Truth for Today #37

Thursday October 20th

On Thursdays my posts will include verses that stood out in my readings from the Bible during the week. One, two, three or maybe more. If you have a verse/verses that you read during the week and would like to share, leave it/them in the comments and I will add it/them to the post. Let’s dig deep in God’s Truth this year!

2 Corinthians 4:6

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

From Sandi:

Psalm 91:4 (NIV)

He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

From Vera:

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭1‬:‭18‬-‭20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

John 1:1-13 (Legacy Standard Bible)

The Deity of Jesus Christ

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overtake it.

The Witness of John the Baptist

There was a man having been sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the Light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the Light, but he came to bear witness about the Light. There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens everyone. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. He came to what was His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood nor of will of the flesh nor of the will of men, but of God.

From Leonard:

Luke 14:33
“In the same way, those of you who do not give up everything you have cannot be my disciples.”

From Vera:

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭1:18-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

From Karen:

Romans 15:13
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

From Nancy:

Philippians 1:1-4
“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from His love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”

A to Z Bible Verse Challenge ~ C is for…

 

Today is Thursday and we are on the letter C in our Bible Verse Challenge.

I read a couple of Bible verses loaded with several ‘C’ words.

C is for Common, Certain, Crept, Condemnation, Christ.

Jude 3-4:

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints. For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.

Visit Willow at Willow’s Cottage to see the verse she has chosen to share and say hi.

C is for Casting and Care

Casting all your care on Him for He cares for you.  1 Peter 5:7

From Vee: C is for…

The account of the woman taken in the act of adultery…cast, convicted, conscience, and condemn as in “Neither do I condemn thee, go and sin no more.” 

You can read the full account in John 8:1-11

From Sue: C is for Come, Crimson

Isaiah 1:18-20: 

“Come now, let us reason together, says the Lord: though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool. If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be eaten by the sword; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”

From Maristella: C is for Christ, Continually and Circumstances

“Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in* Christ* Jesus.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 | NIV

From my sister Vera: C is for Chosen and Called.

“But you are a CHOSEN race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who CALLED you out of darkness into his marvelous light.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭2:9‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Click over to Mrs. T’s blog, Across My Kitchen Table to see her choice for C! I’ll add the verse from her blog to this post tomorrow that will give you time to head over and comment on her blog. She chose the word Courage. C is for Courage.

“Have not I commanded thee?  Be strong and of a good courage: be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed; for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.”  (Joshua 1:9)

From Libby at Beauty Without Within: C is for Cry and Crushed.

These verses referring to CRYING out are timely I think: Ps. 34:15,17-18
“The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and his ears are open to their cry for help. The righteous cry out, and the Lord hears, and rescues them form all their troubles. The Lord is near the brokenhearted; he saves those crushed in spirit.”

Libby’s blog is Beauty Without Within.

Bethany at Raindrops & Rainbows has a post on her blog for the Challenge. Click over and read her post, you’ll be encouraged. C is for Create.

“So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.”  Genesis 1:27

Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

From Cheryl: C is for Comfort

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comfort by God. 1 Corinthians 1:3-4

And you are right Cheryl…why stop there. Here is the rest of the paragraph from 2 Corinthians 1:5-7 (ESV).

For as we share abundantly in Christ’s sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too. If we are afflicted, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which you experience when you patiently endure the same sufferings that we suffer. Our hope for you is unshaken, for we know that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in our comfort.

Cheryl’s blog is called Thinking About Home.
