the Christ house: Thessalonians, Timothy, Titus & Philemon

 

The-Christ-HouseThis month, we wind up our year-long reading of the New Testament. We’ve read the NT at a deliberately leisurely pace of one chapter per day so as to take special note of what is specifically said about Jesus Christ. As we’ve read, we’ve memorized one verse about the Christ from each of the New Testament books; a “Christ verse.”

During the first 22 days of December we’ll read the letters of Paul that we know today as 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 & 2 Timothy, Titus, and Philemon. Come the last week of this year (Dec. 23-31), we’ll reflect on all we’ve read this month. The Christ verses to memorize as we read through these letters in December are:

  • “Give thanks in every situation because this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” (1 Thes. 5.18)
  • “May the Lord lead your hearts to express God’s love and Christ’s endurance.” (2 Thes. 3.5)
  • “This saying is reliable and deserves full acceptance: ‘Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners’—and I’m the biggest sinner of all.” (1 Tim. 1.15)
  • “… anyone who wants to live a holy life in Christ Jesus will be harassed.” (2 Tim. 3.12)
  • “… we wait for the blessed hope and the glorious appearance of our great God and savior Jesus Christ.” (Titus 2.13)
  • “May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.” (Philemon 25)
