Thursday Summertime Bible Verse Challenge

Halfway through July already.  It’s time again for our Thursday Bible Verse Challenge. Choose any verse you would like to share from the Bible and leave it in the comments. I will add it below. Thank you in advance for sharing here.

Matthew 7:13-14 (ESV):

Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.

I’m reading 1 Corinthians during this month and chapters 1-4 each day for 2 weeks. “Repetition is the mother of learning.” Here are a few verses that I’ve underlined.

1 Corinthians 1:9:

God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:25:

For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

1 Corinthians 2:12:

Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God.

From Mildred:

Isaiah 41:13

“For I, the LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, ‘Fear not, I am the one who helps you.’”

From Karen:

Isaiah 5:20-21:

20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! 21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

From Vera:

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭1:15-23‬ ‭ESV‬‬:

“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the one to come. And he put all things under his feet and gave him as head over all things to the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.”

From Maristella:

2 Timothy 1:9

“He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.”
