"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

100 Verse Challenge - Week 4

From Dianalovestowrite.blogspot.com:

This week's memory verses are consecutive in the bible, so honestly I recommend you memorize "them" as one verse, but I am listing them separately, because I think the break down may be required for me and mine to get them all in our heads, and more importantly our hearts. So are you ready for this week's verses? Because here they are:

First verse:

If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. Romans 10:9

Second verse:

With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:10

These verses are written in what Morgan refers to as an ABBA pattern. Mouth, heart; heart, mouth - do you see it? Something to keep in mind to help you learn the verses together: mouth confesses, heart believes; heart believes, mouth confesses. Now fill in the rest of the good stuff.

And your "Bonus verse" for all you overachievers, Type A personalities or rule followers like me (feels like a rule to learn the whole "Roman Road:):

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. Romans 10:13
