After school today, my daughter participated in a spelling bee hosted by our local high school. After listening to word after word spelled by these children for a couple of hours this evening, I am inspired to look at some very special spelling words in the Bible. Enjoy!
Spell CREATION – “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.” Genesis 1:31
Spell SIN – “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it.” Genesis 3:6-7 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
Spell PROMISE – “May your unfailing love come to me, O Lord, your salvation according to your promise.” Psalm 119:41
Spell LOVE – “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
Spell GRACE –“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.” Ephesians 2:8-9
Spell HEAVEN –“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.” Philippians 3:20
Spell PEACE –“Jesus said, Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.” John 14:27
Prayer: Lord God, from the creation of the world to our eternal home in heaven, Your love is shown to us. Bless us daily with Your word that our faith may increase and Your peace may be in our hearts. Amen.
