Holy Words - Bible Verses to Comfort and Convict

Updated on June 21, 2014

Bible Verses that are Good to Know

I always wince a little when I see a list of "Best Bible Verses." I wince because "best" implies that there's a "worst" and there just are no bad Bible verses.

"All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness"

- 2 Timothy 3:16 NIV

Even though there are no best Scripture Verses, there are verses that Christians claim and cling to - verses that seem to have special application to certain stages of our lives. Here you'll find a list of some of those verses.
