Here are three things a life verse helps you do:
1. Speak of your faith more clearly.
A life verse allows you to articulate your faith to those around you. Your family, friends, coworkers and church benefit from the clarity in your life that comes with a life verse. It may seem overwhelming to bring up lots of scripture in a conversation, but a simple life verse opens the door. Your faith becomes more clear as you share your life (and life verse) with others.
2. Speak of your faith more often.
A life verse comes to mind on a regular basis. What is your mission? What is your goal? Why is your hope in the Lord? When trials come, you have something to lean on – God’s Word, not only tucked away in your heart, but right on the tip of your tongue and the forefront of your mind.
3. Speak of your faith more confidently.
A life verse gives confidence to live out your call. Your life is being shaped by the story your tell yourself. Too often, with far too many folks, the story in our hearts and heads is one of low confidence. Allow powerful scripture to become your story – let it shape your confidence.
———–A Few Examples————-
He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God? (New American Standard Bible)
“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”
Galatians 6:2 (ESV)
2 Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Romans 8: 38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
2 Timothy 1:7
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.
