What About Grace?

For the next couple of months our pastor is preaching on the book of Romans.  Today I got an email from church giving the titles of the sermons plus the scripture that was suggested for us to memorize.  I haven't done that in a very long time.  It brought great memories of Lake James Camp days or doing that for Youth Group. 
I just thought others might like to try their hand at memorizing, too.  After all, it is a great way to exercise the brain plus keeping our thoughts going in the RIGHT direction!!!
