VERSE-O-RAMA Day 4

It’s VERSE-0-RAMA 2017 here on GUWG, where we’re asking peeps from all over the world to share their absolute all-time favorite Bible verses.

Today’s rather awesome selection was submitted in the past by a woman named Emily (owner of the foot to the right). I thought I’d share her submission in its entirety:

The One Thing

She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what he said. But Martha was distracted by all the preparations that had to be made.

She came to him and asked, “Lord, don’t you care that my sister has left me to do all the work by myself? Tell her to help me!”

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but only one thing is needed. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her.”

(Luke 10:39-42)

Are you more Martha or Mary?

In or Out?

How close should we be to Jesus? One little world paints the picture:

in

He doesn’t want us just to know about him. Or simply to be with him. He wants us to go much deeper than that. He wants the closest, most intimate relationship imaginable. He wants us to be in him.

NO WORRIES WEEK

Tired?  Stressed? Overwhelmed?

You don’t have to be. Here’s what Jesus said:

Imitate Jesus

It’s SHARE YOUR FAITH WITHOUT FREAKING OUT WEEK.

Yesterday, we shared some “To Don’ts.” Today, we’ll start sharing some “To Do’s.”

We’ll begin here:

Imitate Jesus. (1 Corinthians 11:1)

Was evangelism a priority for Jesus? Let’s look at his first and last recorded words to his disciples:

Love Your Enemies. Now. Seriously.

Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you. (Matthew 5:44)

Think of the one person on this planet whom you despise more than anyone else. Here’s what Jesus says we should do about people like that:

Love them.
Pray for them.

What would happen if people actually took Jesus’ words seriously? Think we’d have less war? Fewer shootings in our neighborhoods?

Do You Believe?

It’s BIG QUESTIONS WEEK here on GUWG where all week long we’ve been looking at deep, thought-provoking ?s posed in the Bible.

One day, two blind men came to Jesus. They wanted to see. He asked them a simple question that cut right to the heart of the matter:

Do you believe I can make you see?

Their response?

Yes, Lord, we do.
