This bible verse memory
set is centered on pairs of verses based on our position in Christ
(what God has given us in Christ - i.e. who and what we are in God's
sight right now) and our practice of Christ (what we are called to do
in response to the truth of what God has done for us). We are fully
righteous in Christ, but we are also called to be righteous in deed.
That process of becoming in practice who we already are in position is
called sanctification. These verses provide a way to remind
ourselves of our calling and our service. We are a holy and righteous
people, a royal priesthood, who live by faith alone, but not by a faith
which is alone.
