Verses that inspire

Today is our day to share verses that have inspired us in the past few weeks. I hope that you will take a moment to comment and let us know if a verse has comforted you, convicted you, or uplifted you in the last few days. You never know how God will use your words to help another!

As children, we memorize verses for Sunday School, and some verses are inscribed on our hearts by the Spirit in times of pressure.
Sometimes in our times of reading and devotions a verse will inspire us. Other times we're looking for answers and a verse is right there when we need it.

These gems from the Word are so precious -- won't you share with us today?

Here is a verse that has meant so much to me recently, that I wanted to share it with you:

Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
    and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
    for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
    you are exalted as head over all.  (II Chronicles 29:11)

I was reading in Romans this morning, and came across this well known passage. I wonder what the world would be like and what the church would be like if every Christian followed these commands. I know I fall miserably short.

" Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves. 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. 12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. 13 Share with God's people who are in need. Practice hospitality. 14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn. 16 Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited. 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everybody. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my friends, but leave room for God's wrath, for it is written: "It is mine to avenge; I will repay," says the Lord. 20 On the contrary: "If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head." 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good."
