Monday Morning Memory Verse

Each week my intention is to post a Monday Morning Memory Verse. You will see that all week at the top right column under Weekly Memory Verse. I will attempt to do this Sunday evening, so you early birds can actually see the post on Monday morning. Otherwise, it should be called the Monday Mid-Day or Much Later Memory Verse!

Yesterday, our pastor preached on 1 Timothy 6: 11-16, as part of a continuing series through the book of 1 Timothy. In the evening, hubby led one of the adult small groups, where we dig deeper into the passage from that morning's sermon.

Now that I'm an official blogger (all of 11 days!), I naturally thought that pulling my memory verses for Denitra's Den from our sermon and small group study would be an awesome thing to do!

So, the verses that struck me most yesterday were 1 Timothy 6:11 & 12.

But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses.

Fight the good fight! Run the race of the Christian life with the goal of the finish line in heaven. A good reminder as we enter this new year and are still resolving to do new things, break old habits and begin afresh.
