Some of My Favorites

John 14:13
"And if you ask for anything in my name, I will do it for you so that my Father's Glory will be shown through the Son."

What it means to me:
I am able to ask God for anything, no matter how trivial it may seem.

Philippians 2:14
"Do everything without complaining or arguing."

What it means to me:
Quit complaining and just do it.

Ephesians 1:7,8
"In Christ we are set free by the blood of his death, and so we have forgiveness of sins. How rich is God's grace, which he has given to us so fully and freely."

What it means to me:
By his shed blood, I am forgiven. Grace is amazing!

2 Corinthians 9:7-8
" God loves the person who gives happily. And God can give you more blessings than you need."

What it means to me:
If I am obedient, I will be blessed. That too is grace.

I suppose you can tell that I like Paul. It started with a bible study and grew from there. I was and still am amazed at Paul's life. He began as a persecutor of Christians and grew into one of the most courageous and persecuted believers himself. Fascinating really. Just something to think about
