— This week’s fighter verse begins at 0:54 in the video —

And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7

What do you do with crucial information, necessary truth, beautiful ideas?

– You make yourself very aware of it – you make it a part of your life.
– You teach it – especially to people who are important to you, like your children.
– You talk about it everywhere; you keep it on your mind at all times of the day.

God’s commandments – the truth’s necessary for intimacy with him and your own salvation, what will you do with them?

Make them a part of your life. Teach them to your children. Walk in the Truth

Deuteronomy 6:4-5

===

“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.”

Deuteronomy 6:4-5

You are human. Is it possible to love the LORD your God with all your heart, soul and might?

The answer is no. You are still being sanctified. You are still sinful.

But two things are true if you are saved by God:
1. You should make this your goal.
2. One day, in heaven, you SHALL love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might.

Deuteronomy 6:4-5

This week’s Fighter Verse begins at 0:40.

===


Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

Ephesians 4:31-32

How should we talk to each other – Those in our church, our family, our workplace?

With
kindness
tenderheartedness
forgiveness

And with no
bitterness
wrath
anger
clamor
slander
malice

But how can we do that? Because sometimes we feel bitter or wrathful and we want to make a clamor in how we respond to someone.

We can do that through the grace of knowledge that you have been forgiven of all of your sins by Christ.
The same Christ who died for you.

Speak to others in that knowledge. Speak as someone who has Jesus as your savior.

Ephesians 4:29

2-13 Application for Apr 1-2, 2017 :: Ephesians 4:29

===

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Ephesians 4:29

Notice Paul says “No corrupting talk.” He didn’t say, “Allow very little
corrupting talk”. He means none.

And then he gives a helpful explanation of the right kind of talk:
Talk that build others up
Words that fit the occasion
Ideas that give grace to others.

“As fits the occasion” says that words that are helpful or correct or wise in one situation aren’t helpful, correct or wise in another. They may in fact be corrupting.

So be careful in what you say! Give grace, not corruption.

Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.

Psalm 86:11

Direction is important. God’s will is important. Obedience is important.

We should want to go the way God wants us to go.

Pray for this kind of wisdom

Psalm 86:11

===

For seven weeks we’re memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

This week’s verse starts at 3:21 in the video.

===

Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!

Bless the LORD, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will!

Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!

Psalm 103:20-22

Who should bless the LORD?
All the Angels.
All his hosts.
All his ministers who do hiw will
All his works.
In all places of his dominion.

Are you in at least one of those groups? Are you one of his works? Are you one of his ministers?

Then bless the LORD! He’s given you so many reasons to bless him.

Be like King David at his wisest – Tell your soul to bless the LORD!

Psalm 103:1-4

===

For seven weeks we’re memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

This week’s verse starts at 2:45 in the video.

===

But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting on those who fear him, and his righteousness to children’s children, to those who keep his covenant and remember to do his commandments. The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.

Psalm 103:17-19

God’s love. God’s righteousness.

Who are they for?

Those who keep his covenant.
Those who remember to do his commandments.

Can a human do that? Yes, by the grace of God, who gives us his righteousness.

Can God make that true for us? Can we trust Him?

Yes, we can. Because this is the God who is over every other King. This is the God who has established his own throne in the heavens.

This God can do anything.

New CD! Set 2!

It’s here! It’s finished and ready to help you memorize the Word of God.

After more than a year of preparation, we’ve finally finished the fifth Fighter Verse Song CD – Set 2.

Go to the Amazon page for Set 2
Go to the downloadable songs.

It includes passages from Psalms (all of Psalms 103 and 91), Proverbs (the name of the LORD is a strong tower), 2 Corinthians (For this Light Momentary Affliction is preparing for you …), Romans (Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved), and John 3:16! And many, many more. A total of 34 songs and almost an hour of music.

Here’s the video of one of the a capella songs from the CD.

And here are some of the nice things people have said about the CD.

We love the Fighter Verse CD … wow – it is fantastic and we have incorporated listening to your CD into our curriculum.         Thank you for sharing your musical gifts for God’s glory and for blessing His church – Harriet

And I also want to thank the team of people who put together the latest fighter verse songs. I actually got the CD from them and tried it out this week with Isaiah 40 verse 8 and it worked! I just kept singing it: The grass withers, the flower fades but the word of our God will stand forever … I got the tune in my head!

And so I’m just so thankful that we as our church, with … our fighter verse songs, we are a church that is committed to getting the word in front of our people to be Word-filled, Word-saturated – Jason Meyer – Pastor, Bethlehem Baptist Church

You’ll be well served by this bright collection of well-produced songs!!! Great for anyone who wants to draw closer to Christ in any/every circumstance. Great soundtrack for times of quiet reflection, energized work(out), focused meditation/study – Pete

Once again, I cannot emphasize enough how helped we have been by the fighter verse songs CDs. To families with young children….play these CDs when you drive!! What better way to do Deut. 6:4-7 which is on the CD😊. You will never regret hiding these songs in you and your children’s hearts. My kids are 18, 16, &14 and they know their fighter verses, at least the ones we listened to and they are thankful for knowing them. This CD has songs for the entire chapters of psalm 91 and 103. By listening repeatedly, you’ll learn entire chapters and like us say, thank you Lord! – Gina

all-cds

As I say, Set 2 is the last of the five CDs, so now we have available all five of the Fighter Verse sets of songs. It’s a total of 182 songs with 529 verses from 30 Books of the Bible! It’s been an exciting and rewarding project.

I hope you get a hold of one of the CDs (or two or three) and listen and learn the Word of God.

2-9 Application for Mar 4-5, 2017 :: Psalm 103:15-16

===

For seven weeks we’re memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

This week’s verse starts at 2:24 in the video.

===

As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.

Psalm 103:15-16

This is sobering, isn’t it?

Our time on earth is very short. We shouldn’t think so highly of ourselves to think we are like God.

As mortals, we are more like grass than like God. And we’ll be forgotten soon.

But there is good news for the believer – for those in Christ.

We just heard it: God crowns us with steadfast love and mercy. Our diseased will be healed.

God’s steadfast love is forever. His healing is forever. His gospel is forever.

And the gospel isn’t for grass. It’s for us!

2-8 Application for Feb 25-26, 2017 :: Psalm 103:11-14


===

For seven weeks we’re memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

This week’s verse starts at 1:41 in the video.

===

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.

Psalm 103:11-14

As far as the heavens are above the earth.
As far as the east is from the west.

That’s pretty far. It’s another way of saying “All the way”
That’s how much he loves us.
That’s how much he takes away our sin.

And how does much compassion does he have for us mere humans?
Compassion like a father.

This God, the one created the universe and is eternal and holy, He is not impersonal. He is not distant.

Worship this God.
