Today’s Envelope Art…
I treasure the Bible, the living Word of God, and highly recommend it
It is transformational and life-giving. Recently I have renewed an interest in Scripture memory and have found it to be healing, one verse at a time.
The Spirit gives life.
The flesh profits nothing.
The words that I speak to you are Spirit
and they are life.
—Jesus Christ, John 6:63
Your words were found, and I ate them,
And Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart;
For I am called by Your name,
O Lord God of hosts.
The Holy Spirit gives gifts to God’s church.You can find lists of these gifts in Romans 12, 1 Corinthians 12, and Ephesians 4. Ephesians 4:12, 13 describes why the Holy Spirit gives gifts to God’s church. The drawing below is to help with memorization of the verse:
[The picture is to help with memorization.]
. . . . . . .[The picture is to help with memorization.]. . . . . . .
…If you have faith as a mustard seed,
you will say to this mountain,
“Move from here to there, and it will move;
and nothing will be impossible for you.
However, this kind does not go out
except by prayer and fasting.
Context of the above verses: Matthew 17:1-20
(Pictures help me memorize)
For this reason we also thank God without ceasing,
because when you received the word of God
which you heard from us,
you welcomed it
not as the word of men,
but as it is in truth,
the word of God,
which also effectively works in you who believe.
1 Thessalonians 2:23, NKJV
