What verse or passage of Scripture speaks most directly to your deepest spiritual need? What verse or passage would you say is your "favorite"?

This morning, I have turned the comments tab on in order for you to participate. I'm anxious to find out what your favorite Bible verse or passage is so, today, when you finish reading mine, take a moment and share with me your favorite verse or passage of Scripture.

Here's mine...

"In the past we also were foolish. We did not obey, we were wrong, and we were slaves to many things our bodies wanted and enjoyed. We spent our lives doing evil and being jealous. People hated us and we hated each other. But when the kindness and love of God our Savior was shown, he saved us because of his mercy. It was not because of good deeds we did to be right with him. He saved us through the washing that made us new people through the Holy Spirit. God poured out richly upon us that Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ our Savior. Being made right with God by his grace, we could have the hope of receiving the life that never ends" (Titus 3.3-7, NCV).

I especially love these verses because Paul summarizes the essence of the entire Bible in one paragraph. The spiritual state without God is contrasted to the blessed state of life in Christ and I discover, or better yet rediscover, that my destiny is staked to the redeeming work of Jesus Christ at Calvary.

Alright, it's your turn. Take a moment and click the tab at the bottom right corner of this blog entry and share with us your most meaningful verse of Scripture.
