Romans 8 Memory Challenge: Week Five

I wasn’t sure how this week would be, after getting behind due to a tough week of scripture followed by Thanksgiving week left me feeling way behind on the project.

Funnily enough however, when I focus on memorizing and spend time on it daily I can really make some progress.

This week will either be super easy or very challenging to get time to work on it. Mr. SJ will be out of town, but my mom will be visiting so I’ll have help, but I don’t see my mom often so I want to spend as much time with her as I can. Just have to see how it all works out, but I plan to at least work on the verses first thing in the morning and right before bed, since that shouldn’t seem like I’m ignoring my mom in order to read and reread verses.

This week’s verses:

Romans 8:10-11
10 But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
11 If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.

Previous verses:

Romans 8:1-9
1 There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
2 For the law of the Spirit of life has set you free in Christ Jesus from the law of sin and death.

3 For God has done what the law, weakened by the flesh, could not do. By sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh,
4 in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not according to the flesh but according to the Spirit.

5 For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit.
6 For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.

7 For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.
8 Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
9 You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.
