Siesta Scripture Memory Team 2015: Verse 15!

If you are unable to watch the video, here is Beth’s message:


Hey girls! You have to know I really love you if I’m going to get on here with all this sunscreen, and with all this sweat, and in the middle of all this beach goings on. But I do love you and want to keep my commitment to you and to the Lord Jesus, and make sure that you know I am still with you in the scripture memory.


I am still memorizing out of the book of Ephesians and I’m in the most interesting verse in Ephesians 4:20. Right before it in verse 19, Paul is talking about the fact that there are people that give themselves over to the flesh. They give themselves over to greed, to callousness of heart, and to every kind of impurity. But he says something in verse 20 that I think is so profound. Ephesians 4:20 says, “But that is not the way you learned Christ.” And I thought about all the opportunities we have for that verse, when someone’s been unloving to us, unkind, or we really want so much to be ugly back to somebody. We’re reminded over and over again “but that is not the way we learned Christ.” That is not what He taught us to do.


I cannot think of a limit to the opportunities that we would have to tuck that verse in our hearts, to be able to say I know better than this. This is not the way I learned Christ. When I depart into the flesh, when I know that I am in an area, maybe even a gray area, maybe it’s not all the way in the ditch, just a gray area. But I can say to myself that’s not the way I learned Christ. I know how I learned Christ. I know what He calls for from me.

Ephesians 4:20 (ESV) But that is not the way you learned Christ.


We learned Christ in the love and grace and mercy of God the Father who gave Him in our behalf. I’m just crazy about you. Stay with it. It is August 1st and it is a glorious time to celebrate what God has already done in 2015! Have a great day everybody and make sure to put in your verses!

    (13) Then little children were brought to Jesus
    for him to place his hands on them. And pray for them.

    for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
