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

July 2022 Memory Verses

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.

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
