Bible Lessons: Main Points and Memory Verses

The colors are tools used to remind us of God’s word. Scripture referenced is from the NIV version of the Bible.

Monday – Gold To help us develop a greater appreciation for the One True God and His Kingdom.
Memory verse – Psalm 106:1 “Praise the LORD. Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever.”

Tuesday – Dark To give us knowledge of how man was originally created to be and how we fell from grace due to sin and that this sinful condition and the separation from God that it causes is their current condition. And that our greatest need is to be reconnected to God.
Memory verse – Romans 3:23 “for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

Wednesday – Red To help us gain knowledge and understanding of Jesus and the sacrifice of His life for us on the cross. To know that this sacrifice of His life pays in full a debt that we cannot pay ourselves. By doing this, Jesus alone takes care of our greatest need allowing us to get back into a relationship with our Creator God.
Memory verse – Romans 5:8-9 “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Thursday – Clear To help us gain knowledge on how the Holy Spirit comes into the life of a believer and transforms it into a life lead by Christ, transforming our mind and heart into a Christ-like mind and heart so that our attitude and actions become Christ-like.
Memory verse – 2 Corinthians 5:17 “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”

Friday – Green To help us recognize the part we play in our relationship with God and that strengthening that connection with God causes growth in our life and helps us as we serve God by serving others. As we grow, the Holy Spirit will produce fruits in our life, such as more Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.
Memory Verse – 2 Peter 3:18 “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever! Amen”
