Faith Walk

A tree gives glory to God by being a tree. For in being what God means it to be it is obeying Him. The more a tree is like itself, the more it is like Him.

The life of Jesus is bracketed by two impossibilities:
a virgin’s womb and an empty tomb.

Jesus entered our world through a door marked “No Entrance”
and left through a door marked “No Exit.”

And for all who feel it is impossible
to overcome the situations facing them,
sickness, death, divorce, persecution,
loneliness, despair, addictions,
Jesus stands at the human door
marked “No Way” and knocks.

-Peter Larson

Forgiveness is not an optional equipment in the Christian life. We are commanded to forgive because we’ve been forgiven.

To forgive others means we give up the right to punish them. We no longer hold the offenses against them.

Charlie’s Bible Memorization Plan

I have hidden your word in my heart
that I might not sin against you.

Psalm 119:11

One of the Goals I’ve set this year is to memorize scripture. I have not formed the details of it yet to make it more realistic. I’ve seen many Bible Memorization Plans but most of them I will not look twice because it is not very encouraging to the faint hearted. 🙂  Thankfully, I found Charles Hayward’s Bible Memorization Plan from Our Daily Bread. It is highly customizable (It’s only now that I found out that there is such a word :P). These are the mechanics:

  1. Choose at least one verse from each Old Testament Book (39 verses).
  2. Choose at least one verse from each New Testament Narrative Book (6 verses).
  3. Choose a verse or verses from each Chapter of the New Testament Epistles (121 verses)

That’s a minimum of 166 verses. But I doubt if one will ever stop at just 166. The scripture is the Word of God. Once it speaks to you, I doubt if you will ever forget those spoken words. And I think I’ll add another rule.

  • No cheating. Do not include verses you’ve already memorized.

So there. Care to join me in my quest? O God, please help me not procrastinate. 😉

Building on What You’ve Been Given

2 Peter 1:5-7: So don’t lose a minute in building on what you’ve been given, complementing your basic faith with good character, spiritual understanding, alert discipline, passionate patience, reverent wonder, warm friendliness, and generous love, each dimension fitting into and developing the others.
