Along with Desiring God, we believe that "the life of faith is a fight of faith, and that believers must be armed for this fight. This fight is not against flesh and blood, but against spiritual principalities, so the Word of God is our indispensable sword. Through memorizing and meditating on the Word, this powerful sword becomes readily available to us at any time, providing us with ever-present counsel, encouragement, and protection from the enemy of our souls."Learn more at Fighterverses.com →
We will continue to list each week's verse on the website and in the Sunday Gathering program. We will also have a small supply of the Fighter Verse Sets available at the Resource Table and Book Nook in the Calvary church building, for those who like to have the memorization cards on hand.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
