Scripture Sabbath Challenge

Throughout the scriptures, we find the command to study, to meditate, to teach, the words found in the scriptures.

Deuteronomy 6:7 – “And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.”

John 5:39 – “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.”

2 Nephi 32:3 – “Angels speak by the power of the Holy Ghost; wherefore, they speak the words of Christ. Wherefore, I said unto you, feast upon the words of Christ; for behold, the words of Christ will tell you all things what ye should do.”

Doctrine & Covenants 1:37 – “Search these commandments, for they are true and faithful, and the prophecies and promises which are in them shall all be fulfilled.”

 

There is also a day set apart as a day to gather together and worship our God.

 

The Challenge

 

Once a week, on your day of worship, whenever it is, share a scripture with your fellow bloggers. It can be one you’ve been studying for a while, one you’ve just rediscovered, an old favorite, etc.

Include the tag and/or category “Scripture Sabbath” in your post, so we can all share in what has made an impact on your life this week.

And, if you’re willing, come back here and share your post link in the comments, either on this page or any of my Scripture Sabbath posts.

 

(This page now allows comments. Sorry for not having that before. Oopsy!)

    • Thanks for sharing! I love the verses you shared, and the verse that your blog title is based on. There is so much we don’t know, or misunderstand. Thanks to the gift of heavenly inspiration, we can understand *some* things now. But there will come a day when we will understand all. That is such a wonderful blessing.

    • Hi and welcome! You can definitely begin any day you want. And thanks for sharing your post. I took a look and commented on your blog. I love how we see the blessings promised in the scriptures fulfilled in our own lives. It’s something that strengthens my testimony of God’s love.
