Final Thoughts – Bible Verse Tuesday #6

Bible-reading

We weren’t sure what you would think about this new style of series but from the response we have received, you have benefited for these shorter, but still relevant and meaningful posts. I myself, who wrote a large chunk of the series, had the chance to talk with a couple of you and ask why you preferred shorter posts. The overall consensus was that as you can read the whole post in your email browser and you don’t need to load a second page if you enjoy the first paragraph, it can be read where ever you are and whenever you like. Also, because the posts are short, you can read them when you just have five minutes or so to wait for something, and still learn something valuable. As this post style was such a success, you can look forward to seeing it again, in another series coming soon.

Going back to the series we are just drawing to a close, I would like to return to the Bible and review what we have learned over the last month or so. There have been five wholesome posts in this series and I hope that you might have learnt something new.

But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” – Matthew 4:4

After the introductory first post (#1) , we dived straight into Gods word, starting with the book of 1 Peter, chapter 5, verse 7 (#2). From that verse we learn that as we go away into our place of work, in this busy world of ours, we can tell God about all of our worries that our causing us unnecessary stress and he will take care of them. In the third post (#3), we looked at a famous verse from 2 Timothy and discovered its true meaning. Post number four (#4), was one of contemplation, we encouraged you to think about if you had ever full comprehended the true mean of Philippians 4:13. Finally, the penultimate post in this series (#5) was on two connected verses in Romans 8. Again, this was rather like the aforementioned post,  as we wanted you to try to understand the extent of what Paul is saying.

Romans 8:38-39 – Bible Verse Tuesday #5

38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of Christ Jesus our Lord.

– Romans 8:38-39

Nothing, can separate us from the eminence, unending, unconditional love of Christ Jesus, our Lord and saviour. Just take a moment this morning to read that sentence over a couple of times and try to comprehend what it means. You might be on away on holiday at the moment, or you might still be working hard at home. But where ever you are, whatever you are doing, this verse is for you.

After the internal struggle that Paul expressed at the end of Chapter 7, it is good to see him speak openly about his relationship with God in Romans 8. There are many other verses in Romans 8 that also inspire millions of Christians around the world every day, you can find some of them here. Paul was a man who wrote lots of the 66 Books in the Bible. He started off being a wicked man who persecuted anyone who followed God and after an encounter with the Lord himself, became a follower and preacher of the Good News.

Paul states in this verse that after all he has been through, he is very certain, nothing in creation, will be able to separate you from God. Christ Jesus’ love is so epic that not even death can can separate you from it. So, I leave you with this today, remember this week that whatever you or anyone else does, will not separate you from the almighty Lord God.

Philippians 4:13 – Bible Verse Tuesday #4

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

– Philippians 4:13

I really do think that there is someone reading this post, that will realise that they have never fully trusted God. They have never trusted that the person who parted a sea, turned a river to blood and raised a man from the dead, has an amazing plan for their life, will keep them safe and never leave them. These are just a couple of the numerous miracles that God performed, either through Jesus or through another man. As you go away this week, I want you to keep the words of this beautiful, true verse in your head and say whenever you have a free moment remind yourself of them. Pause now and do that. You, can do “all things”, anything, through Christ, the man who conquered death. Anything is possible through Christ. I’m not sure what you think, but I think that is rather amazing.

Take that thought away with you, share this amazing news with your friends and thank the Lord for all he has done. If you are enjoying this series please do hit the like button.

2 Timothy 3:16 – Bible Verse Tuesday #3

image

All all scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness.

– 2 Timothy 3:16

When it says ‘All scripture is God-breathed’, it actually means ‘All Scripture is breathed into by God’. This means that God breathed (told) the people, who wrote sections of the Bible what to write. We don’t know if that was through a vision, an angel or another person. That is why even though the Bible is all Gods word, each book is written differently (people today, phrase sentences differently).

The second most important fact to take from this Bible verse, is that scripture is useful. The Bible deserves more respect in today’s society. As you go away today, think about how useful the Bible is, it’s not just a book, it’s so much more. Share the good news with your friends, relatives and family. And secondly, remember that even though God didn’t physically write the Bible, God told the men and women what to write. Ponder over those thoughts this week.

We would love it if you shared in the comments section below your favorite verse from the Bible and maybe it will be featured in a post on Bible Verse Tuesday. Please like this post if you have enjoyed it and are looking forward to the third post in the series coming next Tuesday.
