As a Christian, I enjoy reading the Bible. There are many go-to verses I refer to in times of comfort, joy and uncertainty. Here is a collection of my favourite Bible verses I would like to share with others in the hope that they may like them for similar reasons.
9For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; 12giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. 13He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, 14in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.
From time to time, I forget that I am meant to be a good witness to people who are not yet saved. I will openly admit that there are times where I fail to do this. Verse 10 reminds me of how I am to conduct myself when I am drawn into temptation!
1And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, 2in which you once walked according to the [a]course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, 3among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others. 4But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), 6and raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7that in the ages to come He might show the exceeding riches of His grace in His kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. 8For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9not of works, lest anyone should boast. 10For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
This passage is a perfect reminder that we are not saved by the things that we do but by His grace and His grace alone. It is important to remind ourselves that our salvation is not based upon anything that we have done but by the work of the LORD and what He has made possible to us!
16For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
If you want more proof that God is eternal, here it is. God has no beginning and has no end!
