Memory verse: “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23)
I memorized the “Romans Road” as a child, but I’m looking forward to reviewing it this summer while teaching it to my kids! If you are unfamiliar with the Romans Road, it’s merely the fancy name for a set of verses strictly from within this book of the Bible that clearly lays out the path to salvation. It’s such a good group of verses to have memorized for that day when someone asks you how they can become a Christ-follower, and you don’t have a Bible in your hand. If you have the Romans Road in your head and on the tip of your tongue, you have all the tools you need to confidently tell someone the simple and beautiful way to Jesus straight from the Bible.
Recognizing our sin is the first step on the road to finding a Savior.
About the photo: Did you know you can eat spruce tips, the pale green new baby growths that pop out on the branches in late spring/early summer? Here’s an informative article if you’d like to learn more about them! I picked these after photographing them during an evening walk, and I’m in the process of making them into an infused oil for a special recipe or two. It’s been a fun project, but edible or not, the verdict is still out on whether we actually like spruce tips. I’ll let you know what we think after we try it!
