Five life defining verses

July 19th, 2009

I was thinking about Scriptures today that have been life changing or life defining today. I was thinking which verses could be used to give you a hint of who I am. Here is five verses that I came up with.

1. Matthew 6:33 – Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

2. 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Never stop praying.

3. Ephesians 2:10 – For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

4. 2 Corinthians 5:18 – And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him.

5. 1 Thessalonians 5:11 – So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.

I found this an interesting exercise as there were a few that were pretty close to making it into the list. What five verses would you use to describe you to others?
