A Great Week To Start

I was delighted yesterday morning when a young lady came up to me before the service and said, “Our whole family is ready to say the Fighter verse for the week.  We are hoping you are going to ask if there is anyone who wants to say it, because we do.”  I told her I’d go one step better – that I’d call on them to bless the congregation.  What a joy and inspiration to see a whole family – mom, and dad, and a bevy of young children – get up and bless the congregation with Scripture.

This is one of the best things I think we do at Calvary Community Church: encourage the storing up of God’s Word in your heart.  And one of the ways we do this is through our Fighter Verse Memory program.

If you’ve thought that memorizing Scripture is just too difficult, and it has kept you from trying, the next two weeks are a perfect time to start a new habit, because the verse for each week is just a sentence.

Hey, anybody can memorize a sentence.

Here is the passage for this week:

Prov. 15.1   A soft answer turns away wrath,

but a harsh word stirs up anger.

Remember, if you attend Calvary, you can always purchase a Fighter Verse packet at our resource table.  Or, you will find it at the bottom of every web page on our website.  Or, you can order them at Desiring God ministries.

Give it a try – I know at least one family that would testify you’ll be glad you did.

  1. I was one of those people that didn’t see the need to memorize, but over the past several months God has used those Fighter verses to help me get through some difficult times. I’m grateful for a church that actively promotes memorizing.
