LPM Memory Verses 9 & 10

I can't believe we are up to memory verse #10! I didn't post about #9, mostly due to a busy schedule, but it was Acts 1:8: You will have power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses throughout all Judea, Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. I am feeling called to proclaim what God has done in my life lately. There is a scripture in John, the last verse actually, that says if everything Jesus Christ did was to be written down, the earth could not hold all the volumes of books. I used to think that referred only to His earthly ministry and miracles, and it well could have, but now I see it as every person's testimony of how He changed their lives.

For #10 I chose Galatians 5:1: For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore do not submit again to a yoke of slavery. I have been set free in Christ, but I can see the snares of Satan at every turn. How he would love for me to trade one sin for another, instead of pursuing holiness through Christ. I have been guilty of some attitudes this week that don't line up with being a member of the body of Christ, and not only does it make me sad, it makes me aware of how the enemy will use even good things to trip us up. This verse will remind me that those things are nothing less than slavery to a lesser god.
