Scripture Memory Verse #6

It's time for Scripture Memory Verse #6!!

This round I have chosen Philippians 3:10-11 (Amplified Version)

"[For my determined purpose is] that I may know Him [that I may progressively become more deeply and intimately acquainted with Him, perceiving and recognizing and understanding the wonders of His Person more strongly and more clearly], and that I may in that same way come to know the power outflowing from His resurrection [which it exerts over believers], and that I may so share His sufferings as to be continually transformed [in the Spirit into His likeness even] to His death, [in the hope]

That if possible I may attain to the [spiritual and moral resurrection [that lifts me] out from among the dead [even while in the body]."

I chose this verse because I want the primary focus in my life to be to KNOW CHRIST. To know Him is to love Him.....and to love Him is to be transformed into His likeness. People who love each other spend time with each other, and I want to start each day by hanging out with Jesus.

Hey there! Thanks for checking in. I didn't get it all done, but I'm still going to work on it. I memorized 8-12 and feel strong about that; 13-15 is shaky, but 16 is strong. A little work and I'll be there.

I never would have attempted that had it not been for you. So, thanks!

And, I see from your blog that we've chosen from the same book and chapter this time. I picked Philippians 3:8-9.

It had caught my eye when I was looking for something else and then Paige ended her post on Beth's blog with it. I saw it twice within 10 minutes. I figured that was my cue!

This has been such a great thing for me to do. I've really enjoyed memorizing my verses.

Well, thanks again. Good luck to you as well!
