    I am just learning to read Bible. I don’t know where to even begin. I don’t even have a verse to share because this is all new to me. Please could you tell me where to start. I need to get closer to God. I know now he’s real and I so want a relationship with him. Please help me on this journey. Thank you

  3. Jeremy Baker says:

    My favorite verse of Scripture has always been John 15:13 “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” It reminds me of our Military. It reminds me of Jesus dying on the cross for us. It reminds me of just how much & deep love really means.

    I have a few favorites but I must say the first verse I learned and understood as a child;
    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world (us) He gave His only begotten Son, that whom so ever beliefs in Him will have everlasting life.
    This is the first one to comes to mind when I feel over whelmed at what life is throwing at me.
    His promise. His Love. My salvation.

The reason this is my favorite verse, came to me in a very difficult time in my life for God really use this verse to strengthen me and encourage me and I felt very much alone and that nobody was there to help me. Through the years that God is just continue to strengthen my faith in that I can grow in him.

  13. MJ Roberts says:

    “For I know the plans i have for you….” Jer 29:11
    I grew up in an adopted abusive home and then right out of high school right into the Army, and married when I was 19 to a man who carried out more abuse. Through all this, Jesus NEVER left my side and His plans have brought me peace and love. Thank you Father for your promises

    12 Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
    15 Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful. 16 Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. 17 And whatever you

    My all time favorite verse is John 3:16

  25. Barbara McLaughlin says:

    My favorite verse is Isaiah 41:13

  29. Tom Decker says:

    If there is one verse in the Bible that stands out it would be this one. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
    I think this verse is without a doubt is a foundational verse that shows the heart of God. It brings out the depth of the Father’s love showing the all encompassing love that He demonstrated when He gave His Son and the far reaching love that God holds out to all mankind regardless of the lowest depths that anyone can fall or ever has fallen. Regardless of how lost and how far mankind has wandered away from God He is able to save because His love is all inclusive.

    “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”
