Last week I had the honor of being interviewed during a great online event called the “Bible Study Expo.” I got to share about “Unshakeable Faith” with all the women listening in. At the end of my time, the hostess asked me one more question: “What is your favorite Bible verse?”
I love God’s Word and so many verses have a special place in my heart. After about ½ second of wondering which verse I should share out of all the glorious truths in God’s Word, Galatians 2:20 began to come out of my mouth.
I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20, NIV
God embedded this verse in my heart about 25 years ago when He did some major work on my faith. Until that point it had been very shallow and me-centered. Then during my first ever women’s Bible study, God opened my eyes to see that my faith should be all about Jesus! (I know it seems obvious, but I guess I’m a slow learner.)
This verse embodies that truth. When I gave my life to Jesus, my entire life became His. “Kathy” should no longer exist. When people look at me they should see Jesus instead. I still have a long way to go, but at least now I have my eyes on the goal and am moving in the right direction.
What is your favorite Bible verse and why? I’d love to hear about it!
