    Hi All, I couldn't find another thread where the sole purpose was to share Bible quotes we find particularly beautiful, uplifting, or meaningful in our lives, so I decided to start one.

    I'm hoping that this thread will be used for fellowship rather than preaching at one another so here are just a couple of suggestions. Keep the quotes short, please give the book, chapter and verse, please tell which translation you are using, and comment if you wish on why you like the quote.

    I put this in the Christianity forum because things posted in general monothesim tend to get overlooked a lot. However, anyone who has a favorite Bible passage is welcome to post it here. Oh, one last suggestion (sorry for the micromanaging), please do not criticize/debate other people's quotes or stories. Oh, one more last thing, no need to limit yourself to just one post here. :)

    cheers,
    lunamoth

    Jesus quoted in John 13: 34:

    A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another (NIV).

    In Peace,
    InLove

    Blessed is the man who endureth temptation for when he is tried he shall the recieve the crown of life which the Lord hath promised to those who love Him.

    reciting from memory & from the book of James, verse 12 i think, not sure what chapter & in the KJV.
    that is one of my favorites.

    Hi Luna, nice idea.:)

    And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom ,which shall never be destroyed.and the kingdom shall not be left to other people,but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever..Daniel 2;44..........this is my most favourite scripture because the whole theme of the bible from Genesis to revelation is about the vindicating of Jehovahs universal sovreinty and it is the only way that peace will come to the earth ,and it will come about through this heavenly kingdom goverment ...with Gods son Jesus christ as the king of this kingdom.this scripture is taken from an old bible thats been in the family for some years i think it is the KJB as it says in the front by his majestys special command

    I always say Ephesians 6:10-18.

    Specifically Ephesians 6:12-13 (NIV)...

    They are not magical words, but indeed words of truth. They do not discourage me to a stand still but to continue to move in faith and truth whatever my endeavor may be - In peace and in God's will.

    I have lots!!


    Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.'

    I use this one when I am in a dark place and it goes along with these two.

    Php 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

    2 Cor 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ's sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

    Thanks for this thread luna :)

    i have one

    27:1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
    27:2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.
    27:3Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
    27:4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
    27:5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
    27:6And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

    the young peoples choir at church ROCKS the house down to this Psalm. the Lord always moves when we sing praises to Him, looking to that blessed HOPE.

    Romans 5;12 this scripture for me, answers the age old question ,why do we grow old and die?....wherefore,as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin,and so death, passed upon all men, for that all have sinned.....yes the first man Adam passed death on to us all....ahhh so thats the answer now i know why we grow old and die

    Proverbs 15:17 - Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.


    Proverbs 22:11 - He that loveth pureness of heart, for the grace of his lips the king shall be his friend.

    James 1:4 - But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

    "In Him we live and move and have our being"
    Acts 17:28

    and the Hymn from Colossians
    (believed to be the first record of Christian hymn):

    "Giving thanks to God the Father,
    who hath made us worthy to be partakers
    of the lot of the saints in light:

    Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness
    and hath translated us into the kingdom of the Son of his love,

    In whom we have redemption through his blood, the remission of sins:

    Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

    For in him were all things created in heaven and on earth,
    visible and invisible, whether thrones, or dominations,
    or principalities, or powers.
    All things were created by him and in him.

    And he is before all: and by him all things consist.

    And he is the head of the body, the church:
    who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead,
    that in all things he may hold the primacy:

    Because in him,
    it hath well pleased the Father that all fulness should dwell:

    And through him to reconcile all things unto himself,
    making peace through the blood of his cross,
    both as to the things that are on earth and the things that are in heaven."
    Colossians 1:12-20

    (Douai Rheims version)

    This is the one I carry on my keychain--

    "But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. --Isaiah 40:31

    InPeace,
    InLove

    This one is not from the Bible, but I hope you won't mind if I post it here. We could also start another thread like that in the Eastern Religions section called Daily Wisdom Sayings.

    peace,
