Good Morning Union

It's October 26; Good Morning Union

I had enough responses to yesterday’s GMU about the spiritual discipline of Scripture memorization that I think I will break from my tradition and share this morning a brief description of what I have done.  First, remember it is a discipline. It takes effort. The “blessing” did not normally come from the effort, it came as a result of the effort. The basic idea is two-fold:

I use as many senses as I can
I use repetition in as many forms as I can

“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly…”        Colossians 3:16

“If I rise on the wings of the dawn, If I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.”            Psalm 139:9

“And my God will supply all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:19

Paul is sort of wrapping things up in his wisdom letter to the church in Philippi. Here’s my summary of his summary!

“Finally, my dear friends, whatever is… think on these things.”       Philippians 4: 8,9

“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”  Philippians 4:4

I REALLY like this section of Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi. It’s full of very insightful guidelines for my journey with Jesus. The first it to rejoice—always— let me say that again in case you didn’t get it—REJOICE!! And then he lists several ideas, I’m not sure if they are the result of always rejoicing or just more good advice which includes rejoicing. Either way, they’re good!

“Put on the full armor of God… then pray… then stand!”    Ephesians 6:13-18

“Work out your own salvation…”      Philippians 2:12

It's October 13; Good Morning Union

“… so that no one can boast.”            Ephesians 2:8, 9

As I continued from yesterday I only got two chapters farther along and I found additional help in my quest against boasting—except in Jesus!

“May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.”    Galatians 6:14
