Memory Verse of the Week

Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.
(1 John 4:8 ESV)

Romans 5 (ESV)

Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God.Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope,and hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.

For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person—though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die— but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Since, therefore, we have now been justified by his blood, much more shall we be saved by him from the wrath of God. 10 For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life. 11 More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.

12 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all sinned— 13 for sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law.14 Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sinning was not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.

15 But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man’s trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift by the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many. 16 And the free gift is not like the result of that one man’s sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brought justification.17 For if, because of one man’s trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.

18 Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men. 19 For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous. 20 Now the law came in to increase the trespass, but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, 21 so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness leading to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

  1. Romans 5:5 “…God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.”

    Romans 5:8 “…God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

    How amazing is it that we have been justified by faith through Jesus Christ? How amazing is it that we have access to God’s grace by faith? How amazing is it that because God’s love has been poured into our hearts, we not only can rejoice in hope of the glory of God but we can rejoice in our sufferings?

    Talk about love!

    Is it any wonder we struggle understanding and receiving God’s grace and love? We know ourselves. We know who we really are. We know our struggles and shortcomings. And yet, in the midst of that, Christ died for us.

    I love what Jesus said in Luke 5:31-32, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance.”

    I’m reminded of the Chris Tomlin song Amazing Love where he writes,

    “Amazing love, how can it be?
    That you, my king would die for me
    Amazing love I know it’s true
    Its my joy to honor you
    In all I do I honor you

    God’s love is truly amazing.

    1. I’m sorry you’re having a bad week and feel like God passes over you.

      I would like to speak with you about this. I’ll contact you and setup a time to talk about this.

      In the meantime, I’m praying for you.

    2. I’m praying for you Bonnie that the LORD does something special just for you so that you don’t feel passed over but know He is right there with you. See you Friday for ‘Bagels with Bonnie’ before our Friday morning Bible Study. Jesus loves you very much. Great things come out of our ‘desert experiences’. Sometimes we have to go through the dry spells first before the times of refreshing.
