What Is Your Favorite Bible Verse? (Seriously, tell me what it is!)

Happy Friday! I want to shoot for at least 30 verses here, so please leave a Bible verse!

What is your favorite Bible verse(s)? Do you have it memorized?

My favorite passage is:

Romans 12: 1-2

A Living Sacrifice

 1 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

    Is 40:31

    But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

    Tony,
    Isaiah 40:31 mine as well. I use it as my email signature.

     38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

     39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

    Romans 8:38-39

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were e; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:1-5

  • Stacey Johnson

    Hard to pick, but here’s one favorite: 2 Cor. 5:17-21…v. 21 says “God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.”

    By the way, someone in our chapel service this past Monday, 1/23 preached a solid sermon on your favorite verses. If you want to listen sometime: http://www.vfcc.edu/campuslife/?p=chapelArchives (January 23, Rev. Jeff Bogaczyk)

    John 15:5 ““I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

    or…

    Proverbs 27:6 Wounds from a friend can be trusted, but an enemy multiplies kisses.

    Great one—love the imagery!

    Since I became a follower of Jesus I have had many, countless favorite verses with one of them being 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, which states, “Be joyful always, pray continually, and give thanks in everything, for it’s God’s will for you in Jesus.” However, over this Christmas break, in between semesters, I went to Passion Conference in Atlanta and this passage from Ephesians 6:19-20 hit me like a sack of bricks.

    “Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.”

    Paul doesn’t ask to be freed from these earthly chains, rather to be given the words so that when he talks to people, he fearlessly proclaims the Truth, the Gospel, our Savior, WHILE being in a roman jail cell! I’m not here to preach a sermon, so I’ll end it right there, but I encourage whoever reads this comment to take this passage of Scripture and make it a prayer for themselves and for all followers of Jesus as we live our lives.

    STACEY!!!! Woo-Hoo! I love 2 Corinthians 5 and I will no doubt check out that link!

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    GREAT passage… so poetic and powerful!

    Cecily,
    I went night skiing a few weeks ago, for the first time, and said this verse, MANY TIMES, on the way up the lift!

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    Is it in poor taste to suggest that God is an EAGLES fan?

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    I don’t think I really appreciated this verse as a young person, full of energy. Now that I am getting older, I think I appreciate it more!

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    Wow! i love both verses! I love the idea of fearless coupled with “mystery”! It magnifies the point that we can’t do it on our own power! Thanks, T!

    Wendy Little Pearson Said:

    I’m not very savvy at posting comments on blogs, so I’ll answer here: Philippians 4:8 “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.” Yes, I have it memorized and it is SO practical!

  • Joshua

    One of my personal favorites:

    Joshua 1:9:
    Be strong and courageous, do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.

    But there are so many. I mean, I must truthfully say my favorite Bible Verse is Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21.

    Another favorite of mine is the beginning of John, which I see was posted below.

  • Mariella T

    Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ”
    and John 16:4 “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
    They remind me that i can always rely on God :)

    Tony,
    Isaiah 40:31 mine as well. I use it as my email signature.

    So Barry, are you saying I’m old???????

  • http://tijuanabecky.wordpress.com/ Becky

    My favorite is Jeremiah 29:11, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

    So many … but one my favorite has to be 23 Psalm verse 1…

    “The Lord is my Shepherd; I shall not want…”

    The promise of filling all our needs, we just need to follow and be faithful ~

    By the way, I randomly opened my Bible this morning to your favorite verse..I had to read it twice – it felt so new to me….

    Prov 3:5-6: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.”

  • Matthew Kim

    My favorite verse changes from time to time but the two I really really like are Romans 8:37-39 and Isaiah 25:8-9.

  • http://www.leadtoimpact.com/ Bernard Haynes

    My favorite verse is:

    Eph. 3:20 “Now unto Him who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly and above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.”

    This verse has empowered me for a long time to remember that God is able to do something significant out of what looks insignificant to me or others. The only thing He wants me to do is walk in my purpose.

    Be blessed,
    Bernard Haynes

    Matthew 7: 13-14 “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it. “

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    Dan,
    This a GREAT verse and really challenging. Right? Which road am I on today?

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    Bernard,
    This is in my top 10. I give my confirmation student s 10 verse to memorize during the year long process and this one is #10.

  • http://theordainedbarista.com/ Barry Hill

    I love this verse! So many times I want to flip it… “God… It’s Barry, Yeah if you would direct my path—I would love to trust you.”

    I have many but one came to me tonight, Psalms 139. This really shows a great picture of who god really is and how he plays such an important role in one’s life. This came to me at the perfect moment when I was looking for a verse to show me God is with me at this very moment. I went looking in pslams and fliped through when I found this.
