Memory Verse for 1 Corinthians 8

This week’s memory verse, 1 Corinthians 8:6 is:

yet for us there is one God, the Father, from whom are all things and for whom we exist, and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things and through whom we exist.

In putting together a visualization, it didn’t come out as the most readable, but I think the flow of the text can help us remember the meaning. You can read the graphic left to right, as the verse is in the Bible, or you can follow the arrows and get a different ordering. If you do that you’d read something like, “All things are from the Father and through our Lord, Jesus Christ. We exist through through the Lord, Jesus Christ for the Father.”

I hope this helps. And as you work on memorizing this, think of how startling this would be for people to hear of Jesus Christ as one through whom are all things. Jesus didn’t just enter the scene on Christmas. He is one with the Father, co-eternal and who is before creation.
