Finding Your Life Verse

I have not seen much emphasis on this of late, except last Sunday in Church. Our Pastor decided to do a two-week series on Finding Your Life Verse. In my generation it seems that many of my peers had life verses. But the newer generation, they have this vague look when you ask them about it—like they don’t know what you are talking about—what?

A Life Verse can be your favorite verse from the Bible—you know, a verse that you really like or want to be like. This verse might describe a time in your life where the Scripture came to your rescue, which fit your situation. Of course, it is possible to have several favorite verses, but maybe there is one that always speaks to you.

Several years ago, I was looking for devotional books that I could read a little in every day. I found several books like this, but the one that caught my interest was One Hundred Verses that Changed the World, by William and Randy Petersen. So I bought it and found one-page stories of famous Christian leaders through the years with their favorite Bible verses illustrated by their life stories.

Here are few leaders and their verses that you might be interested in knowing about:

For myself, the day I was called into the ministry, God gave me this verse—Jeremiah 33:3.  At the time, it meant a lot, but over the years, it has meant much more. In my mind, it kind of summarizes what my life story has become. “Call upon Me and I will answer you and show you great and mighty things, that you do not know.” Things happen when I just Call Upon Him! Just like using the telephone!

I can think of many things that God has done in my life in response to this Life Verse.

The Challenge:

Maybe you have not found your Life Verse yet. I would challenge you visit this idea and find a Special Verse that suits you. Ask God to give you a Life Verse that just might become the compass that defines your life adventure in following God. Maybe, it is time to be looking for another verse, a verse that will characterize your future. How does your Life Verse relate you being in Children’s Ministry?

Be prepared to talk about your selection.
