MY FAVORITE BIBLE VERSE

VERSE
1 John 3:18 My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in DEED and in Truth.

REASON
This verse is a reinforcing reminder for me that "Actions speak louder than words", "Talk is cheap" and "Do or Do Not". (The verse below is an example verse in conjunction with the reason, i.e. proving love through ACTion/DOing).
John 14:15 If ye love me, KEEP my COMMANDments.

Proverbs

25:11 A word fitly spoken [is like] apples of gold in a setting of silver.

God's words fitly spoken, can weave magical guidance to an astute listening ear.

"Heavens music" -

Beautiful colours -

Truth can dance and sing
and make merry anywhere-
Most certainly coming from a place of love.

Even criticism served on such a lovely platter eases the pricks, and make life lessons more bearable.

God searches the heart

A tongue can wreak havok or bring joy.

May both benefit from the beautiful blessing of such a delivery, the receiver, and the giver.

Thank you to those who give.

Matthew 7:14 Because Strait [is] the gate, and narrow [is] The Way, which leadeth unto Life, and few there be that find it.

A favorite verse, not (certainly not) because it is "few", but because it is true. Being true, it provides the balance to avoid over expectations that might lead to disappointment because disappointment can be counter-productive.

I like this thread because it encourages contemplation/soulful thinking. TY.

"I belong to The Lord"

adapted from:

Isaiah 44:5 One shall say, I [am] the "I AM"'s; and another shall call [himself] by the name of Jacob; and another shall subscribe [with] his hand unto the "I AM", and surname [himself] by the name of Israel.

I once heard a voice intuitively say, "One shall say I belong to The Lord". I wrote it down in a journal. I didn't know at the time what verse it came from, but Isaiah 44:5 fits the closest. When I found The Lord, this affirmation took on a whole new meaning, showing all along Father had plans for me, even years back. So glad I wrote it down, "One shall say I belong to The Lord."

And come to find out this body is an Israelite :slight_smile:

FROM

THE LETTER OF ARISTEAS* -o- PRAISING THE LAW OF MOSES

13:5 The king praised him and inquired of another, 'What is the goal of speech?' And he replied, 'To convince your opponent by showing him his mistakes in a well-ordered array of [arguments]. For in this way you will win your hearer, not by opposing him, but by bestowing praise upon him with a view to persuading him. And it is by the power of God that persuasion is accomplished.'

For the reasons mentioned above

Book of Wisdom, King of Kings Bible:

1:1 All Wisdom cometh from the Lord, and is with Him for ever.

Amen. In a world full of lies, it can be hard to discern the truth sometimes. Thank-you to the Lord for all the hard work done that has made it easier for people to start to make sense of what is going on around them and what it really means in the context of our real lives.

NB: My favourite Bible verse is a tough ask though as there are so many and they all have had certain meanings at certain times for me (the Bible is vital and the Word lives..),I like the purpose of the challenge on this thread though so thank-you for doing it.

@adam Thank you and everyone for sharing. You can reply with the individual scriptures that meant something to you at those given times with a possible glimpse as to why.


The challenge was initiated because it gives us a chance to share how The Word guides us, or how we use it as a guide, past & present. It is a chance to share how we personally use Scripture; and how it affects or moves us, body, mind and soul. It's meant to be a simple, short and sweet sharing of how just ONE single verse from The Word has amazing power and comes alive, even on different levels. This short and sweet sharing allows readers a brief moment to smile and/or appreciate how Followers of The Way use The Word. Pop in the thread – READ, SHARE, SMILE – pop out. It's not meant to be involved, as much as it is to inspire.

The challenge remains - One verse, one reason.


Here's my next one:

Revelation 21:4
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.

The last couple of days, been feeling a bit sad, with the exposure of so much negative news; and while I can practice being a passer-by, sometimes I just need a little comfort. Revelations Chapter 21 describes New Jerusalem coming down out of the skies; and the goodness it will bring – including wiping away of tears.

Proverbs 18:2

A fool hath no delight in understanding, only in expressing his own opinion.

This is something I experience almost daily when it comes to interpreting current world events. People are particularly surprised to hear that such a sentence is in the Bible.

The verse about the dead coming out of their graves seems relevant to the votes in the American elections.

@DOTS ,
Love the challenge, reasons, love how Father is drawing us closer together with His Love.

One verse: Matthew [ King of kings' Bible - Matthew] But seek ye FIRST The Kingdom of God, and His Righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Reason: A dire need for change was imminent: because the thought and feeling of dying inside was felt pronounced so inside it jolted, causing us to seek harder. Sometimes our lives have to be completely shaken up, changed, rearranged, to relocate us to the place where we're meant to be. There came a day to remember, reading TWHOFTF given us by a special soul. So have faith, trust, seek and ye shall find. If you are here reading and seeking look no further than this little book, here are your hearts desires, your Lover of a life time, your answers to all of life's problems. It changed this Life for the better and it will yours too when you seek with all your heart.

Ezekiel 21:27

21:27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no [more], [overturned] UNTIL he come whose Right it is; and I will give it [him - Shiloh (Gen. 49:10)].

For all The Lord's forbearance, His righteousness, His years of long-suffering, His compassion, His justice and fairness, His continued strength, against a world without faith, and an army of evil, it's His Truth Love and Honor that prevails.
What a glorious day that will be.

When the Ark is recovered and given to Him (whose right it is),
that will be one of the greatest days ever to be recorded.

A new beginning, with The Word at the helm, with the proof of the truth to be seen by all.

Amen.

Glory be to God

Leviticus
23:27 Also on the tenth [day] of this seventh month [there shall be] a Day of Atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the "I AM".

It is looked forward to all of the Feasts and Sabbaths of The Lord. It is amazing how the Trust, Faith and Love has grown over the past years.

Greetings everyone,

You may notice that most of the verses above are now hyperlinked to The King of kings' Bible.

Peace be upon you! :pray:

Sura 39:73 - And those who feared their Lord will be led to The Garden in crowds: until behold, they arrive there; its gates will be opened; and its keepers will say: "Peace be upon you! Ye have done well! Enter ye here, to dwell therein."

It's such a nice greeting (and saluation), often used by The Lord.
