Evangelism Bible Verses

Could you all share with me (and each other) your favourite bible verse/s if you wish to show a non-believer how much God loves him/her?

I would add John 3:16 to the verse I gave in my previous question which was Romans 8:32.

The Bible between two covers is pretty much a development of the printing press.
---Cluny on 2/26/15

This is a truth you stated above.
I view and hear scripture differently now, than in my youth.
Listening and searching for two or more of GOD's scriptural hand picked scriptural servants and witnesses proclaiming the truths GOD embedded for those that seek them.
If presented by voice now that would be fine. Although they rarely are.
Amo_3:7 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.
Rom_1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)

I like reading along. Although it is harder sometimes when the Pastor is using a different translation.

I have had many people tell me a certain verse says this or that. But many times I could not find them in any translation. They were their personal wishes not the actual words of the Bible.

Cluny, I (obviously wrongly) thought that by the word 'followed' you meant followed what was being read by the vicar using an actual bible in my hand. \\

You've never explained why you think this should be done.

I know many ministers who don't like looking at their congregations and see them looking down during services with their noses in books, be they hymnals, prayer books, or Bibles.

Glory to Jesus Christ

"If you followed the daily lectionary for Morning and Evening prayer, you would go through almost the entire Bible in a year."

Cluny, I (obviously wrongly) thought that by the word 'followed' you meant followed what was being read by the vicar using an actual bible in my hand. Most churches do that - my church, at that time, did not and that is what I was pointing out.

I shall now leave this subject alone.
---Rita_H on 2/26/15


\\Cluny, you are correct about there being two bible readings at each service but we did not follow them in copies of the bible as we had none. \\

Why should you have?

Do you think that in the first few centuries people followed along in their own personal copies of the Scripture as it was read in worship?

The Bible between two covers is pretty much a development of the printing press.

Listening attentively and reverently as the Word is proclaimed in worship is important, too.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

I left aged 18 AFTER being wonderfully saved in a denomination where the bible was given an important place.
---Rita_H on 2/26/15

You made my morning better by declaration.
Who do we trust? Depend on? Who will not lie to us? Who will not teach or sell us something that doesn't make sense?
GOD. His scriptures if sought with the whole heart, for multiple witnesses frees us from all other gods, false doctrines, etc. No matter where one attends with other seekers.
Only one GOD. One doctrine...his. His has witnesses that paid a price as well so that we might see...Truth. Light. Another Country...
Mat_22:32 I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.
---Trav on 2/26/15


Cluny, you are correct about there being two bible readings at each service but we did not follow them in copies of the bible as we had none. Never was there a discussion in Sunday school about the bible. When the vicar visited homes the bible was not discussed or explained. He came for a cup of tea and a cake just like ANY OTHER PERSON might. No vicar we ever had behaved as a shepherd of a flock. I left aged 18 AFTER being wonderfully saved in a denomination where the bible was given an important place.

... left to the priest),...I am truly grateful that others came into my life...
Individual verses are sometimes very important indeed.
---Rita_H on 9/15/14

I believe you because of my own experiences, which vary from yours to Cluny's.
One can find all these experiences stated in scripture. A beautiful thing that fed and sustains my faith.
For example perhaps yours and definately my experience:
Rom_10:20 But Esaias is very bold, and saith, I was found of them that sought me not, I was made manifest unto them that asked not after me.
Isa_65:1 I am sought of asked not, I am found of sought me not: ...
Jer_10:21 For the pastors are become brutish, have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper...

\\Having been brought up in the Anglican church where we never used bibles (that was left to the priest), were never encouraged to own one and read it at home (and never used one in Sunday School)\\

I don't know where you got that information.

In my brief foray into the Episcopal Church (which was not the church I thought I was joining), I had a BCP/KJV bound up together.

There were always at least two Scripture readings at EVERY service.

If you followed the daily lectionary for Morning and Evening prayer, you would go through almost the entire Bible in a year.

//What Bible verse/s did St. Paul quote on Mars Hill?//
No doubt Paul preached "his gospel"
1 Cor 15 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES,
4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES:
---michael_e on 9/15/14




Having been brought up in the Anglican church where we never used bibles (that was left to the priest), were never encouraged to own one and read it at home (and never used one in Sunday School) I am truly grateful that others came into my life much later who DID give me verses of scripture and explained to me the need to know Jesus personally.

Someone witnessed to my mother on a train whilst she was travelling to see me. She'd never had such an experience before. Individual verses are sometimes very important indeed.
---Rita_H on 9/15/14


Quoting bible verses to people who consider themselves Christians, and respect the bible, can be quite effective.
---StrongAxe on 9/13/14

These statements, and found Cluny's true.
Have discovered that here, an in public that many un-preached, un-taught verses make many angry. Most especially selfie preacher types.

Self discovery for myself is how uneffective i was on a personal mission trying to lead in sheep....instead of GOD. GOD may not be interested in the sheep we are trying so hard to put in our doctrinal "pen","cube","box". Now i let GOD do the drawing,revealing,pointing. If he wants me lend a paw or bark, I'll be his sheepdog.
Much more rewarding letting GOD be GOD.

**//When St. Paul preached on Mars Hill, did he quote Bible verses to them?//
Of course
---michael_e on 9/14/14**

What Bible verse/s did St. Paul quote on Mars Hill? Be specific please. Obviously, it would have been from the OT at that point.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

---michael_e on 9/14/14


Good point, StrongAxe.

When St. Paul preached on Mars Hill, did he quote Bible verses to them?

Or did he speak to them of that which was familiar to them?

Go to an average secular American and say, "All our righteousness is as filthy rags," and he will probably reply, "But that's not true. I think I'm a good person."

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 9/13/14


Jasper:

People listen to authorities they respect. Quoting bible verses to people who consider themselves Christians, and respect the bible, can be quite effective. But quoting bible verses at people who have never even heard of the bible, or who consider it no more important than the phone book, will have little to no effect. These days, you'd be much more likely to get someone's attention by quoting an effective moral passage from a Harry Potter book, as more young people have read that then a bible.

\\Well Clunny, Bible Verses that shoots straight at your heart must be aiming right that you ridicule the Word of God the way you do friend. I will pray that God will open your heart to the Word.
---Jasper on 9/13/14\\

But Bible verses will not work with the average 21st century post-Christian.

You can quote Bible verses at one until you're blue in the face, and the most you'll get is a dazed, bored expression.

If you don't believe me, try it sometime.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

No one Bible verse, or even combination, can possibly be a magic bullet shooting down sin in others.

After all, it didn't work for Jesus, did it? Why should it work for you?
---Cluny on 8/29/14

You are right in that there is no magic bullet verse for the unsaved.
First of all if they are not drawn of GOD, they are drawn of men.
Christ did succeed in that the "sheep" he sought were searched for and found. Otherwise there would be no Christianity today. The result of being blessings the entire world has fed on since.

Mat_15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

Joh_6:44 No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

Eze 37:13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
Heb 8:10 For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:
Heb 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more.

Romans 8:28 and John 3:16
---Andreea on 9/3/14


"If you wish" is not the same as "that you wish".
Those verses could be used by the believer as encouragement to persevere. The greatest witness-testament a Christian could lay down is the example of their living.

Luke 10:1_11 "After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come ..."

Preparation, approach and delivery are important elements of conveying a message with full force.
---Nana on 8/31/14


Dear Rita,
I also agree with Cluny. No amounts of passages concerning the Cross will help those who are perishing. We don't know who are the one's that God is going to draw to Himself. But the word of God comes in power to those who are being saved by God. Here is a good passage concerning what I am speaking about,
"For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God." (1 Cor. 1:18).
And here is another,
"Knowing, beloved brethren, your election by God. For our gospel did not come to you in word only, "but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit" and in much assurance..." (1 Thess. 1:4,5).
---Luke on 8/31/14


Rita_H:

Cluny is right. If someone doesn't believe in God, a quote from someone who doesn't exist won't make that person believe in that person who doesn't exist.

After all, Santa Claus is just (because he rewards those who have been good), but I'm pretty sure that such goodness of character doesn't make YOU (or most others) believe in Santa Claus.

\\Cluny you seem incapable of answering a question as it was asked and just use words to inflame others. \\

Rita, the question you asked HAS no answer.

As late as 50 years ago, at least in the USA, what the Bible said had moral weight among people and was taken seriously, even if in the breach rather than the observance.

Not now.

I understand this is even more true in Europe.

We simply no longer have a common universe of discourse with non-believers. I'm not the only one who has noticed this. So has Misty Irons, wife of a strict Calvinist minister.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 8/29/14


Cluny you seem incapable of answering a question as it was asked and just use words to inflame others. You ruin most questions by your attitude so I have decided to read no more. Apologies to others who will answer but I wish I'd never asked.
---Rita_H on 8/29/14


Bible verses are not going to mean anything whatsoever to the typical 21st century secular Post-Christian.

No one Bible verse, or even combination, can possibly be a magic bullet shooting down sin in others.

After all, it didn't work for Jesus, did it? Why should it work for you?
