Last day for Isaiah 7:14 – did you get it memorized?


This past week we had the pleasure to study and reflect on Isaiah 7:14 (below). This verse speaks very clearly to the coming messiah, which is what we celebrate this time of year with the holiday “Christmas.” 
 
I hope that you were able to give this verse some thought. If so, what did you learn? What stood out to you about this passage? Why is it significant that his name is called Immanuel?
 

Isaiah 7:14 (ESV)

Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. 
Take a few moments to reflect on this verse, then spend some time sharing your observations in the comments. I look forward to discussing this with you!
 
Stop by tomorrow for another verse from the Old Testament that prophesied the coming Messiah. 

A Lamp to My Feet Reminder – Psalm 1:1-3


Today is the last day of the first “memory verse challenge” here. The weekly passages are posted on Monday and conclude on Sunday. During the week you are encouraged to meditate on the verse each day, even throughout each day, so that it is not just a memory game but something that can become a part of you. This week we focused on Psalm 1:1-3:

Psalm 1:1-3 (ESV)

1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
2 but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.
3 He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.

If you participated this week please comment to this post or the original post letting all of us know how you did with the verse. Were you able to memorize it? What did you learn this week from meditating on it? Did anything stand out to you? Did you do any type of study on the verse? If you have no idea what this is about read the original announcement here and subscribe to future passages.

I look forward to hearing how you did!
