Siesta Scripture Memory Team: Verse 14!

If it weren’t Scripture memory day, I wouldn’t have posted this fast after yesterday’s entry for anything on earth. If you didn’t get a chance to read Melissa’s post “Oh, Yes, Jesus Loves Me,” enter your memory verse here but be sure and go back and read the previous one. It was true ministry in every sense of the word. Thank you, Lis.

OK, Scripture Memory Team! Well, as it turns out for all of us, we really did need these verses this year, didn’t we? I’ve had a season I wasn’t expecting, packed with many challenges, concerns, and fears but, praise His glorious Name, it’s also been packed with a whole lot of Jesus. And that’s what I want, Girlfriend. More than anything on earth. Perhaps you’ll be able to tell from my selection this time that I am, once again, working on something in particular. I’m not just looking to memorize, Sister. I’m looking to change. Scripture memory alone will just make you arrogant. Lapping up those Scriptures like they are the only spring in your desert will make you different.

I’m doing two in tandem:

“I have resolved that my mouth will not sin.” Psalm 17:3b NIV

“Set a guard over my mouth, O Lord; keep watch over the door of my lips.” Psalm 141:3 NIV

I love you. Stay with it, Siestas!

    What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is whithout clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well: keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? In the same way, faith by itself, if it is notaccompanied by action, is dead.
    But someone will say, "You have faith; I have deeds." Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by what I do. You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that – and shudder.
