14 Days of the Old Testament in the New Testament

MEMORY VERSE
Matthew 15:11
It is not what enters into the mouth that defiles the man, but what proceeds out of the mouth, this defiles the man.

August 26 – 1 Peter 1:17-25
Peter encouraged believers who suffered hardship because of their commitment to Christ. He chose the ideal Old Testament passage to remind them it would be worth it all. Isaiah 40:6-8 (quoted in 1:24-25) reminds us all that God’s Word endures forever.

In a world filled with uncertainties, this is good news.
