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"

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
