We are winding down on our A to Z Bible Verse Challenge with 2 more letters to go. This weeks letter is Y. Please share your verse/verses in the comments and I will add them to this post.
I’m sharing a portion of scripture from 2 Corinthians this week.
Y is for Yes:
2 Corinthians 1:17-22 (ESV)
…Do I make my plans according to the flesh, ready to say “Yes, yes” and “No, no” at the same time? As surely as God is faithful, our word to you has not been Yes and No. For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, whom we proclaimed among you, Silvanus and Timothy and I, was not Yes and No, but in him it is always Yes. For all the promises of God find their Yes in him. That is why it is through him that we utter our Amen to God for his glory. And it is God who establishes us with you in Christ, and has anointed us, and who has also put his seal on us and given us his Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.
Y is for YOU AND YOUR
“And He said to him, “ ‘YOU SHALL LOVE THE LORD YOUR GOD WITH ALL YOUR HEART, AND WITH ALL YOUR SOUL, AND WITH ALL YOUR MIND.’”
Matthew 22:37 (NASB1995)
“In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your paths straight.”
Proverbs 3:6 (NASB1995)
“that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;”
Romans 10:9 (NASB1995)
Y is for Yes:
I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death.
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
Y is for YOUTH,
1 Timothy 4:12
Let no man despise thy YOUTH; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.
