With Easter week half way through, I found myself being challenged to really know God's word. It is easy to sit down and read a verse or two. But, am I applying it? Am I saturing my soul with it? The simple answer was no, and so with my Bible, and journal in hand, I decided to remedy that. My goal is to focus the rest of the year on memorizing the following verses:
But He answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God."
"He who does not love does not know God, for God is love."
1 John 4:8
"But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Against such there is no law."
"For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind."
2 Timothy 1:7
"These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God."
1 John 5:13
What verses have you memorized that comforts you?
