Welcome to another month of the Book to Brain Scripture Memory Challenge.
Are you in?
This month we are focusing on the grace. I found so many great Scripture passages on the subject and had a difficult time deciding on one. I finally chose this one…
“But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it—the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God’s righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.” -Romans 3:21-26
There is so much to say about this passage, but I’m just going to mention a few things. I hope to go a little deeper on some of the subjects later in the month if I am able to.
I like the fact that this passage mentions the purpose of the Law and then shows how and why God justified. Not only does it remind of us our need for a Savior, but it also assures us that we have been justified by the grace of God through the work of Christ on the cross to show God’s righteousness.
This month I am focusing on memorizing verses 23-24 of this passage because they are a wonderful reminder that grace is a gift–and an undeserved gift at that. While these Bible verses are probably familiar to most of us, they are important ones to have memorized if you don’t have them memorize already. Below you can download your free Scripture memory printable pack to post the verses around your home or however you wish to use them.

Also, I would love to know if you are memorizing with me this month, so leave me a comment if you are! May we be overwhelmed with the grace of God this month as we meditate on His Word and the life-giving message of the gospel.
Have you thanked God for the gift of His grace recently?
