What is your favorite passage in the Bible?
We all have one or two verses that have touched our lives in one way or another. These inspired words have lifted our spirits when we were down, comforted us when we were hurting, or gave us the hope to face another day.
No book in all of mankind has had its words live in the hearts of men and women like the words found in the Holy Bible. That is because we have “accepted it not as the word of men but for what it really is, the word of God” (1 Thessalonians 2:13). These passages we love are not lying stagnant in some old dusty museum back room, but they are “living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword” piercing into our very “joints and marrow” (Hebrews 4:12).
These words are written on our hearts and live in our minds. They wake us up in the morning and give us peaceful sleep at night.
Did Moses have a favorite verse? Perhaps those ten written in stone? David surely had a few verses that were special to him, “How sweet are Your words to my taste! Yes, sweeter than honey to my mouth,” he wrote (Psalm 119:103).
Of course, the original scriptures were not divided into chapters and verses. This was not done until the 15th and 16th centuries, first into chapters, later into verses. This was done originally as a study aide. The Geneva Bible, printed in 1550 was the first English Bible to use these chapters and verses that we still use today.
This issue has a special section of verses that are “special” in the lives of many. Read on and perhaps you will find your favorite verse here too.
Just a quick reminder. Pray that we can work together to play a small role in uniting the world-wide brotherhood, energizing churches, and reaching the lost.
