“John 9:4. It tells me that if I don’t work for God now, then I will miss out and die not working for the Lord.”

“Romans 8:1, NIV: ‘Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…’ I love this verse! It tells me guilt cannot stand in the way of what Jesus wants to do in and through us. Many times, we allow the weight of guilt and shame to become our identity, but our identity is only found in the atoning work of Jesus!”

“Luke 24: 46-47. I read this verse around the Christmas season and underlined it because, in my view, Jesus tells of the importance of His death and resurrection in one verse (47) as told in Scripture (46). What a beautiful verse it is too.”

“Exodus 17:8-16. This is a scene where Moses is preparing the Israelites for battle. Aaron and Hur were with him, one on either side, and held up his arms for the salvation of the people.”
