Bible memory verses for our children and grandchildren are so important for a variety of reasons. One that is especially important during the season of Lent is to give them wise words to use to share the Good News of Jesus' precious gift of salvation with friends.
A young friend and I were discussing this last week. He shared his favorite verse for just this purpose, John 14:14, and I shared my favorite, Romans 10:9. We thought combining the two would be a great Word-Filled Wednesday to share with YOU and your Sandwich Generation family.
Jesus said, "You may ask Me for anything in My Name and I will do it.
If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God rased Him from the dead, you will be saved.
What's your favorite Bible verses for sharing with others – children or adults? We'd love to know. Also, don't forget, you can find more encouraging and comforting Bible verses and pictures at Internet Cafe Devotions on this Word-filled Wednesday. Wait til you see Amy's lovely April calendar for your computer wallpaper! Those can be a great way to share encouraging Bible verses with your children and grandchildren without ever saying a word.
P.S. Do your grandchildren or children have a good Bible? If you are looking for one, you might want to consider this NIV Adventure Children Bible – geared for ages 9-12. My grandkids love theirs. It has the full NIV version of the Bible, along with colorful maps, a concordance, facts about each of the books of the Bible. It's a great way to get them in the habit of using a "study Bible" on a regular basis – one of the best habits ever!
P.S. Thank you so much for your comments. I enjoy them very much and read each one. I also love the grand ideas so many of you share that help and encourage other readers. I do my best to reply to them all but value your patience when that isn\'t possible.
