Welcome to Simply Seeking Him…Daily Scripture Encouragement. There is nothing greater that you can do in your life than to know God’s Word. He is the reason we exist and our purpose in life is to know Him and make Him known! My passion for the Bible has prompted me to encourage women to study His Word daily. We hope this daily Scripture will help you to do just that!
Each day there will be a Scripture to read. I encourage you to use the translation of your choice. I would also encourage you to get a journal specifically for writing out Scripture. There is something about putting the pen to paper that helps us connect with His Word even more. Then take it further if you can and memorize part of it as well as researching the verses YOURSELF. We have provided some helpful resources but there are many out there.
Romans 6:8-14 (ESV)
8 Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him.
9 We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him.
10 For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God.
11 So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.
12 Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, to make you obey its passions.
13 Do not present your members to sin as instruments for unrighteousness, but present yourselves to God as those who have been brought from death to life, and your members to God as instruments for righteousness.
14 For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
