ABC's of the Word

Pam at Grey Like Snuffie hosts "ABC's of the Word". I love doing these ABC's!! They stretch my mind and always once again overwhelm with the love of Jesus for me. Please be sure to visit Pam and see her verse for this week as well as all the other participants. Maybe you'd like to join us!

This week we're on the letter:

I have chosen a verse that is probably the most well known in the Bible. These words speak so much to me because they have changed my life.

My "B" word is BELIEVE.

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....John 3:16

Yes, these words have changed my life. Who is there that can love me as much as God? Who is the one whose blood has set me free? Who has changed me from the person I was to the person I am and am still becoming? Who is the One I can trust with everything in my life--from the smallest to the largest? Who has given back to me what I have lost--my hope, my trust, my joy plus given me an eternal life spent with God in Heaven?

All of this and more, simply because I have accepted and BELIEVE.



I found this video which completely expresses what this verse says to me. Watch it and see if this doesn't speak to you.


Be sure to stop by The Power of Your Love for Thankful Thursday!!

When you see the Miracles of God how can you NOT BELIEVE?

Yolanda said...

Sister, when you and I grasped the power and love behind that little word...BELIEVE, didn't our worlds just turn upside down and become complete?

When I did Believing God by Beth Moore, I felt like I went to a whole new level...becoming more whole in HIM simply by Believing Him because, Sister, He is BELIEVABLE all the time!

Oh Beth, you've reminded me of something. When I saw what you've posted about John 3:16 I was transported back to the '70's. Do you remember that at EVERY nationally televised pro ball game of any sport a fan held up a sign that said JOHN 3:16? We would search the crowd until we found it each time a game was televised. Wonder who that person or that group was?

Okay, I'm dating myself but now that I think about it it was amazing. How could the John 3:16 people get into every game?

Thanks! Lana

To Believe! It's so simple and yet the world makes it seem so difficult. I love how God's Word is so simple and all we do have to do is believe.

Have a blessed evening!

I cherish this song you have playing-it is my life song. I am doing the Beth Moore study Believing God in my quiet time. I am learning to grow my faith in ways beyound where I thought it could be.

I have been blessed. Thank you.
