    Just thought I'd share one of my special verses with you all. It was one of the first verses that I memorised which basically means a lot to me, and could be comforting to others...:

    Psalms 27:1-3 (NIV)

    The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be afraid?
    When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
    Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
    though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.

    John 3:16

    JN 3:16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

    that's funny one of my favorites is John 3:17 - read that one for yourself - it is a great verse.
    My other one is 1 Corinthians 16:14
    "Do everything in love"
    A short yet extremely powerful verse.

    great idea for a thread, ( i was thinkin' of it myself [​IMG] )
    1st Peter 5: 7,8 Casting all your care upon him (God): for he careth for you.
    Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour.

    Matthew 22:37 Jesus replied: " `Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' 38 This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: `Love your neighbor as yourself.' 40 All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

    John 11:35 Jesus wept.

    [Shortest verse in the Bible, yet powerful because it shows the humanity of Christ.]

    was the shortest verse in the bible.

    ROMANS 1:16 I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile. 17 For in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last, just as it is written: "The righteous will live by faith."

    1 CORINTHIANS 13:1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.

    1CO 13:4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, 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.

    1CO 13:8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.

    FFX PS2 Chick with Passion

    I was definitely sure that Jesus wept was the shortest...

    but anyway... I've got another favourite verse I'd like to share...

    Romans 8:28

    And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.

    There are so many! Here are a couple of my favorites for now. [​IMG]

    LUKE;18 With God All Things Are Possible
    24 And when Jesus saw that he was very sorrowful, he said, How hardly shall they that have riches enter into the kingdom of God!
    25 For it is easier for a camel to go through a needle's eye, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God.
    26 And they that heard [it] said, Who then can be saved?
    27 And he said, The things which are impossible with men are possible with God.

    PSALM 23 The Lord the Shepherd of His People
    1 A Psalm of David. The LORD [is] my shepherd; I shall not want.
    2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
    3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
    4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou [art] with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
    5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
    6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

    MATTHEW 16; Take Up the Cross and Follow Him
    24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any [man] will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
    25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
    26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
    27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.

    Some of my favorites

    Rom 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ:

    Rom 5:2 By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

    Rom 5:3 And not only [so], but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

    Rom 5:4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

    Rom 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

    Rom 5:6 For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

    Rom 5:7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.

    Rom 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

    Rom 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.

    Rom 5:10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

    Rom 5:11 And not only [so], but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

    Rom 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

    Rom 5:13 (For until the law sin was in the world: but sin is not imputed when there is no law.

    Rom 5:14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's transgression, who is the figure of him that was to come.

    Rom 5:15 But not as the offence, so also [is] the free gift. For if through the offence of one many be dead, much more the grace of God, and the gift by grace, [which is] by one man, Jesus Christ, hath abounded unto many.

    Rom 5:16 And not as [it was] by one that sinned, [so is] the gift: for the judgment [was] by one to condemnation, but the free gift [is] of many offences unto justification.

    Rom 5:17 For if by one man's offence death reigned by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.)

    Rom 5:18 Therefore as by the offence of one [judgment came] upon all men to condemnation; even so by the righteousness of one [the free gift came] upon all men unto justification of life.

    Rom 5:19 For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.

    Rom 5:20 Moreover the law entered, that the offence might abound. But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:

    Rom 5:21 That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus Christ our Lord.
