One of the last assignments of the book was to make a commitment to have a quiet time for 30 days. I have a hit or miss quiet time. My pledge to myself and God was to truly meditate on my verses for 2013. I have 4 more verses to memorize chapter 8 of Romans. I will put another plug in for the Scripture Typer. It has helped me with my memorization tremendously!! As I was reviewing my verses with Carl here are his observations on verses 33, 34, and 35-
verse 33-Who shall bring any charges against God's elect? It is God who justifies.
verse 34-Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died-more than that, who was raised-who is at the right of God,who- indeed is interceding for us.
verse 35-Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
Carl shared that these verses are legal terms. Who shall bring charges? Who can condemn? Who shall send you away? If you are a believer, no one!!! What Good News that is!!!
As I memorize scripture, I picture in my mind a cherry life saver that I savor and prolong as I enjoy it. I try to do the same with the verses that I am learning, letting them soak down into my brain and heart. Let the above verse soak into your brain and heart for a minute.
I am looking forward to all that I will learn in my 30 days of quiet times. Stay tuned...
