Unique is asking, what’s your favorite Bible verse? Who wants to go first? Tina looks ready.
Unique, you’re awesome. Awesome. How sweet of a question is. I love that. So wherever you are unique, I just want to say I hope that you share with us your favorite verse because I thought that was very sweet and thoughtful to ask us what is our favorite verse? But I will say, since I was a child, my first favorite Bible verse is probably Matthew, chapter seven, verse 14. And in Matthew, chapter seven, let me just make sure I read it verbatim because this is a question I absolutely loved when I was a child because it was how I felt. If this makes any sense, it says because straight is the gate and narrow is the way which leads into life. And few there be that find it. And it just reminded me because when I was a little girl, there was a poster, I went to public school, but this poster stuck out to me and it said, what is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right. And so I always kind of felt like the odd person out because since the little girl, I really wanted to obey Jesus, I really wanted to keep his Commandments.
I really loved God and kind of didn’t fit in. It was a lot of I was going to say, you are odd.
Most people probably would not have that as their favorite verse, but it’s odd in a good way.
I hope so.
Feel bad for every verse that doesn’t have a person who has it as their favorite verse.
Yeah, exactly. So anyways, but I like that because it made me feel like God recognized like, hey, just because you’re different or unique, hey, just like your name unique. That’s okay. God sees that as something special. We’re peculiar people and recall to be different in this world because we’re pilgrims going to a different land. So anyways, that’s my verse.
I didn’t have a favorite verse for the longest time because I could not settle my mind on one. But recently I settled down on one. John four eight, which is he that Loveth, not knoweth, not God. For God is love. And I actually grew up with people always saying all the time that God is love, God is love. Or this mantra, God is love all the time. Oh, no, God is good all the time. But this concept of God is love. To me, it just was so generic, so meaningless, so hollow. And we used it so many times. But now I’m getting to the point as Tina was really emphasizing. Well, today, tonight, this is the key to understanding the entire Bible. This is the theme that unites the entire Bible. This is the core to understanding God. This is the core to understanding the law and his requirements. This is key and essential to understanding life itself. Einstein was always looking for this law or this concept that would just unite everything in the universe. And just this simple rule that explains everything. And I think really is just God is love that really explains everything.
It brings the entire Bible together, explains all those rules that might not be anymore, but are actually now greater, fulfilled everything. Why did Jesus do what he do? Why did God make us? Why are we in God’s image? Why are we suffering? Even now? It all comes back to because God is love. And sometimes it’s hard to see why. But yeah, as God told Job, we don’t understand it all yet, but there is a day that will come that we will see everything. Everything will be made clear, and we will all bow down and worship God and acknowledge how just, how fair, how good, how righteous, how perfect, how wonderful, how loving he is.
Amen. All right. My favorite verse and I’ll be really quick. There’s a lot of verses. I love it. It’s really hard to choose. But the one that I would have to say is my favorite because God spoke this to me in the context of a relationship at the time. He said verses Psalm 37, verses three to five or seven or somewhere. There mostly verse four, commit your way to the Lord and he will fulfill the desires of your heart. And he has done that. And I attempted to put that into action as best as I could. And then he gave me this one through whom he has been fulfilling the desires of my heart. So that is my favorite verse.
That’s a really good one. God gave me the verse, too, before I met my husband. So I agree, it’s a great verse. But make sure you commit your way to the Lord because only then he can give you the right person for two people together. It’s beautiful. And you guys are such a great couple.
We got one comment brought in. Point. Michael Gray says my favorite verse is Isaiah 55 nine.
The heavens are higher than the Earth. So are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Oh, wow. We needed that first earlier.
Yeah. Hey, thank you.
I guess this is the earlier question.
Thank you, Michael.
All right. Well, that concludes our question for this evening. And we are about 1 hour, just going over a little bit, but pretty close. So I would like to wrap this up.
