The other verse of the day threads are dead because nobody is replying. I can only post 3 replies in a row before it locks me out of posting. So therefore I’m starting a new thread everytime I get locked out, unless a few bible-reading christians want to contribute in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Hear, O Isreal: The Lord our God, the Lord is one! You shall love the Lord you God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.
Deuteronomy 7: 17-21
If you should say in your heart, ‘These nations ware greater than I; how can I disposess them?’-- you shall not be afraid of them, but you shall remember well what the Lord your God did to Pharoh and to all Egypt: the great trials which your eyes saw, the signs and the wonders, the mighty hand and the outstretched arm, by which the Lord your God brought you out. So shall the Lord your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid. Moreover the Lord your God will send the hornet among them until those who are left, who hide themselves from you, are destroyed. You shall not be terrified of them; for the Lord your God, the great and awesome God, is among you.
But Jesus answered and said to them, " I will ask you one question; then answer me, and I will tell you by what authority I do these things: The baptism of John–was it from heaven or from men? Answer Me."
And they reasoned among themselves, saying, "If we say, ‘From heaven,’ He will say, ‘Why then did you not believe him?’ But if we say, ‘From men’ "–they feared the people, for all counted John to have been a prophet indeed. So they answered and said to Jesus, “We do not know.”
And Jesus answered and said to them “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these things.”
