of his Spirit who lives in you.
Romans 8:12 Therefore, brothers and sisters, we have an obligation—but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it.(NIV)
