Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. -1 Peter 3:11
What is a Life Verse? Here’s the best definition I have read (from Willowcreek): a verse or short passage that serves as a rallying cry to guide and focus the current season in your life. It is a truth or a challenge straight from God’s word that rings true for you at this moment in your life.
Mine comes from 1 Peter 3:11. After recent conflict, I have begun to realize that I have had more than my share of conflict and I am the only one that can do anything about it. As a Christian, it is important that people see Christ in me– not conflict and bitterness. The Holy Spirit has certainly convicted me of this and directed me to do something about it.
It is a good idea to have a life verse that you pay attention to daily, for whatever season of life you find yourself in.
May God bless you as He guides you to yours and you take it to heart.
