Looking through my Bile App at some of the verses I have hi-lighted over the years, I find it fascinating to look back and see what impacted me at the time.
I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!’ Galatians 2:21
The above verse (bookmarked in 2011) Paul is talking about how we are saved by grace and faith alone. Those who have been saved by grace have died to sin and even when we slip up we will seek God to ask for his grace and forgiveness, Christ died for us so we could receive abundant grace!
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
When I look around we have all been blessed with gifts of the Spirit, as a church we can be amazing when we all serve the wider community with our gifts. What gifts do you have and how could you best serve people around you?
For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength Philippians 4:13
Paul has endured many hardships through his life he has managed to overcome being held captive, endured various forms of punishment, starvation, poverty, being shipwrecked and persecuted. Yet in every step he derives strength through Christ who strengthens him from the spirit living within.
What verses have you bookmarked over the years, have you revisited any lately and do they have the same impact?
Have a blessed day
