1 TIMOTHY 1:12 - Berean Lamp Memory Verse - (May 23-30)
The Berean Lamp Memory Verse for this week is:
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service” (1 Timothy 1:12).
Last week, we looked at Communion as representing a marriage covenant between Christ and His Church, where Christ promises to provide for, protect, and nourish His Church. Today, in this Memory Verse study, we're continuing our look at Communion and its representation of our marriage relationship with Christ - this time with an emphasis on our responsibility and faithfulness to Jesus in that relationship.
In all our work and labor in this life, may we seek to bring honor and praise to our Christ Jesus. Even so, Amen.
