Scripture Song Giveaway – Our Great Advocate – 1 John 2:1

When we turn to Jesus, he not only forgives our sins, but frees us from their enslaving power and gives us the Holy Spirit to enable us to overcome them and put them to death. ?But until Jesus returns, all of us will battle its ongoing presence in our lives. ?And though we have the power to overcome sin, yet we all fail at times. ?When we do, we should not give in to discouragement or give up or fear condemnation, because we have an advocate in heaven, a great high priest on the throne, who intercedes on our behalf, Jesus Christ, the righteous. ?Today, I’m giving away a Scripture Song, 1 John 2:1:

My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.?(1 John 2:1)

You can listen to this song or download it free here.

If A 2 Year Old Can Memorize Scripture, So Can You

I recently received this encouraging email from a woman who used our “Hide the Word” Scripture Memory Songs in Vacation Bible School:

Hi Mark,

I?wanted to let you know that using 2 of the songs from your cds for our VBS this year was a huge success.??Around 200 children learned I Peter 3:18 and I Peter 1:18-19.? They sang along with the CD and performed?each song with sign language.? During the instrumental bridge of each song, we had the children recite the verses.? Your songs proved to be great tools for them to use in memorizing their verses for the week.? Also, we made CDs for each family at VBS so they could?listen to the songs at home.

Here is one comment I received from a mother of 6 children:

My 2 year old can now quote 1 Peter 2:18-19. “You were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.”.?? Thank you VBS music cd!

We’re so grateful for this encouragement!

So here’s what we want to do. ?We’d like to give any VBS or Sunday School or Christian School or Home School or Church a Hide the Word CD of your choice.

Just go to our website: forevergratefulmusic.com and pick out the CD you’d like, email your address and your choice of CD to us at mvaltrogge@gmail.com and we’ll send you a complimentary CD.

Or, if you simply have a hard time memorizing Scripture and would like to try Hide the Word, we’ll send you one free as well. ?Just follow the instructions above.

You aren’t going to be outdone by a 2-year old are you?

Scripture Song Giveaway – 1 Thessalonians 5:14


Today I’m giving away another Scripture Song to help you memorize the Word.? I love this Scripture:

And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)

This verse has helped me many times when interacting with believers who were weak in faith, or struggling in various ways.? I’m grateful the Lord regularly reminds me of how slow to change I am and how longsuffering he is toward me, so that I can attempt to “be patient with them all,” as Jesus is patient with me.

You can listen to and download this free Scripture song here.? If you?d like more free Scripture songs, scroll down the page to the section on the right that says ?Free Resources? and click on ?Free Scripture Memory Songs.?

This song comes from Hide the Word 8, “Through the Waters,” which is part of my series of 9 Hide the Word albums, which have been designed to help people memorize Scripture.? If you would like to hear other Hide the Word songs, please visit my website, Forever Grateful Music.
