It’s Thursday and we are on the letter B in our Truth from A to Z Bible Verse Challenge. Thank you for all the wonderful verses you found last week for the letter A. You can share one verse or a section of scripture.
B is for Bread and Believes
John 6:47-51: (Jesus is speaking these words)
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life. I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread that comes down from heaven, so that one may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I will give for the life of the world is my flesh.
Add the verse or verses you have chosen for the letter B in the comments or on your blog and I will add them here. If posting on your blog I’ll add the link to the post here, too.
From Bethany at Raindrops and Rainbows: B is for Be Kind
Why don’t you click over and read the verses she picked for this week. I’ll post the verses here later today.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. Ephesians 4:32
And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. 2 Timothy 2:24
Then they can urge the younger women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled and pure, to be busy at home, to be kind, and to be subject to their husbands, so that no one will malign the word of God. Titus 2:4, 5
From Barb: B is for Believe
Acts 16:31, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved — you and your household.”
Two things stand out to me with this verse.
1) Salvation is based on believing in what Jesus Christ has done for us, not on our works.
2) When one person in a family follows Christ as their Savior, the rest of the family is strongly affected, often choosing to trust Christ as well.
From Patsystitch: B is for Bread
John 6:32-35. Jesus then said to them, “ Truly, truly, it is not Moses who has given you the bread out of heaven, but it is my Father who gives you the true bread out of heaven. For the bread of God is that which comes down out of heaven, and gives life to the world.” Then they said to Him, Lord, always give us this bread.
From my sister Vera: B is for Blessed
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places,”
Ephesians 1:3 ESV
From Maristella: Be is for Beauty
“Your* beauty* should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.”
1 Peter 3:3-4 | NIV
