    What are the most important Bible verses that we should be reading today ?

    Ones for inspiration? Instruction? Love? Warnings? Directions?

    John 3:15-18     That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

    In the New International Version translation, I enjoy Matthew 6:5 through Matthew 6:15. I think they are wonderful and are sadly ignored. All of Matthew 6 is pretty good though.

    I totally agree with JThomp42, because you have to be a believer but to those that do believe, I think the whole bible needs to be focused on at this point in time. There are key points in it for each and every one of us. Everyone needs their own different verse to guide or lead them.

    2 Cor 5:11 Since, then, we know what it is to fear the Lord, we try to persuade others. What we are is plain to God, and I hope it is also plain to your conscience. 12 We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart. 13 If we are “out of our mind,” as some say, it is for God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you. 14 For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

    16 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: 19 that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. 20 We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. 21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

    Paul encourages us to teach this ministry, but sadly the church does not teach this and has followed another gospel than the one Paul taught.

    Well, if you're not Born Again, then John 3:16-18; which is "the gospel" which Paul says is "the power of salvation to all who believe" in Romans 1:16, 17.
    If you're already in Christ, then you should be reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation systematically and the Spirit will apply whatever text you're on to your situation.  Been doing it for 32 years and it works quite well.
    The Navigators used to have a program called The Daily Walk that got you through in 1 year.  I'm working on time #24, at Matthew, appropriately, given the Christmas Season.
    Have a great day!!

    For the unsaved, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 3:10, 1 John 5:13, and other Scriptures related to the reason Christ came to earth.  For believers, it depends on where you are in your spiritual walk.  Our prayer, as my pastor says, should be to do the things that God is blessing.

    The bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington, DC (Bishop Mariann Edgar Budde) sent a message to clergy and parishioners on 12/14 to announce her position and resolve to take a stand against weapons whose only purpose is to kill large numbers of people. I thought the scriptures she chose validated the pain and sorrow of the grieving parents:

    Jeremiah 31:15-17
    "Thus says the Lord: A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping. Rachel is weeping for her children; she refuses to be comforted for her children, because they are no more."

    Lamentations 2:19
    "Arise, cry out in the night, as the watches of the night begin; pour out your heart like water in the presence of the Lord. Lift up your hands to him for the lives of your children."

    As we watch vigil after vigil and one funeral after another this week, let us join in the meditation and grieve with the families of Newtown, CT.
