As I begin this weekly scritpure memorization challenge, I didn’t want to haphazardly pick verses. I wanted a theme – verses that flow together so as I learn them I gain a deeper understanding of a given topic.
I’ve chosen the “Names of God.”
There are hundreds!
This week, the Lord is my ADVOCATE (and, in a bit of a two for one, the Righteous One).
“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”
– 1 John 2:1
“One of our greatest needs as women is to become women of the Word, so that our prayers, our responses, and our words are saturated with God’s way of thinking…Each of us should be able to use the Word effectively, not only in our worship and our own walk, but also in ministering to the needs of others. If we’re going to be women of the Word, we must make a priority of spending time daily in the Scripture – reading, studying, memorizing, meditating, personalizing, and praying it back to God – letting Him teach us His ways.”
