Memory verse

 2017

January -- Isaiah 53:4-6

4  Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows;
    yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
5  But he was wounded for our transgressions;  he was crushed for our iniquities;
    upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, 
    and with his stripes we are healed.
6  All we like sheep have gone astray;  we have turned every one to his own way;
    and the LORD has laid on him  the iniquity of us all.


February -- Romans 3:23-24

23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
24  Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:


March -- Romans 4:4-5

4  Now to the one who works, his wages are not counted as a gift but as his due.
5  And to the one who does not work but trusts him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is counted as righteousness


April -- I Corinthians 15:3-4

3  For I delviered to you as of first importance what I also received; that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures,
4  that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures


May -- Galatians 3:13-14

13  Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—
14  so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.

June -- Ephesians 2:4-5

4  But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us,
5  even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ--by grace you have been saved--

July -- Philippians 2:6-8

6  who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped,
7  but made himself nothing, taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.
8  And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

August -- Colossians 1:19-20

19  For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell,
20  and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.

Romans 8:1-39

1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2  For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.
3  For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
4  in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.
5  For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
6  To set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
7  For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.
8  Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9  You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
10  But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11  If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
12  So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live according to the flesh.
13  For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.
14  For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15  For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
16  The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17  and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
18  For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
19  For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God.
20  For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope
21  that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God.
22  For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
23  And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.24  For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees?
25  But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.
26  Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.
27  And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
28  And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
29  For those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be the firstborn among many brothers.
30  And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also justified, and those whom he justified he also glorified.
31  What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
32  He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
33  Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies.
34  Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.
35  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?36  As it is written,
    “For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
          we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
37  No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.
38  For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers,
39  nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
