Do you have a scripture that resonates with you? Everyone knows John 3:16:
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.John 3:16 (ESV)
It’s the first one that you will learn. It’s the one you see on t-shirts, key chains, posters, and paintings. You can see it almost everywhere, including at your favorite football game.
When I came to faith, there was one scripture that seemed to have struck a cord with me. It was the first verse that I memorized after John 3:16.
I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.John 15:5 (ESV)
At the end of the day, I can do nothing without the blessings of God. It is because of these blessings that I try to do my part and do good in the world. It’s the reason why I’m passionate about the air in my lungs and am grateful for my life, my family, my friends, and my job.
What is your favorite verse? I would love to hear.
