heart hiding, Scripture Memorization

Appearance or Authority? {heart hiding 15/43}


Appearance or Authority? {heart hiding 15/43}  Heart Hiding is hiding God’s Word in our heart by memorizing whole books of Scripture.  To read more go to the Heart Hiding page.

This is Week 43 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10.  How are you doing, my friend?  Don’t be discouraged.  Just keep working at it, and don’t give up.  I can personally testify to God’s faithfulness in this discipline, under the most trying circumstances.  

This is Week 43 of Heart Hiding, memorizing 2 Corinthians 6-10,  where we are memorizing  2 Corinthians chapter 10, verses 7 through 9:

7 Do ye look on things after the outward appearance? if any man trust to himself that he is Christ’s, let him of himself think this again, that, as he is Christ’s, even so are we Christ’s.

8 For though I should boast somewhat more of our authority, which the Lord hath given us for edification, and not for your destruction, I should not be ashamed:

9 That I may not seem as if I would terrify you by letters.

2 Corinthians 10:7-9

Paul  asks the question about judging by his outward appearance or receiving his message based on the authority invested in him by God, for the purpose of their edification.  In other words, he knows the weight of his words, and he knows the Corinthians will better receive them if they recognize it coming from God, not Paul himself.

What a responsibility, to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ in His own Word(s)!

This is the final chapter for 2015 — can you believe it???  Only four weeks left, just nine more verses!!

********Just a note about Scripture Typer, if you are using or considering using it.  Recently the non-mobile version underwent a huge update, which was a tad overwhelming at first.  First, if you have a comment or question, they are great about answering, and quite understanding.  And second, just hang in there until you get used to the new format.  In the long run it will be worth it.

If you have a comment or question, please use the comment box at the end of the post or the contact form at the top of the page.

Don’t forget to review the previous weeks’ verses 🙂  

The key to memorization is review!

Review 2 Corinthians 6:1-18; 7:1-16; 8:1-24; 9:1-15; 10:1-6.

Have a great week working on these verses.  See you next Sunday.  God bless.
