SPIRITUAL SUNDAY. . .SCRIPTURE MEMORY MONDAY/MARCH!




I noticed that I had already memorized 2 parts of I Peter 1, so I was looking in that chapter and was drawn to verses 24-25, thinking of Spring, but realizing how "the word of the Lord stands forever", not changing like the seasons. But then I couldn't take those verses out of context. I looked back at the previous verses.




I am going to work on verses 17-25 this month, before Easter.



I Peter 1: 17-25NIV

Since you call on a Father who judges each man's work impartially,
live your lives as strangers here in reverent fear.
For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers,
but with the precious blood of Christ,
a lamb without blemish or defect.
He was chosen before the creation of the world,
but was revealed in these last times for your sake.
Through him you believe in God,
who raised him from the dead and glorified him,
and so your faith and hope are in God.
Now that you have purified yourselves by obeying the truth
so that you have sincere love for your brothers,
love one another deeply,
from the heart.
For you have been born again,
not of perishable seed,
but of imperishable,
through the living and enduring word of God.
For,
"All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever."
