What is your favorite Bible verse?
My life verse has been Ephesians 5 verse 1-2, ‘Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.’ This verse has actually helped me a few times in my life. One more notable time, it got me out of a speeding ticket! I was filling in for a pastor at a church and I was running late. I only had the pastors phone number, and not the church’s. As you can probably guess, the CHP officer saw me and pulled me over. He asked me all the usual questions, specifically, ‘Do you know why I stopped you today?’ I gave him the whole story that I was a pastor and trying to get to the church to lead the Sunday Service. To my surprise, the officer asked me what my favorite bible verse was. I’m sure he was testing if my story was true and if I was really a pastor. I recited the verse. He looked at me, and said ‘Really? Well… God loves the other people on this freeway too. Go on and get to your church,’ and let me go. God has never forgotten me.
