Among these Bible verses, there are beautiful promises of love and care, statements about the Lord’s beauty, commandments, prophecies, and more that are all meant to equip you for greatness in the Christian life.
Let’s discover these 10 edifying, best Bible verses that every Christian should know by heart:
John 14:6: A Statement About Christ’s Uniqueness
John 14:6: “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me”.
This one is specially important because it states the Lord’s uniqueness.
This beautiful uniqueness is what challenges just about every pagan religion in the world, because it states that Jesus (and NOT Buddha, Mohammad or Confucius), is the only one the world should believe in.
2. Matthew 22:37: A Commandment of Love
Matthew 22:37-28: “Jesus said to him, “‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ 38 This is the first and great commandment”.
3. Matthew 6:31-33: A Promise of Love And Care
Matthew 6:31-33: “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”.
This is a promise of love and care. It is speaking about all financial and economic things in a Christian person’s life.
4. Matthew 5:6: A Promise of Justice
Matthew 5:6: “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled”.
this promise given by our Lord in the Beatitudes states that those who do wrong will pay for their wrongdoings. Don’t believe in karma, believe in Jesus. This is his promise and also a warning.
5. Hebrews 12:14: A Commandment of Holiness
Hebrews 12:14: “Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord”.
It’s incredible when you first find out that without holiness, you can’t see the Lord.
This goes in perfect synchrony with what the Bible says in many other places as well, that in order to be worthy of seeing Jesus when He comes back again one must flee all immorality and deviousness of this world.
Living a holy life is also put in the Bible in a beautiful metaphor of keeping our spiritual ‘clothes’ in a clean and unblemished shade of white.
6. Job 2:9: Amazing Trust In The Midst of Bad Times
Job 2:9: “Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!”
10 But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips”.
Job’s wife was absolutely sure that because of everything bad that Job was going through, that he had to forget about God and ‘curse’ God.
His answer probably stunned her faithless heart.
This Bible verse is also an amazing implicit promise: that we can trust God in absolutely every circumstance because He always has our best interest at heart.
7. Mark 16: 15-16: Our Beloved Duty To Share Christ
Mark 16:15-16: “And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned”.
This Bible verse is of course one of the best Bible verses ever.
It encompasses our duty to share our beloved Lord to a world dominated by all kinds of immorality, sin, wickedness, mental and physical problems:
Because they must know Christ is the ONLY solution to their problems, and not Mohammad, Buddha, karma, the Hindu gods or anything like that, which are all false answers the devil provides.
Which brings us to the next and one of most amazing and best Bible verses ever:
8. Acts 9: 36-37: The Promise of Faith Healing
Acts 9: 36-37: “At Joppa there was a certain disciple named Tabitha, which is translated Dorcas. This woman was full of good works and charitable deeds which she did. 37 But it happened in those days that she became sick and died”.
The city of Joppa, known today as Jaffa in present-day Israel was the setting of this amazing story of faith healing.
Tabitha aka Dorcas, was a faithful servant of our amazing Lord that just got sick one day and died. But that wasn’t the end of the story.
Then we read on the verse 39:
“And all the widows stood by him weeping, showing the tunics and garments which Dorcas had made while she was with them. 40 But Peter put them all out, and knelt down and prayed. And turning to the body he said, “Tabitha, arise.” And she opened her eyes, and when she saw Peter she sat up”.
If people had faith in God like in those times at Joppa, doctors would go out of business.
Aids, cancers and lots of other things are incurable, yet most Christians still want to go to doctors.
We all NEED to give God the opportunity to glorify himself. He will not fail.
If you get sick, let go of doctors. Trust God. It wasn’t God’s will to let Tabitha’s death last long. God was faithful. Hallelujah.
Now, we wrap this up with the next two, the most important things to look forward to in your Christian life: the Blessed Hope and the judgement of the last days.
9. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17: The Blessed Hope
1 Thessalonians 4:16-17: “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord”.
This is a Bible verse you should ALWAYS keep in mind. You should start every single day of your life thinking “Christ might come today”.
It will inspire you every single day of your life to live worthily so you can be taken when Christ comes again.
10. 1 Timothy 4:1-2: Knowing What’s To Come
1 Timothy 4:1: “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron”.
This one last Bible verse that all Christians should know by heart is the one that indicates what will literally come in the next decades before Christ comes in the Rapture.
It will be a time of a lot of decadence and ‘happiness’ in the world, where the last thing on people’s mind will even be the end of the world.
Knowing this, we must keep firm.
In conclusion, my dear Christian, I encourage you to use these which are some of the best Bible verses a Christian can focus on because they’re literally like pillars that define the amazing Christian life.
When you practice these, they will touch every aspect of your life, making it amazing and better than anything the world can offer. God bless you!
