“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.” - 2 Peter 3:18

It has been so encouraging to see how God has blessed, as we have been intentional in reading and memorizing His Word this past year! 

We want to continue to build into our lives this discipline of feeding on God’s Word, for our good and His glory.  In 2015, we focused on the grand teachings of Romans 8.  For the coming year, we will focus on the words of Jesus as recorded in John chapter 15.  Let us press on to grow in our faith, as we learn to abide in Him and bear fruit for the glory of God.

1. Read all the way through the Bible systematically.

2. Meditate upon and memorize John, chapter 15.

Even if you have difficulty memorizing verses, God will bless your investment of meditating on each verse daily. View the memorization schedule for focusing on the 27 verses of this chapter and print the weekly verses that can be cut out.

WOW 2015 Report

Jan Yancey, an Apostles member, let us know that she had memorized all of Romans chapter 8, and she recited it for us (and a camera crew!) on December 9, 2015. She was quick to give the Holy Spirit every bit of the glory in helping her accomplish this. We hope that it will be a blessing and an encouragement to you as you memorize!
