We visited my grandpa this weekend, for the last time on this earth. He passed away tonight near 11 p.m. He was a man who sought Christ in everything he did, and His love radiated from him.
I often hear you can learn a lot about a person from the looks of their Bible. Here’s a big box of his. And that’s not all of them.
After getting the phone call tonight, I pulled out one of his Bibles. Searching, I found a piece of paper in it with his handwriting–verses organized by category. I read a few from Peace and plan to read a few more from Free. But I had to share a few verses where he had underlined.
From Romans Chapter 12 (marked “Living Sacrifices” in his Bible)
1. Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God–which is your spiritual worship.
3. For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the measure of faith God has given you.
16. Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
