Hide God’s Word in your Heart
Every term two scriptures are chosen to tie in with the focus of the term. Students are encouraged to memorise the scriptures, and those that successfully memorise all of the scriptures throughout the year are presented with a scripture medal at prize-giving.
Term One 2020
John 3: 11 – 18 (GNB)
I am telling you the truth: we speak of what we know and report what we have seen, yet none of you is willing to accept our message.
You do not believe me when I tell you about the things of this world; how will you ever believe me, then, when I tell you about the things of heaven?
And no one has ever gone up to heaven except the Son of Man, who came down from heaven.”
As Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the desert, in the same way the Son of Man must be lifted up, so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to be its judge, but to be its saviour.
Those who believe in the Son are not judged; but those who do not believe have already been judged, because they have not believed in God’s only Son.
1 Corinthians 13: 1 – 8a. (GNB)
I may be able to speak the languages of human beings and even of angels, but if I have no love, my speech is no more than a noisy gong or a clanging bell.
I may have the gift of inspired preaching; I may have all knowledge and understand all secrets; I may have all the faith needed to move mountains—but if I have no love, I am nothing.
I may give away everything I have, and even give up my body to be burned—but if I have no love, this does me no good.
Love is patient and kind; it is not jealous or conceited or proud;
love is not ill-mannered or selfish or irritable;
love does not keep a record of wrongs;
love is not happy with evil, but is happy with the truth.
Love never gives up; and its faith, hope, and patience never fail.
Love is eternal.
