Verses from August 2021 through July 2022
Each year, in September, we celebrate Labor Day. God wants us to work, and He wants all of our work to be done in a manner that glorifies Him. Our first memory verse for September 2021 teaches us that truth.
Colossians 3:23 - And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men;
If you are a believer, eternally saved by God's grace through faith in the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the most important work you can do is witness to those that do not yet believe. In fact, believers are commanded to give out the gospel. As it was in September of 2020, our 2nd memory verse is one of the versions of the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:19-20 - Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: 20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Our first 2 memory verses as we start our 3rd year of posting memory verses both come from Romans Chapter 8. Paul starts this Chapter with salvation, which is available only through the finished work of Christ on the cross. Salvation places a believer "in" Christ. I can't think of a better place to be. As he closes the chapter, Paul, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, writes some wonderful memory verses, which have been chosen for August of 2021.
The first verse teaches us that ALL things that happen are for the good of the believer. ALL things!
Romans 8:28 - And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
The next verse, verses actually, teaches us that NOTHING can separate us from the love of God, which comes to the believer through Christ Jesus our Lord. NOTHING! So, for the believer, ALL things are for our good and NOTHING can separate us from the love of God! Amazing!
Romans 8:38-39 - For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
