This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Psalm 145:3. This verse says that God is great, and most worthy of praise – that none can fathom His greatness!
Our God is most certainly great, and worthy of praise! He is the One who created the earth – who called forth light in the darkness, who spoke the earth into being, who set life in motion, and made everything we see. All throughout the Bible He did great and mighty things, and still does them in our lives today, if we will ask Him. He has always existed, and always will, yet He knows each of us personally, and wants us to get to know Him.
He does so much for us. He gave His Son so that we could have eternal life, and a relationship with Him. He love us, regardless of the mistakes we have made. He accepts us as His children. He gives each of us many blessings, some of which we don’t even recognize, and often forget to thank Him for.
Take some time to praise God today for who He is, and what He has done for you. Give thanks to Him!
This week’s memory verse for Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is Romans 6:23. This verse states that the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ.
None of us are righteous in and of ourselves (Romans 3:10). We all have sinned (Romans 3:23), and the wages of sin is death. God is just, and He must punish sin. He loved us so much, however, that He sent Jesus to take all of our sins upon Himself, bearing the punishment of death that should have been ours. He gave His life for us at the cross, that we might be saved.
Because of what He has done for us, all who believe in Him will not perish, but have eternal life (John 3:16). We can’t do anything to earn or deserve this eternal life. It is the gift of God, given to us freely. Our part is to simply receive this gift, trusting in Jesus as our one and only Savior.
Though the wages of sin is death, Jesus bore the punishment that we deserved, giving His life for us at the cross. Because He has done this, eternal life is freely offered to all who believe in Him. Receive God’s gift of eternal life, given to you in Christ!
