Memory Verse - (June 19-26)
Our Memory Verse for this week comes from the Sermon on the Mount where Jesus is speaking about our focus, the light of our eyes, and what we treasure in life. What we focus on is what our eyes gaze towards - this is the treasure of our hearts. May we each pray that Jesus would be the focus in our lives, that the Holy Spirit would testify in us and through us a simple and pure devotion to Christ and that we would not resist His direction nor shy from His conviction. May He inspire us to a deeper understanding of the Gospel and a deeper commitment in our witness to the world as His lights.
