My OTHER “Verse Like That”

February 19, 2014

John’s Confirmation Verse was Psalm 37:4.   My first Verse Like That is actually a combo platter of John 3:16 & 17, but then there’s this OTHER Verse Like That.

My dad died when I was 17, in August just before my senior year in high school.  After the graveside part of the service I was standing outside the funeral home’s limo, the last one to get into a vehicle, pretty much frozen.

I can still recall consciously thinking that if this pain and loss was part of the package, I wanted no further part of any of it.  Getting into the car, I began to withdraw.

Fast-forward to quite some time later, and God thawed me out.  It took so long for many reasons, but finally love broke through.

Part of that renewal package is summed up by Christ in John 10:10, “I came so they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” (The Message version)

And that’s my OTHER Verse Like That.

What’s your verse that’s like John’s Confirmation Verse?
