What is your favorite scripture verse?
What would be your response and why?
Each of us has that verse that really speaks to us. Usually that verse has come to us at a time when we really needed it and it came to us at a point when we needed the light of God in our lives.
My favorite verse has always been John 3:8.
The wind blows where it wishes. You hear its sound but you do not know from where it comes or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.
For me my favorite verse isn't so much about a comfort as it is a challenge.
I don't want my life to ever be about me. I have watched Christians down through the years use the their faith and their belief in Jesus for their own personal gain. And that type of faith (me oriented Christianity) has been way too noisy in hearing what Jesus is doing in their life. Don't give me you, give me your Jesus.
That is the number one reason I'm so reluctant to being bold and being out on the edge talking about Jesus and talking about my faith, because I don't want people to be drawn to me or talk about me. I want people to be drawn to my Jesus and drawn to the faith I have in him. I want Jesus and the Holy Spirit to work through me, and I feel more times than not that is best done by being quiet and waiting on Him to move me instead of me moving out of some type of restlessness.
I never want it to be about what I'm doing or where I'm going or what I'm doing in the name of Jesus. I want to be blown, lead, and doing in because I'm directed by Him.
When this life is done, I want only one person patting me on the back and this Jesus.
"Well done, good and faithful servant"
