This Thursday we are on that tricky letter X. Remember you can pick any word that has an X anywhere within the word. After you choose your Bible verse or verses add it in the comments and I’ll post it below. Thank you all for your excellent contributions each week.
X is for Examine:
Lamentations 3:40 ~ Let us test and examine our ways, and return to the Lord.
2 Corinthians 13:5 ~ Examine yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Or do you not realize this about yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? -unless indeed you fail to meet the test.
X is for eXact
“And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power. When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,”
Hebrews 1:3 NASB
From Patricia: X is for Examine:
Lamentations 3:40 Let us examine and probe our ways,
And let us return to the Lord.
1 Corinthians 11:27-31 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly.
From Ruthie: X is for Exalt.
Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool. Psalm 99:5
From Bethany: X is for Exalt.

From Happy One (Karen): X is for Exceedingly
Mark 4:41 And they feared EXCEEDINGLY, and said one to another, what manner of man is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?
“Exalt” is a repeat, but this is the verse that came to mind, and I love this invitation to His people!
Oh, magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.
