Favorite Verses

When I was a little boy, I thought I would stay that way forever. It did not happen. Here I am still thinking I will stay this way forever. It is not happening.

Here are a few of my favorite verses in Scripture:
Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved. (Acts 4:12)

The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. (2 Cor. 4:4)

The person without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God but considers them foolishness, and cannot understand them because they are discerned only through the Spirit. The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments. (1 Cor. 2:14-15)

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. (Isa. 26:3)

But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. (Psalm 19:12-13)

Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become "fools" so that you may become wise. (1 Cor. 3:18)

For the LORD God is a sun and shield; the LORD bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless. LORD Almighty, blessed is the one who trusts in you. (Psalm 84:11-12)

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! (Phil. 4:4)

Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thess. 5:18)

Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. (1 John 3:2)
There are many more.
