I’m a couple of days late sharing the first Scripture passage I have chosen to memorize this month. I have decided to focus on learning the following two verses from Colossians…
“For he has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.”
Colossians 1:13-14 (NLT)
I love the truth that we have been rescued from the dominion of darkness and blessed with the freedom of living in the kingdom of God’s holy Son. In the kingdom of light.
There are days when the kingdom of darkness still seeks to oppress, consume and destroy. The truth of this verse will help me to stand strong against the lies of the evil one, remembering that Satan is a defeated foe. I can stand firm knowing that although life will be difficult at times, I do not need to be afraid, “Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows, But take heart, because I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NLT).
I will add this Scripture passage to the Versed in Truth page, so that all of these wonderful promises can be easily found in one place.
