My three favorite Bible verses

The Bible is my favorite book. I try to read this every day for spiritual enlightenment, inner strength and wisdom. I sincerely believe that it shows the way of salvation for our souls and describes the way of life that God expects us to live. There are a few books and chapters that I really liked about the book, but today I want to give you my three favorite verses. I hope they bless you too.

First John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” I think most people know this verse, which is most often quoted in various evangelistic meetings when preaching the way of salvation to non-Christians. It shows God’s boundless love for His creation and His wonderful plan to bring us back to Him even after we have sinned terribly.

The second is Mark 9:23: “All things are possible to him that believeth.”

These are the words that Jesus spoke to an terminally ill father. The poor man lost courage and hope that one day his son would recover. He had little hope that Jesus would help. Jesus shocked him by saying that all believers can do the impossible. Few of us believe. We depend on our five senses, which is why true faith is unrealized and unrealistic for us. That is why we see so few miracles today. We believe in the visible, not the invisible. But the invisible exists, and the sooner we realize it, the more good opportunities we will take advantage of and see extraordinary things in our lives by exercising our faith.

Hebrews 13: 8 is the last verse: “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” I am very pleased with that. We are looking for security and stability. This world is not a very stable or safe place to live. We see it in all areas of life: health, relationships, business, economy, climate, etc. We need a solid foundation on which to stand. We need someone or something we can trust. This is Jesus. He does not change. Everything is changing, but he is not changing. That is why we trust him. He does not promise one thing today and will not fail to do so tomorrow. We can, but he won’t. He has kept his promise and will certainly keep his word.
