Scripture Memory Verse for December

December 2, 2008

Scripture memory is not just for kids or vacation Bible school. It’s for all disciples who love God’s word and want to grow in the likeness of Jesus Christ. Below is the verse for December in a few translations…

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. NKJV

You know how full of love and kindness our Lord Jesus Christ was. Though he was very rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that by his poverty he could make you rich. NLT

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. NIV

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich. NASB

γινώσκετε γὰρ τὴν χάριν τοῦ κυρίου ἡμῶν Ἰησοῦ Χριστοῦ ὅτι δι᾽ ὑμᾶς ἐπτώχευσεν πλούσιος ὤν ἵνα ὑμεῖς τῇ ἐκείνου πτωχείᾳ πλουτήσητε. TR

Keep hiding God’s word in your heart and you will create a Christ-like crop; you WILL bear good fruit and you WILL grow in Christ-likeness!

    Is love and Grace the same?

    It is love (and) grace. God’s love is expressed in grace…

    For the longest time I was wondering why memorizing verses was so important to keeping a close walk with God, but over this past year I have seen how God can use something that is repeated over and over again in our minds to help us through trials. I have also found that the best way to block out the devil from my thoughts is to focus on scripture in my mind and meditate on it. Thanks Gordon!

    Great comment Adam, We can’t focus on more than one thought at a time. Therefore if we let Scripture occupy our thoughts it will keep us from meditating on what is not good.
