October memory verse!

So, who managed to memorize Psalm 46:10 last month?

This month I've got a doozy for you. It's a fact we all know, but I think most of the time it fails to resonate within us the way it should. The verse for memorization this Romans 5:8. Yes, I did steal this from my son's Awana handbook! So what is Romans 5:8?

"While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Do you understand that? While we were still sinners, He died for us! He didn't die for when we got our act together or because we were perfect people. He died for us while we were screw ups! While we were liars and murderers and thieves! How many humans do you know who would love you even at your very worst? They do exist...but there sure aren't many.

Dwell on that this month. I will post word picture on our Facebook
page each week to keep it in your head. Think about some of the worst things you've done this month and think about how Christ died for you despite those things and how now, because of that sacrifice, they have been washed away!
