A Sweet Savour and Heart Hiding {Week 21}


This is the second of two  Heart Hiding posts this week.  By the calendar it is Week 33.  I am running just a tad behind, but that’s okay.  I am enjoying Paul’s letter to Corinth.  I’m working on Week 25 — getting caught up in my posting!

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 21 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.  Week 21 is the first part of Paul’s telling the believers at Corinth that they (and we) are a sweet savour of Christ, as instruments through which God shows forth his knowledge to the world.

Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place.

For we are unto God a sweet savour of Christ, in them that are saved, and in them that perish:

2 Corinthians 2:14-15

He also says to give praise (thanks) to God, and that we cannot fail (“always causeth us to triumph”) in Christ.  What a precious promise!

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

How about you?  Do you know that you are a sweet savour of Christ to God?  Do you have confidence in Christ’s power?   Are you thankful to God?

The heart hiding {Scripture Memorization} page was updated recently.  You may want to check it out.  It is located  under the BIBLE tab, which is under the WORSHIP tab, which is just below the header (WordWorks).  The heart hiding page now has every heart hiding post linked to it, so that you no longer have to scroll through them all (and wait for them to load).

If you have a moment to share with others how God is using His Word in your life,

we would all be blessed and encouraged.  

This is Week 21 of Heart Hiding, Scripture memorization, which will be posted on Sundays throughout 2014.   In case you missed  the previous posts, you can find them here:

 

An Open Door and Heart Hiding {Week 20}


This is the first of two  Heart Hiding posts this week.  By the calendar it is Week 33.  I am running just a tad behind, but that’s okay.  I am enjoying Paul’s letter to Corinth.  I’m working on Week 25 — getting caught up in my posting!

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 20 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.  Week 20 is Paul’s explanation of why his travel plans changed.  Paul was dependent upon God, as we ought to be also, for an open door of opportunity.   Here Paul found an open door and a restlessness in his spirit.

Furthermore, when I came to Troas to preach Christ’s gospel, and a door was opened unto me of the Lord,

I had no rest in my spirit, because I found not Titus my brother: but taking my leave of them, I went from thence into Macedonia.

2 Corinthians 2:12-13

What a great lesson! When God opens a door, walk through it.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

How about you?  Do you look for opportunities where God has opened a door for you?  Do you pray that He will provide opportunities?  Do you ask Him to show you where He would have you go?

Forgiveness and Heart Hiding {Week 19}


This is the second of two  Heart Hiding posts this week.  By the calendar it is Week 32.  I am running just a tad behind, but that’s okay.  I am enjoying Paul’s letter to Corinth.  I’m working on Week 24 — getting caught up in my posting!

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 19 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.  Week 19 is Paul’s policy on forgiveness.  It’s not written as a command, but certainly an example.  It is unconditional.

To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ.

Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

2 Corinthians 2:10-11

What a great example to us of forgiveness!  Not only are we to forgive, but if we follow Paul’s example we will forgive those whom others (not everyone, these were fellow believers in the church at Corinth) forgive, simply for their benefit, not our own.  Now there’s a ‘new’ concept!

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

How about you?  Does forgiveness come easily to you?  Do you find it easy to forgive those whom others have forgiven?  What command does Jesus give concerning forgiveness?
