My favorite scriptures


People have often asked me, "what is your favorite scripture verse?" I'm sure everyone who is a Christian has been asked that question before, and especially those who are in pastors or pastor's wives.

My favorite book of the Bible is Romans, and specifically chapters 6-8, and if I had to narrow it down further, chapter 8.

But lately I have been thinking of a favorite scripture I lean on and live by and it would probably be II Corinthians 9, verse 8:

"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work."

Good stuff, huh? And the runner up would be...

II Peter 1:3 "His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness."

Particularly regarding ministry these are two verses I lean on all the time.
