Most Read New Testament Scripture Versus
John 3:16: 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. This verse needs no interpretation. No doubt, one of the most important scriptures written in the bible. However, the key here is "believe in Him." To Me, you must get to know someone before you can believe in them. You get to know Christ through the Word. "His written personality if you will."
Romans 8:28: And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him, and are called according to His purpose. "Notice it says, called according to His purpose." In other words, if you ask God for something to further His ministry and purpose, He will always grant it. He wants it to benefit the whole family of God, not just you.
Romans 12:2: Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is, his good, pleasing and perfect will. Don't follow the behavior and customs of this world, but rather let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think about things. Then you will learn what is pleasing to God and His will for you. (1 Peter 4:2, 2 Peter 1:4, 1 John 2:15-17).
Matthew 28:19: Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teach His word. All ethnos (all nations, all people), Baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 2:8: For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Grace is the source of faith. It has nothing to do with any man, woman, self, or action.
Galatians 5:22: But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith. When the Holy Spirit controls our lives we will produce good fruit. Love, joy, peace, kindness, patience, faithfulness. We will bring people to the truth and out of bondage from false teaching and traditions of men.
Romans 12:1: I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. Paul is telling us as Christians, to fully give ourselves to God, because of all He has done for us. This word "acceptable" Strong's G2101 is "euarestos" in the Greek, meaning fully agreeable and well pleasing. Agreeable in the written Word, and proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. (Ephesians 5:10). Learn what pleases the Lord. It is written in His letter to you. Follow the Word. "This is truly the way to worship Him."
John 10:10: The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. The thief's purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. (i.e. Satan). My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life. Eternal life! (John 3:16). In other words, follow Satan and you will die. Follow Christ and you will live.
Acts 18:10: For I am with thee, and no man shall set on thee to hurt thee: for I have much people in this city. God was with Paul, and many people in the city that believed would protect him. (Paul didn't fear anything because the Holy Spirit was with him).
Galatians 2:20: I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Paul was explaining that his old self was crucified with Christ; and now Christ lives within him by accepting Christ and believing in Him. (Romans 6:6, II Corinthians 5:15). This is what baptism is all about. Symbolically being buried with Christ and resurrecting to a new person with Christ living within you.
1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we confess our sins, we can count on God to wash away all our sins. Why? Because Christ became that one time sacrifice for our sins as well as the sins of the world. However, never confess to some man... Confess your sins directly to God when needed.
Romans 3:23: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God. We are all sinners and fall short of God's standards. (1 John 1:8-10). If we say we will never sin, we are only fooling ourselves and refusing to accept the truth. Many believe that once you are saved you cannot sin. "Not so." We are all sinners as long as we are in this flesh body. If we confess our sins (to the heavenly father, not some man), we can count on God to wash away all our sins because Christ became that one time sacrifice for our sins. Again, if we say we have not sinned, we are lying to ourselves and we are calling God a liar, because He said we have all sinned.
John 14:6: Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. Jesus couldn't make it any clearer than this statement: "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no one comes to the Father except through Me." (Christ shows us the way through example). "He gives us the truth through the Word of God." (He gives us eternal life because He defeated death at the crucifixion).
Romans 5:8: But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners. (What greater love is that). "This always brings me to one of the most important verses in the bible." For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosover believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16). Learn it, know it, believe it. "If you want to be a true Christian."
Matthew 28:20: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Teach these new disciples all things in His Word. "All of it." "And be sure that I will be with you till the end of the world." (End of this world age). Amen. (That's That).
Romans 6:23: For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Again, it is your choice. The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God leads to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. (John 4:36).
Galatians 5:23: Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. Gentleness, self-control. With these actions, there is no conflict with the law. What law? The ten commandments is a good start. Not one of these actions is against any of the ten commandments, or any other laws of God. (The commandments are good, they keep us on the right track to salvation).
1 Peter 3:15: But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. Be founded in the Word so that you can answer someone that may ask you about your Christian hope. "It is called sharing your faith."
2 Timothy 3:16: All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true. The truth will make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
Matthew 6:33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Seek the Kingdom of God! Live righteously, take action, and seek the "truth of His Word" and make Him first in your life, and He will give you everything you need for peace of mind and happiness in this world.
Hebrews 12:2: Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Endure till the end by keeping your eyes on Jesus, the one who endured the cross, and is now sitting at the right hand of God.
1 Peter 5:7: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Give all your worries and cares to God and He will handle it. "You don't need to handle tough times on your own."
Ephesians 2:10: For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Chosen before in the first world age, and it is God Himself who has made us what we are. He has given us new lives through Jesus Christ, that we should spend these lives helping others. Our works do not save us, but it is the only thing we can take with us when we die. (Revelation 14:13). God loves good workers, especially those who bring forth the truth in His Word.
James 1:2: My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations. If your life is full of difficulties and temptations, be happy and don't worry. (Worrying will get you nowhere, it only causes bad health and wrinkles). Why worry? You can't change the future anyway.
1 Corinthians 10:13: There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. You are never tempted with more than you can handle in life. (1 Corinthians 10:13, 2 Timothy 3:11). "God will always show you a way out when your in trouble."
Matthew 11:28: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. All that labor and hard work under a heavy yoke. Those who do the work of the Lord as true Christians, He will give you rest. "Christ will be their rest." (Matthew 11:28).
Hebrews 11:1: Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Faith gives us confidence that what we hope for will really happen and assurance about things we cannot see. (Romans 8:24-25, II Corinthians 4:18).
2 Corinthians 5:17: Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. When you believe and accept Christ you belong to Him and become a new person. The old life is gone and a new life has begun. (Matthew 9:16-17, Romans 6:4-6).
Hebrews 13:5: Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. Don't be a lover of money and material things of the world. Be satisfied with what you have. God is always there to take care of you. He has said, "I will never fail you, and never abandon you." (Matthew 6:25, 6:34, Isaiah 41:10, 41:17).
Romans 10:9: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. Again, a condition here. "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved." (1 John 4:2, 4:15).
Matthew 11:29: Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. Learn about Him... "Study the Word." Let Christ teach you and you will find rest. We are saved by grace yes. But we need to move past that to receive all the blessings He has to offer. A Yoke makes it easy and takes away the burden or hurt. (Matthew 11:29). Christ is meek (gentle), lowly in heart (coming down to you), rest to your soul (yourself), which gives you peace of mind. (Philippians 4:7).
John 16:33: These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. Jesus tells the disciples (as well as us), "I have told you all this so that you will have peace in Me." (Peace of mind). Jesus goes on to say that here on earth we will have many trials and sorrows. But not to worry, because He has overcome the world. We can have victory over the world because of Christ. (Romans 8:37, Galatians 1:4, 6:14, 1 John 4:4, 5:4). God is greater than the world, Satan, or any evil teachers in this wicked world. (Hebrews 2:14). We are to be over-comers in the world, defeating sin by trusting in Christ to help us. That is what faith is, and without it, it is impossible to please God.
Acts 1:8: But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. You will all receive power when the Holy Spirit comes to you and you will teach my Word throughout the world. This is for us today as Christians; we need the Holy Spirit to help us bring the truth to those who need it.
2 Timothy 1:7: For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. No spirit of fear here, but a spirit of power. Sound mind is one who uses common sense. (If it doesn't make sense, then its not true).
2 Corinthians 5:21: For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Christ knew no sin, but He was the offering for our sins. (Ephesians 5:2). He did this so that we could be made right with God through Him. (Philippians 3:9). "Praise God and thank you Jesus."
James 5:16: Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. This is not talking about telling another man your sins; it is about being a testimony to the living God. A good testimony can go a long way if it is true and from the heart. God will hear you if you are patient.
Romans 15:13: Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost. Paul always prayed for the brethren so that they would come to the truth and hope, being completely filled with joy and peace, because they trusted in Christ. As Paul explains, when you trust in Christ you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
John 11:25: Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: Jesus tells her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in Me will live, even after dying." (John 5:21, John 6:39-40, John 6:44).
Hebrews 11:6: But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. It is impossible to please God without faith. If you want to come to God, you must believe that He exists, and He will reward those who seek Him. Seek the kingdom of God and He will add to you daily. (Matthew 6:33, Luke 12:31). "The King and His Dominion." Take action and seek the truth of His Word and make Him first in your life, and He will always take care of you.
John 5:24: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. I tell you another truth, those who listen to My message and believe in the Heavenly Father who sent Me have eternal life. They will never be condemned for their sins, but they have already passed from death into life. (1 John 5:11-13). Through the Word of God, (His record). God has given us eternal life through Christ. Your choice! Eternal life through Christ, or death through Satan. Yes, as we have said before, the devil holds the power of death! (Hebrews 2:14). But, Satan's power was broken by the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Satan has no hold on you if you stay in Christ.
Acts 2:38: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Peter said to them; "each one of you must turn from sin," repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus, and you will receive the "Holy Spirit." This is a promise from God to whom ever will. (Baptism is to believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ).
Ephesians 3:20: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. His mighty power at work within us is able to do far more than we can ever imagine.
Matthew 11:30: For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. You can do it... His burdens are light and Christ will strengthen you. (Philippians 4:13). There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. (1 Corinthians 10:13). You will never be tempted, or given a burden that you can't handle in life, "if you are a believer."
Colossians 3:12: Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering. You were chosen by God who has given you this new life, and you should be kind and merciful to others. (This shows them the compassionate side of Christian). Most important is to be "patient" and wait on the Heavenly Father. Our Heavenly Father is longsuffering that we all come to repentance. (II Peter 3:9).
Hebrews 12:1: Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us. We are surrounded by a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith. Strip away the sin that may slow us down, so that we can run the race set before us by God with endurance. "We are to endure till the end." (Hebrews 6:15, Matthew 10:22, 24:13).
John 1:1: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. In the beginning (of the ages), was the Word (already pre-existent), and the Word (Christ), was with God, and the Word was God. Here "ages" refers to "eons," millions of years ago before anything existed. The Word (Logos), as well as the worlds were prepared by Him. (Hebrews 1:2, 11:3). However, the Word had no beginning. (1 John 1:1). We have seen and touched the Word of Life, Jesus Christ who was from the beginning. (Christ was the Word in the beginning). Just as God's elect were chosen in the beginning. (Psalm 90:2, Proverbs 8:23, Ephesians 1:4). Chosen before this world age. Who were the ones chosen at this time? Those who fought and stood against Satan in the first world age. (Again, God's elect). They were justified in the first earth age. (Romans 8:27-33). If you did not know that there was a earth age before this one, read our study topic titled "Three Earth Ages," and appendix 146, The foundation of the world, of the King James Companion Bible. As the spoken word reveals the invisible thought, so the "Living Word" reveals the invisible God. (Implying personal presence and relation). "The Word was God." (Denotes the conception of God as Infinite, Eternal, Perfect, Almighty).
1 Corinthians 6:19: What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? Don't you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, given to you by God. (1 Corinthians 3:16). Don't think you own yourself; "All souls belong to God." (Ezekiel 18:4, Psalm 100:3).
James 1:3: Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. When times are rough your patience has a chance to grow stronger in the word.
1 John 3:16: Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. Do not be afraid to go a little out of your way to help one who needs spiritual help. Christ went out of His way for you. "Its part of our job as a disciple of Christ."
John 14:27: Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Jesus would leave us at this time with a special gift. The gift of "peace of mind" that the world cannot give. Christ is "The Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6). So, He is telling us not to be troubled or afraid. (John 14:1). "No need to fear when Christ is on your side."
Hebrews 4:12: For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. The Word of God is like a double edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit. It will expose our innermost thoughts and desires. (Revelation 1:16). The sharp two edged sword represents the Word of God. The Word can cut deep into our soul and set people straight, or it can teach us and build us up.
John 15:13: Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friend. Christ laid down His life for us, because we are His friend. (John 10:11, John 10:15, Romans 5:6-8, Ephesians 5:2, 1 John 4:7-11). The key here is to treat others like you would like to be treated.
Romans 10:17: So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Faith comes from hearing the Good News about Christ. (Luke 11:28). Blessed are they that hear the Word of God and keep it. That means meditate on it and remember what you have learned. "Exercise the spirit."
John 1:12: But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: However, those who believed Him and accepted Him, He gave the right to become children of God. (Hosea 1:10, Galatians 3:26, Galatians 4:6, 1 John 3:1). Our Heavenly Father loves us so much that He calls us His children. Again, since most people of the world do not truly know God, they do not understand that we are His children. We are all Children of God (both Jew and Gentile), through faith in Jesus Christ.
2 Peter 1:4: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. Because of His great glory and excellence, He has given us precious promises to become partakers in His divine nature. We can spot Satan and his enticing tricks with this divine nature, and escape the world's corruption caused by human desires, (the lust of the world).
Hebrews 4:16: Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Come boldly to the throne of God. There we will receive His mercy and we will find grace to help us in time of need. (II Corinthians 12:9-10). We can take pleasure in our weaknesses for Christ's sake. "For when I am weak, them I am strong in Christ."
John 3:17: For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Jesus was sent into the world by the Heavenly Father to save the world, not to judge the world. (Matthew 1:23, Matthew 18:11, Luke 19:10, 1 Timothy 2:5-6, 1 John 2:2). Christ is the atoning sacrifice that paid the price on the cross for our sins. All our sins and for the sins of the world. But, this is only for our sins of the past, not our future sins. Again, we will always mess up at times and we must repent for our sins on a regular basis. (Your Heavenly Father is always there to forgive you).
1 Peter 2:24: Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed. Christ Himself bare our sins on the cross so that upon repentance we can be dead to sin and live a free life for what is right. Do not let some church, priest, reverend, or religious organization put you in bondage with traditions of men and false teachings. Once again, you are a free agent in Christ Jesus.
Matthew 28:18: And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. All power in heaven and earth. Never fear when you are of Christ. As it is written in (Zechariah 9:9-10), The first advent of Christ, He came as a babe riding upon a colt. And at His second advent, He will have dominion from sea to sea, and from the river even to the ends of the earth.
Colossians 3:23: And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. Do it as if you were working for the Lord, or for yourself.
Matthew 22:37: Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This covers the first five commandments. (the spiritual commandments).
Matthew 5:16: Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Let others see your good works (what the Lord has given you), and be the "example and light" to draw them towards God. Your good works are the only things you can take with you. They are your rewards in heaven. (Revelation 14:13).
Hebrews 4:15: For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Christ understands our weaknesses and knows what we need. He faced all of the same testing we do, and He did not sin. (Hebrews 2:17-18).
John 13:35: By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another. It is your love for one another that will prove to the world you are My disciples.
