  1. Margaret,

    I love these!! Thanks so much for the reminders – especially during Holy week. Praying for God to reveal Himself to you in new and exciting ways this week. Thank you for lifting our eyes to the cross and the empty tomb this season.

  2. Like the first image you have posted here, less of you and more of God, there are many other paradoxes like this in the scriptures.
    There is strength in weakness
    2 Cor. 12:10 …..For when I am weak, then I am strong.
    Those that give actually recieve.
    Acts 20 :35…..‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
    Serventhood to God actually leads to freedom
    Romans 6:22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the fruit you get leads to sanctification and its end, eternal life.

    My son’s name is Rohan Crosby. Rohan means “Ascending” and Crosby means “at the cross.”…This obviously comes from what I believe is the greatest paradox in scripture. In order for us to ascend, to be in a relationship with God, we must draw near to the cross. I hope that he truly does see this as he gets older, I pray that we all are changed by the thouoght you ahve shared today…”Less of me, God, and more of you!”

    I know this was more of a post and not a comment but I really liked that first one :) Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. Love, Love, and triple love these. Thanks!!! Hope you don’t mind I stuck one up on my blog. Really made me think!

  4. What an awesome way to end the day! So beautifully refreshing and inspiring! God bless you! Marlene Hershey@Alpha2468

  5. Love them all Margaret, but I was particularly struck by Mark 8:34. It is so direct in The Message version and is a great one to reflect upon: am I following or leading?

    Love this Tuesday treat of the verses in pictures…

  6. Thanks for sharing! So much to learn here.

  7. Jesus didn’t say any of these.

    • Hi Steve! We pulled these verses from The Message paraphrase. So while Jesus didn’t use these exact words, we think the fresh language makes passages that you’ve read again and again come to life again. Feel free to look up the passages using your favorite Bible translation.

  8. I really love these :) Mark
    9:23 , So beautiful of meaning and give me inspiring ^^. Thankyou for sharing..
    God bless you ..

  9. I really loved this quote “….nothing will be too much for you” It just said what I needed to hear. Thank you

    I like these quotes. They really stood out to me. I go to Chapel Of Grace. I have learned so much from them.

  11. i really love all these quotes…awesum..

  12. Im catholic and know most of these passages, and they are wildly misquoted. The one about the drivers seat makes me laugh cause of all the cars in Jesus’s time.
