Through May 2017 we have a verse each day to read and to meditate on and if you like to commit to memory. At the end of each week in our Evening Services we are going to share what we have learned from the verses we have read. Here are those daily readings.
Words of Eternal Life
I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
A month of Scriptures to meditate on and memorise
MAY 1 Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
MAY 2 Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; your sins have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear.
MAY 3 Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

MAY 5 John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No-one comes to the Father except through me.”
MAY 6 John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.”

MAY 9 Colossians 1:15-17 The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.
What Jesus has done for us
MAY 10 John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

MAY 15 Acts 2:38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptised, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.”

MAY 17 John 10:27-30 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no-one can snatch them out of my hand.

Prayer and faith

MAY 20 John 15:4-5 “Remain me, as I also remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”
