Advent 2022!

Hello Friend!

It's Christmas time! 
Let me be one of the first to wish you a Merry Christmas! 

Did you know that incorporating Advent into your Christmas celebration can be a fantastic way to help focus your heart, worship, and celebration on the birth of Christ / His first coming?...which is the reason we celebrate CHRISTmas in the first place!

Advent is a more traditional part of Christmas that is still observed by many as it can be a very meaningful part of your Christmas remembrance. 

This Sunday is the first Sunday of Advent and I wanted to share a free resource with you that I created titled, "Celebrating Advent" 

If you'd like to download your free gift copy in PDF format, please click on the following link:



Have a wonderful Christmas as you celebrate the birth of Christ!

Because He is The reason for the season, Your Brother and Servant in Christ,

November 2022 Memory Verses

My Friend,

For our November scripture memorization, I've suggested Psalm 9:1, 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Psalm 118:28-29, and Psalm 136:1-3, which are just a few of the many that remind us about thankfulness and gratitude to The King Of Kings and Lord of Lords.

As always, I've suggested the ESV version, which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics. I've included those suggestions as I learned many years ago that having at least one theme or topic in mind when you memorize scripture helps you store them in memory and as you have conversations with others in the future, I can guarantee that as those themes/topics come up, the scripture you've memorized will also come to mind and you may share encouragement from God's Word or re-encourage yourself!

May you continue to abide in God's Word through reading, studying, memorization and living it out as vital keys to our growth.

Have fun with scripture Memorization! Don't stress about it! And, as always, be in The Word and stay in The Word!

You're in my prayers and please reach out if you need any tips.
Your Brother and Servant in Christ,
Randolph Koch

October 2022 Memory Verses

My Friend,

For our October scripture memorization, I've suggested Psalms 28:7, Psalm 46:10, Matthew 11:28-30, and Proverbs 3:5-6, as they remind us that our strength and sufficiency, and who we are is found in Him. So, we can cease striving, trust in Him, lean on Him and His understanding instead of ourselves alone. 

As always, I've suggested the ESV version and this month, one from the NASB version (that's the version I originally memorized that verse in. :-) ), which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics.

September 2022 Memory Verses.

My Friend,

For our September scripture memorization, I've suggested John 14:6 and Acts 4:12 as they remind us that there is only One Way that we can be saved and that is through Jesus Christ's finished work on the cross. There are not many pathways to heaven, He is the only way! 



As always, I've suggested the ESV version, which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

 My Friend,

For our August scripture memorization, I've suggested 1 Peter 5:5-6.

This is another key reminder to strive for humility.

As always, I've suggested the ESV version, which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

Thank You God For Another Year!


Hello Friend,
Just a few days ago (The 9th) I was blessed to celebrate Birthday # 52 and I want to simply thank God for the gift of another year to serve Him and His people as I turn another year older and hopefully wiser. :-)
_
Not that I'm worthy but I pray this next year will be a blessing and filled with opportunities to serve and bring Him glory. 

Opportunities to serve His people helping meet spiritual and physical needs as much as possible. Opportunities to live life on purpose together as we strive to seek, serve, and love Him with all that is within us! 
_
I pray this year will be a year of further growth for me and that I'd become more deeply rooted in Him. 
_
I pray that God would somehow use me to help others grow in their relationship with Him and that they'd become more deeply rooted in Christ as well!
_
I pray that He would expand His kingdom and glory through me as I seek to give glory to Him and point people to Him. 
_
I'm truly a nobody who is thankful and blessed to know The Somebody, Jesus Christ. 
_
Many Blessings friend! Thank you for the honor of serving you!

Your brother and servant in Christ, 

Randolph Koch

My Friend,

For our July scripture memorization, I've suggested Galatians 5:1, Galatians 5:13, and 2 Corinthians 3:17.


These are a few of the many about freedom in Christ.

As always, I've suggested the ESV version, which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics.

God Is Faithful and He's Always On Time!

My Friend,

God is never late...He's always on time.

He's beyond time and space and in human terms...His timeline and timing is perfect.

You may have been waiting for an answer to prayer, direction, provision, or numerous things? Maybe you think God is silent, doesn't hear you, or is late to answer? The furthest thing is true! Why? Because He is always at work and speaking through His Word and His Holy Spirit, He always hears your every prayer and knows your every need, and again...He's never late, He's always on time, and He always keeps His promises. 


You just need to be faithful to trust God, trust His perfect will, plan, and timing knowing He doesn't operate on and isn't beholden to our schedules, plans, will, or timeline. 

Please read, study, and take to heart 2 Peter 3:8-9, Psalm 145:13, and Hebrews 10:23 for starters. 

He is faithful, He's always at work even in the waiting, and He is always on time! 

You're in my prayers. 

Your Brother and Servant in Christ,

Randolph Koch

June 2022 Memory Verse

My Friend,

For our June scripture memorization, I've suggested Matthew 18:15-20.




I've broken the passage into three suggested parts because it may be easier to memorize in smaller portions. 

This passage is an important part of addressing sin biblically and conflict resolution as we seek to be biblical peacemakers.

Even if you don't memorize it, I highly recommend that you memorize the reference and then read and study it. 

As always, I've suggested the ESV version, which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics.

I've included those suggestions as I learned many years ago that having at least one theme or topic in mind when you memorize scripture helps you store them in memory and as you have conversations with others in the future, I can guarantee that as those themes/topics come up, the scripture you've memorized will also come to mind and you may share encouragement from God's Word or re-encourage yourself!

May you continue to abide in God's Word through reading, studying, memorization and living it out as vital keys to our growth.

Have fun with scripture Memorization! Don't stress about it! And, as always, be in The Word and stay in The Word!

You're in my prayers and please reach out if you need any tips.

Meeting each day with faith, worship, and prayer.

My Friend, 

Life is hard sometimes and we're reminded in 2 Timothy 3:1-7 that difficult times will come. 

We can be brought to places of deep grief, sorrow, and pain. 

As we grow in Christ, we know we can trust Him as we go through each season. 

We can choose to meet our highest and lowest points of life in worship unto The Lord and faith in Him. 

He is The One Who sustains us and He is the healer of our hearts, minds, and souls. 

Read, study, and take to heart 1 Peter 5:7 Psalm 34:1‭-‬4, Romans 8:18, Romans 5:3–4, James 1:12, John 16:33, Isaiah 43:2, Psalm 23:4. 

Then may you consider turning to Him in faith, worship, and prayer no matter what you face each day because you know He is with you! 

You're in my prayers.

Your brother and servant in Christ, 

Randolph Koch

Here are the memory verses: Isaiah 53:5, Matthew 20:28, Romans 6:23.
As always, I've suggested the ESV version which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

No Past Is Too Dark For The Love And Forgiveness Of Christ.

My Friend,

Everyone has a past and if we're honest, everyone has regrets too. The truth is that we've all missed the mark and fallen short of the glory of God. (Read Romans 3:23, Romans 6:23)

Hear me when I share that nothing you've experienced, no matter what sins you've committed, no matter what, there's nothing that can keep you from the love and the forgiveness of Christ! (Read Romans 8:38-39)

Yes, I know the schemes of the evil one (and possibly others) whose aim is to try and convince you that Jesus' sacrifice isn't enough. That His grace and love isn't enough. That He is not enough, but...satan is a liar!
No matter how dark you think your past and present is - allow Jesus to shine His light upon the darkness by receiving His free gifted of salvation.
Allow your history become HIStory which will then be about His redemption of you, your new life in Him, and then your eternity with Him!
Thanks be to God that He gave His Son Jesus to die in your place as the perfect and complete sacrifice! He is the only way! (Read John 14:6)
Don't allow your past hinder you anymore and instead repent of and confess your sins, believe in faith Jesus died for you and rose again in victory over death and sin, and receive in faith Jesus as your Savior through His free gift of salvation. (Read: Acts 16:31, Romans 10:9-10, 13, 1 John 2:2, John 10:15, and Ephesians 2:8-9)
Put your faith fully in Him and leave your past, present, and future with Him.

You're in my prayers.

Your brother and servant in Christ,
Randolph Koch

March 2022 Memory Verse.

Hello My Friend,

For our March scripture memorization, I've suggested one verse, which you will be familiar with, to remind us of the importance of scripture memorization as we seek to treasure and hide God's Word in our hearts. 

Here is the memory verse: Psalm 119:9-11.
As always, I've suggested the ESV version which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.

You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics. 

I've included those suggestions as I learned many years ago that having at least one theme or topic in mind when you memorize scripture helps you store them in memory and as you have conversations with others in the future, I can guarantee that as those themes/topics come up, the scripture you've memorized will also come to mind and you may share encouragement from God's Word or re-encourage yourself!

May you continue to abide in God's Word through reading, studying, memorization and living it out as vital keys to our growth.

Have fun with scripture Memorization! Don't stress about it! And, as always, be in The Word and stay in The Word!

February 2022 Memory Verses.

Hello My Friend,

For our February scripture memorization, I've suggested a few verses (of the many) for your memorization that are focused some more on love.
 
Here are the suggested memory verses for February: John 13:34-35, 1 John 4:19, 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, 1 Corinthians 13:8-13 (Or feel free research and pick your own.) :-) 
As always, I've suggested the ESV version which is the version I use most often, however, if you have another good word for word translation you enjoy, feel free to memorize it in that version. It's completely up to you.
 
You'll notice that following the verses is a list of some basic themes/topics. I've included those suggestions as I learned many years ago that having at least one theme or topic in mind when you memorize scripture helps you store them in memory and as you have conversations with others in the future, I can guarantee that as those themes/topics come up, the scripture you've memorized will also come to mind and you may share encouragement from God's Word or re-encourage yourself!
 
We're reminded of the importance of God's Word by a question from Psalm 119:9, "How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word" and then in Psalm 119:11 that, "I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you."
 
So how do you "guard your ways according to God's Word" and how do you "store up His Word in your heart?" One way is summed up in these three words: Memorize God's Word! 🙂
 
Abiding in The Word through reading, studying, memorization and living it out are vital keys to our growth.
 
Have fun with it! Don't stress about it! And, as always, be in The Word and stay in The Word!
 
You're in my prayers and please reach out if you need any tips.
Your Brother and Servant in Christ,
Randolph Koch
