Memory Verse

Search the Scriptures

Look for references for each of the following:
  • Promises that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?
  • References that either refer to or infer something about future events.
  • What does this passage teach about Jesus?
  • Commandments that God made and to whom He made them. Do they apply to you?

Putting the Word into Action
It is time to rise up and build. The work is never easy but the needs of the Kingdom are great! One day the New Jerusalem will appear on the New Earth and we will not need to work on its walls. But for now there is a great amount of work to be done. Find your place on the wall and begin to work there. (The opportunities are available for great mission work to be done. Don't let the obstacles keep you from doing the work of the Great Commission, the commandment for building that Jesus gave to us before He returned to Heaven.)

  1. The laborers are few. We need to work on our part and inspire others to do the same. :)


Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
