Anonymous asked: My grandfather was just diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. What bible verses or stories, would be good to look to for comfort? Also, prayers are greatly appreciated.
I am so sorry to hear about your grandfather’s cancer. There are many survivors who have had stage 4 colon cancer and are living proof that you should not give up hope. If you need help or need a boost of hope look to God’s Promises for Strength.
Here are some verses you can share with your grandfather, we hope for the best and know that we’re praying for him and your family:
“Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” - Isaiah 41:10
“The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, My God, my rock, in whom I take refuge; My shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.” - Psalm 18:2
“The LORD is near to the brokenhearted, And saves those who are crushed in spirit.” - Psalm 34:18
“And let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.” - Galatians 6:9
“The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not want. He makes me lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside quiet waters. He restores my soul; He guides me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil; for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff, they comfort me. Thou dost prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; Thou hast anointed my head with oil; My cup overflows. Surely goodness and lovingkindness will follow me all the days of my life, And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.” - Psalm 23
“Wait for the LORD; Be strong, and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the LORD.” - Psalm 27:14
“For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. ‘Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.” -Jeremiah 29:11-12
“Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.” - John 14:27
“And He shall wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there shall no longer be any death; there shall no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away.” - Revelation 21:4
“Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life, which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.” - James 1:12

Anonymous asked: Can you explain John 14:6 why is he the truth the way and the life?
We don’t want to claim something about Jesus that He wouldn’t claim Himself. If the gospels are historically reliable (which they are), then we have Jesus’ own words. By examining them we discover that He claims to be the only way to God. In John 14:6, Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” This doesn’t leave much room for debate. Indeed, Jesus says whoever rejects Him rejects God, for God sent Him (Luke 10:16). So, according to Jesus, there’s no other path to God. If you wish to follow Jesus, you must accept the claims He made about Himself! :)
Then re-blog this. like this, or leave a comment.
AND If you’re feeling capital “K” krazy then do all three! LMBO!
Do that and we’ll check out all your blogs and follow back if we dig them. :D

Anonymous asked: Hi, is accepting Jesus into your heart "unbiblical"?? If so, why??
Wow! What a really good question.
God speaks to us in many different ways, but the main way He speaks to us is through the word (the bible). When we read the bible we will always come across verses telling us to have faith, confess, believe, repent, draw near to God, etc.
In more simple terms, the prayer of salvation/sinner’s prayer/asking Jesus into one’s heart is a very short/partial/summed up version of salvation of the bible.
So, technically speaking.. It is biblical.
When someone says the prayer of salvation they confess that they are a sinner (Romans 3:23), they ask forgiveness from God (1 John 1:9), they say Jesus is their Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:9), and they give thanks to God for the gift of eternal life that is now bestowed upon them.
Now, this is the part where I bombard you with a bunch of bible verses. heh. heh…

- “And this is eternal life: [it means] to know (to perceive, recognize, become acquainted with, and understand) You, the only true and real God, and [likewise] to know Him, Jesus [as the] Christ (the Anointed One, the Messiah), Whom You have sent.” - John 17:3
- “All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on him the sins of us all.” - Isaiah 53:6
- “Our actions will show that we belong to the truth, so we will be confident when we stand before God. Even if we feel guilty, God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything.” - 1 John 3:19-20
- “Because if you acknowledge and confess with your lips that Jesus is Lord and in your heart believe (adhere to, trust in, and rely on the truth) that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” - Romans 10:9
- “So repent (change your mind and purpose); turn around and return [to God], that your sins may be erased (blotted out, wiped clean), that times of refreshing (of recovering from the effects of heat, of [a]reviving with fresh air) may come from the presence of the Lord” - Act 3:19
- “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day.” - John 6:4
- “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” - Acts 4:12
- “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6
BOOM! And we’re done. Hahah.
Hope I answered your question. :-)

A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of.
1 John 3:15
Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
1 John 4:20
If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen.
Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.
Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.
“You shall not hate your brother in your heart, but you shall reason frankly with your neighbor, lest you incur sin because of him.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7
Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
A soft answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger.
A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.”
The fear of the Lord is hatred of evil. Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.

Anonymous asked: what are some verses about God's love for us and how to love ourselves?
Hey! I have some stellar verses on God’s love coming right at ya:
Romans 8:37-39 No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
Romans 5:8 but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God. who loved me and gave himself for me.
Ephesians 2:4-5 But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, evenwhen we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ— by grace you have been saved—
1 John 4:9-11 In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
And for the verses on “how to love ourselves” not sure if there are any of those verses in the bible. BUT the bible does tell us to treat other the way we want to be treated Matthew 7:12 and to love our neighbor as ourselves Mark 12:31 and to do these things you have to love and respect yourself first. You can’t give to others what you don’t have.
If your having trouble loving yourself ask God to help you. Who better then love Himself?
God is Love - 1 John 4:8

You have to, have to, have to read your bible!
Don’t put off reading your bible for more then two months or one month, or even 3 weeks. What I’m about to write is going to be very nerdyish but heck with it, I’m a nerd and I really don’t care.
Just like a car needs gasoline to run on, you need your spiritual fuel to run on, that spirituel fuel being your bible, so fuel up and read!
There is not other way you will stop feeling “weak” if you don’t get your energy from where you need it most readin your bible. READ ON!
“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. It is God’s way of preparing us in every way, fully equipped for every good thing God wants us to do.” - 2 Timothy 3:16-17
