TOP 10 BIBLE VERSES YOU SHOULD PUT TO MEMORY

These verses cover several different facets of our faith as you can see by the themes listed below. Obviously the Scriptures are full of thousands of verses that all speak profoundly to our heart. I have chosen a select list that I think would be a great place to start.

Please feel free to comment on them or share a verse you would add if you came up with a list.

 

1) All About Grace  Ephesians 2:8-9          

8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

2) Pleasing God     Hebrews 11:6                

6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.

3) Our New Identity   2 Corinthians 5:17  

17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[a] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

4) Key to Christian Living  John 15:1-5

1 “I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit.3 Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. 5 I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is thatbears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

5) Longing of Our Souls  Revelation 22:20

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

 6) Finding Rest in Midst of Struggle   Matthew 11:28-30

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 Formy yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

7) Our Calling on this Earth     Matthew 28:18-20

18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

8) Heart of Worship  Psalm 100:1-5

Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth!
2     Serve the Lord with gladness!
    Come into his presence with singing!

3 Know that the Lord, he is God!
    It is he who made us, and we are his;
    we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture.

4 Enter his gates with thanksgiving,
    and his courts with praise!
    Give thanks to him; bless his name!

5 For the Lord is good;
    his steadfast love endures forever,
    and his faithfulness to all generations.

9) Scripture is Our Victory   Psalm 119:11

11 I have stored up your word in my heart,
    that I might not sin against you.

10) God’s Faithfulness to us  Number 23:19

19 God is not man, that he should lie,
    or a son of man, that he should change his mind.
Has he said, and will he not do it?
    Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it? 

 

God Does Not Need You… He Wants You

God wants us to worship Him. He doesn’t need us, for He couldn’t be a self-sufficient God and need anything or anybody, but He wants us. When Adam sinned it was not He who cried, “God, where art Thou?” It was God who cried, “Adam, where art thou?”

AW Tozer

I am not sure I have a relationship on this earth where a person does not need something from me as I do from them. We have relationships in hopes of getting something out of it. The facts are: that God does not need me in any way… the realization that God is completely self-sufficient…there is nothing I can give Him to make him any more than he already is. Keeping all that in mind and then truly recognizing that God desires me is at the center of God’s revelation to all humanity. He chooses to pursue me because He created me and wants me to have a relationship with Him. It is the purest form of love and is unconditional. Our response is to marvel and our expression of marveling is to worship.
