Selected Bible Verses

In 1987, I selected some of my favorite Bible verses/passages and typed them into an 8-page booklet that I have been using, along with the Bible and other reading, for my “quiet times” of reading, reflection, and prayer.

My booklet also includes parts of G.N.U. Growthbooks (I and II) written & drawn by Steve Gregg, ©1984, ©1984.  The revised versions of both books (©1984, ©1991) are available online for free now, as they have been since 1983.


Here is an outline of general topics in the booklet.

page 1:  introduction & comments [.2 page],  why we need God's help (because we are sinners) [.8],

pages 2-4:  God forgives our sinning [.4 page],  being born again [.4],  principles for living-and-loving [1.9 pages],*

pages 4-6:  evidence for The Resurrection [.5],  faith in action [1.0],

pages 6-7:  Jesus is Lord [.4],  principles for living-and-loving [1.4],

page 8:  salvation and judgment [1.0].


* Oops:  On page 4, I explain that "Christianity is not following a set of ‘do this, don't do that’ rules.  It is a personal relationship with a powerful, loving God."  But then my quoting from John 14-15 includes "If you love me, you will obey my commandments" and "whoever accepts my commandments and obeys them is the one who loves me" and "if you obey my commands, you will remain in my love."  All of these "commands" seem to contradict my claim about "rules" so... in 1987, I thought about quoting more of His commands, and I should have, to show that “LOVE” was the main commandment of Jesus.  For example, He said "My command is this:  Love each other as I have loved you. (John 15:12.)" and "now I give you a new commandment:  love one another.  As I have loved you, so you must love one another. (John 13:34,)" and " ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the greatest and the most important commandment.  The second most important commandment is like it:  ‘Love your neighbor as you love yourself.’  The whole Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets depend on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:37-40,)".
