Truth from A to Z ~ X is for…

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.

From Vera:

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?

From Cheryl:

“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.

So here we are at good ole X in the alphabet. This is a letter for ABC Wednesday that takes a little creativity. Thank you to the ABC team for managing this meme and to Denise Nesbitt the founder.

Did you know that X stands for Christ and Cross and other stuff, too?

At Easter I make a Russian sweet cheese spread called Seernaya Paska that we spread on Russian Easter Bread that is called Paska by a lot of people and Kulich by my Russian relatives. In the Russian alphabet X is the first letter in Christ. We decorate the sweet cheese spread with an X and a B. X for Christ and B for arose/risen. Christ is Risen.


If you are a regular on my blog you know I like to wander around very old cemeteries. There are always a great variety of crosses to photograph. Here are a couple.

That’s it for my offerings on the letter X. I’ll be curious to come around and see what you found for this challenging letter.

Summer has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere. I’m still watching all the World Cup Soccer I can fit in. Our bathroom renovation is progressing. Never a dull moment at this old house. Someone mentioned and I’m in agreement that we don’t seem to have ordinary weeks or days anymore. I’ll have to cling to the verse in the Bible that says…

“This is the day that the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24
