the Christ house: Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians & Colossians


The-Christ-HouseParticipating MoSt Church members are reading through the New Testament this year at the pace of one chapter per day. We call this project The Christ House (TCH) because as we read, we’re paying special attention to everything that is said about Jesus Christ. As we read, we also determine to memorize one verse about the Christ from each book of the New Testament. We call these memory verses “Christ verses.”

During the first 20 days of November we’re reading the letters of Paul that we know today as Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, and Colossians. Come the end of the month (Nov. 21-30), we’ll reflect on all we’ve read. The Christ verses to memorize as we read through these letters are:

  • “… a person isn’t made righteous by the works of the Law but rather through the faithfulness of Jesus Christ. (Galatians 2.16)
  • “This is what God planned for the climax of all times: to bring all things together in Christ, the things in heaven along with the things on earth.” (Ephesians 1.10)
  • “God has generously granted you the privilege, not only of believing in Christ but also of suffering for Christ’s sake.” (Philippians 1.29)
  • “All the fullness of deity lives in Christ’s body.” (Colossians 2.9)
