MEMORY VERSE Revelation 17:14 (NIV)

I'm joining Siesta Mama, Beth this week with her memory verse and will be memorizing the same verse from Revelation. Beth commented in her post she chose Revelation 17:14 "because one of the commentators I’m studying, W. Hendriksen, Th.D., who wrote a 1939 classic called More Than Conquerors, says the entire Book of Revelation can be summed up in that one verse." Sounds good to me! Here's my newest memory verse:

"They will make war against the Lamb, but the Lamb will overcome them because He is Lord of lords and King of kings--and with Him will be His called, chosen and faithful followers." Revelation 17:14 (NIV)

John 10:11

I have been enriched and empowered through memorizing Scripture each week this past year. As another week is upon us, I have selected a Scripture from the book of John, Chapter 10. This entire chapter is about The Shepherd and His Flock.

My memory verse this week is Jesus speaking,
John 10:11 (NIV)

"I am the good shepherd.
The good shepherd lays down
his life for the sheep."
In my husband, Kirk, and my bedroom, on the wall next to our bed is a picture (above) of The Good Shepherd, OUR Good Shepherd. This picture was in Kirk's bedroom growing up as a child and continues to adorn the walls of his bedroom to this day. My memory verse is in honor of my Jesus, my Good Shepherd and is a reminder that we are His sheep, He is our Shepherd and He laid down His life for us!

John 10:11 is for my *20*09* personal challenge
