Random 5 Friday is a weekly meme over at A Rural Journal.
Today I’d like to share with you my favorite Scripture verses!
1. “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” (John 17:3, ESV)
I love how well this defines eternal life: knowing Christ is the ultimate reward!
2.”For freedom Christ has set us free; stand firm therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.” (Galatians 5:1, ESV)
This verse reminds me of just how much freedom and joy Christ has won for me.
3. “When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your consolations delight my soul.” (Psalm 94:19, NASB)
Love this verse as someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder!
4. “And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. 12 Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.” (1 John 5:11-12, NIV)
Spelling it out.
5. Psalm 88, MSG
These verses put my deepest heart sorrows into words. Even though the psalm is a devastating one, it was good to find myself in the pages of the Word. I’m glad I don’t feel this same pain anymore!
