Building the House in 2019

Instructions

In 2018 we cleared the ground with a year long fast. In 2019 we will build the house on the Rock of God's Word. Each month we will receive one building block (i.e. a Scripture passage) and we will memorize the passage so deeply that it will sink down into the depths of our soul.

  

Building Blocks 1 -3

2 Corinthians 5:17 (March)

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.


Matthew 22:37-38  (February)

37 Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment.

* Based on Deuteronomy 6:5


Psalm 1:1-3 (January)

Blessed is the man

1 Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,

Nor stands in the path of sinners,

Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord,

And in His law he meditates day and night.

3 He shall be like a tree

Planted by the rivers of water,

That brings forth its fruit in its season,

Whose leaf also shall not wither;

And whatever he does shall prosper.

2019 Prayer from New Year's Eve Teaching

 Lord, form me into the shape you designed for me.

 What needs to be cut away, cut it.

What needs to be sanded down, sand it.

What needs to be polished up, polish it.

As my form becomes acceptable to you, animate me, Gracious God.

Breath into me, 

Inspire me, 

Move me,

So that I may be truly your creation: A being of life. So be it. Amen.
