It’s that time! Yes, on to our next two verses. Please make scripture memory of this chapter your priority. I don’t know you but I can say without a doubt, that these verses will assist you in your walk with Jesus until you see Him face-to-face. I’ve said it so many times but I cannot believe the number of instances that these verses have come to mind and helped guide me, encouraged me, convicted me - you name it!
Also, if you haven’t done so, please go back to the posts from our last two verses. I raised an issue that Keldon replied to and it has given me a fresh outlook on many passages. I know that certain “revelations” are timely for certain individuals but I think it would benefit all of you. That is why your feedback and input is so vital to all of us growing closer to Jesus.
Here the verses in the ESV and NIV. Rather than responding if you are still part of the memorization team, please let us know if you are not going to continue. And if there is anyone out there who would like to jump in or just learn a few of the verses, please let us know. One reason that i put each of you down was to remember each other in prayer. That way, you can see the faces of those you are lifting up. May the Lord bless you in your discipline to learn more of Him!
