I can't imagine anything that makes me feel more unworthy than knowing that Christ died for me.  Along with that, he has trusted me to the point where I have been allowed to read his Word....imagine that!  I typed up a Hall of Fame for bible verses that I enjoy.  Please don't think I'm trying to place these quotes above any others in Holy Scripture....I'm not.  I just took one verse from each of the 66 books of the bible to give you insight into those passages that I so much enjoy.  On several of the books I had to do more than one...I had no choice!  I hope you enjoy these.  If you’ve never read the whole Bible, after this trip you can at least tell your friends you’ve read from every book!  If you have a Hall of Fame subject that you want to send me to see what verse I feel would best match the category, email me and I'll get right back to you.  Your friend in Christ, Charlie:

Greatest start

In the beginning God...  Genesis 1:1

Glorious foreshadowing

And Abraham called the name of the place, The-LORD-Will-Provide; as it is said to this day, “In the Mount of the LORD it shall be provided.”  Genesis 22:14


Start of the circle – (3.14 equals Pi)

And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”  Exodus 3:14


Something we need to do more often:

‘You shall rise before the gray headed and honor the presence of an old man, and fear your God: I am the LORD.  Leviticus 19:32


Best drink ever for an adulterous wife

When he has made her drink the water, then it shall be, if she has defiled herself and behaved unfaithfully toward her husband, that the water that brings a curse will enter her and become bitter, and her belly will swell, her thigh will rot, and the woman will become a curse among her people.  Numbers 5:27


The great Sh'ma

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.  Deuteronomy 6:4


Wonderful family advice: 

And if it seems evil to you to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.   Joshua 24:15


Best reason to not make a rash vow

And Jephthah made a vow to the LORD, and said, “If You will indeed deliver the people of Ammon into my hands, then it will be that whatever comes out of the doors of my house to meet me, when I return in peace from the people of Ammon, shall surely be the LORD’s, and I will offer it up as a burnt offering.”///When Jephthah came to his house at Mizpah, there was his daughter, coming out to meet him with timbrels and dancing; and she was his only child. Besides her he had neither son nor daughter.///And it was so at the end of two months that she returned to her father, and he carried out his vow with her which he had vowed. She knew no man. Judges 11:30, 31, 34 & 39


Best decision of her life

Entreat me not to leave you,
      Or to turn back from following after you;
      For wherever you go, I will go;
      And wherever you lodge, I will lodge;
      Your people shall be my people,
      And your God, my God.  Ruth 1:16


Greatest protection in battle

Then David said to the Philistine, “You come to me with a sword, with a spear, and with a javelin.  But I come to you in the name of the LORD of hosts, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.  1 Samuel 17:45

How to handle adversity
It may be that the LORD will look on my affliction, and that the LORD will repay me with good for his cursing this day.  2 Samuel 16:12

The great unanswered

So they took the bull which was given them, and they prepared it, and called on the name of Baal from morning even till noon, saying, “O Baal, hear us!” But there was no voice; no one answered.  Then they leaped about the altar which they had made.  1 Kings 18:26


Jezebel's great day

Then he said, “Throw her down.”  So they threw her down, and some of her blood spattered on the wall and on the horses; and he trampled her underfoot.///So they went to bury her, but they found no more of her than the skull and the feet and the palms of her hands. 2 Kings 9:33 & 35


His answered prayer

And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!”  So God granted him what he requested.  1 Chronicles 4:10

Coolest verse for Hollywood special effects:

 Then the priests answered and said, “No.”
And Haggai said, “If one who is unclean because of a dead body touches any of these, will it be unclean?”

      And holy is His name.  Luke 1:46-49


The Holy Bible summed up

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  John 3:16


Greatest proof of His love

Jesus wept.  John 11:35


Slam dunk on Satan

It is finished.  John 19:30


Only requirements for gentile life after salvation: 

For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit, and to us, to lay upon you no greater burden than these necessary things: that you abstain from things offered to idols, from blood, from things strangled, and from sexual immorality.  If you keep yourselves from these, you will do well.  Acts 15:28, 29

How to be saved

Greatest strife in a believer and its certain remedy
I find then a law, that evil is present with me, the one who wills to do good.  For I delight in the law of God according to the inward man.  But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.  O wretched man that I am!  Who will deliver me from this body of death?  I thank God—through Jesus Christ our Lord!  Romans 7:21-25

Best lesson for female pastors

Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says.  And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church.  1 Corinthians 14:34, 35

And lest I should be exalted above measure by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I be exalted above measure.  2 Corinthians 12:7


Proof that the catholic church is wrong about their first pope and therefore, the whole pope thing

(for He who worked effectively in Peter for the apostleship to the circumcised also worked effectively in me toward the Gentiles),  Galatians 2:8


Surest answer to work-based religion

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast.  Ephesians 2:8, 9


Absolute beauty in the name

Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.  And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.  Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.  Philippians 2:5-11


His divinity defined

He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.  For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers.  All things were created through Him and for Him.  And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist.  And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.  For it pleased the Father that in Him all the fullness should dwell, and by Him to reconcile all things to Himself, by Him, whether things on earth or things in heaven, having made peace through the blood of His cross.  Colossians 1:15-20

Blessed hope:

Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.  And thus we shall always be with the Lord.  1 Thessalonians 4:17

Most wonderful command

Rejoice always.  1 Thessalonians 5:16 


Top reason not to idle

If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.  2 Thessalonians 3:10


Best description of how I feel

This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief.  1 Timothy 1:15


Hardest instruction for me to live by

And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all, able to teach, patient.  2 Timothy 2:24


Really good advice:
Reject a divisive man after the first and second admonition, knowing that such a person is warped and sinning, being self-condemned.  Titus 3:10, 11

What to do when wronged by a brother in Christ

If then you count me as a partner, receive him as you would me.  But if he has wronged you or owes anything, put that on my account.  Philemon -17, 18


Best advice for all situations in life

looking unto Jesus,...  Hebrews 12:2


Best start in a relationship with your Creator

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.  Hebrews 11:6


Sure proof that Christ is returning soon

Therefore be patient, brethren, until the coming of the Lord.  See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, waiting patiently for it until it receives the early and latter rain.  James 5:7


Number one place to put your woes:

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.  1 Peter 5:6, 7


Inspiration of Scripture

...knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.  2 Peter 1:20, 21


Greatest description of love - ever

God is love...  1 John 4:16

Important lesson concerning cults
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.  2 John -10, 11


The conversation I wish I could've heard

I had many things to write, but I do not wish to write to you with pen and ink; but I hope to see you shortly, and we shall speak face to face.  3 John -13, 14


Beautiful dedication

Now to Him who is able to keep you from stumbling,
      And to present you faultless
      Before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy,
      To God our Savior,
      Who alone is wise,
      Be glory and majesty,
      Dominion and power,

      Both now and forever.
      Amen.  Jude -24, 25


Best ending to every prayer

Even so, come, Lord Jesus!  Revelation 22:20


I certainly hope you’ve enjoyed this trip though the 66 love letters from our great and awesome God.  I’ve had a little fun and I hope you have to, but remember that as you read the Holy Bible, you are reading the very words of the Creator of everything you see, smell, taste, feel, understand, and perceive.  We need to treat His Word carefully and thoughtfully, never trifling with it, but treating it with respect and reverence.

I’d like to challenge you to read your Bible everyday.  Get up 15 or even 30 minutes early and show God that you care about Him as much as you care about your coffee or cable TV.  May you be blessed as you seek His face in all things and read His Word each day!

Oh God, you alone are worthy of my praise.  For you are Majestic in Holiness.

  Exodus 15:11.

I hope you enjoyed the tour through Grand Canyon National Park.
