If you believe that the Bible is the word of God, it follows that it’s truth and message should be better memorized than one-liners from your favorite comedy movie. (Yes, I’m talking to myself.)
You see, sometimes I just want someone to tell me what to do. There are so many ways to spend our money, our attention and our time… and there’s lots of noise and voices telling us what we should do. Which voice we end up listening to may be determined by something as arbitrary as the temperature of the room or how well we are digesting our last meal.
I don’t want to live a life that is run by my emotions or even how I feel- especially since feelings can change as quickly as the breeze.
So to face the battle, I am challenged to arm myself with the TRUTH, the Word of God.
Please join me in this 30-day challenge. I will post my 30 verses below, but feel free to chose your own. Follow along as I create videos about each verse and why I chose it.
2-5. Control Your Emotions. Take Every Thought Captive –> (3) For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. (4) The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. (5) We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. Tweet this
I am on this earth to serve others –> Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather in humility, value others above yourselves. ~Philippians 2:3 Tweet this
Love is an action, a verb, a decision –> (4)Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. (5)It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. (6)Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. (7)It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. ~1 Corinthians 13: 4-7 Tweet this
How should I integrate the Bible in my life? –> (5)Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength. (6)These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. (7)Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. ~Deuteronomy 6:5-7
What did Christ do for us? –> But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. ~Isaiah 53:5
No one understands my pain –> The Lord is close to the brokenhearted, and saves those who are crushed in spirit. ~Psalm 34:18
My talents are God’s gift to me. What I do with them is my gift back to God –> For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them. ~Ephesians 2: 8-10
