Remember to memorize and meditate upon our verse from week three:
1 Chronicles 16:27
Splendor and majesty are before Him
Strength and joy are in His place.
Life is tough. How is your strength holding up? How is your joy? I mean, are you able to be content and at peace on the inside even though things may be falling apart all around you? That kind of strength and joy is only possible in an abiding (growing, vibrant, consistent) relationship with God through Jesus Christ. And an abiding relationship, one which is growing, vibrant, and consistent, is available to us only as we invest fully in prayer and time in the Word. Spend time in God's place!
And don't forget to review! Remember, we are going for long term memory. We want you to be able to recall these verses to mind when you need them most....like when Jesus fought off Satan's temptations in the desert! (Check out Luke 4)
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.
But speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ.
