5 Bible Verses That Will Change Your Life FOREVER!

today I’m going to share with you five Bible verses that have literally changed my life and I trust that they will change yours that’s coming up next on the beat hey my friend welcome to the beat my name is Alan Parra thank you so much for tuning in if this is your first time here on this channel we answer frequently asked questions about the Christian faith we talk about dating and relationships from a Christian perspective and we do all sorts of other Bible based videos as well so if you’re new consider subscribing now certainly we should read and love reading the entire Bible but sometimes as we’re studying the Bible there are those verses that seem to jump off of the page and into our heart that have a significant profound impact on our lives and so today I just want to share with you five of those verses that have tremendously changed my life and real quick if you have a Bible verse that has had that type of profound impact on your life I would love to read it leave those in the comments section below number one on my list is second Timothy chapter two verses 20 and 21 I’m gonna read it so pay very close attention to what this verse says it says in verse 20 in a large house there are articles not only of gold and silver but also of wood and claim some are for special purposes and some for common use those who cleanse themselves from the latter will be instruments for special purposes made wholly useful to the master and prepare to do any good work so think of it this way in a wealthy home you may have paper plates and then you also have China and so paper plates are good they’re useful for common uses right but whenever you have people over you break out that special China because that is for a special purpose so the analogy here is pretty clear Paul’s basically saying in God’s family there are all sorts of different Christians you have some Christians that are used for common purposes and you have other Christians that are used for special purposes so Paul says the degree in which God will use my life for a special purpose depends heavily on me so if I have lust and anger and bitterness and unforgiveness and all this negative stuff in my heart I can’t pray and ask God do it I have to cleanse myself of these things that are blocking and hindering God’s full anointing to flow through my life so that I can be a special utensil used by God for a special purpose number two on my list is Philippians chapter 2 verses 3 and 4 and it reads do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit rather in humility value others above yourselves not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others so I chose this verse because I personally have a tendency towards being a very very selfish person and so I can get in this rut where I start thinking about what is in it for me I’m I getting my needs met how am I gonna benefit from this and this verse just keeps me grounded in it constantly the Holy Spirit constantly brings us.first back to my remembrance whether it may be in relationship with my wife or my friends or my family members of my co-workers or what have you and constantly cause me to think you know what how is what I’m doing in the best interest of them how am i putting their needs and their interests above mine or am i selfishly looking to get something out of this in return or can I continually give up myself without expecting anything in return this verse has had a profound impact on how I view my relationships with other people and how I live my life as a Christian the third one on my list is Ephesians chapter 3 verse 20 and it says now to him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think according to the power that works within us and this verse serves to remind me again and again that we serve a god that is greater than anything I could ever fathom so whenever we realize how big our God is we will start praying bigger prayers will have bigger dreams we’ll have bigger visions for our lives and we’ll also start to exercise bigger faith coming in at number four on my list is Acts chapter 20 verse 24 and this verse happens to be my personal life verse and I would encourage you to get a life verse as well beginning in verse 24 it says however I consider my life worth nothing to me my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace this verse reminds me that you know what in the midst of all my other pursuits whether it may be a career advancement or educational pursuits or ministry growth or family or leisure or travel or pleasure or what-have-you right that the main focus in my life is not my comfort it’s not my happiness but it is me fulfilling the very purpose that God has on my life and similar to Matthew chapter 6 verse 33 another bonus verse which says seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and then all these other things that I’m seeking for will be added to me so if I keep the main thing the main thing which is my relationship with God and fulfilling God’s purpose on my life then God will give me all of those other things in time if it is his will for my life and the fifth and final verse that I chose is Romans 8 verse 1 which says for there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus and the reason why I chose this verse is this you may not know this but for years and years I struggled with shame guilt and living in condemnation because I wanted to please God so very badly that every single time that I would mess up fall short slip up make a mistake whatever you want to call it I would just lock myself away in a prison of shame and guilt and condemnation because I was so frustrated with myself that I did not meet the expectations that I had set for myself in terms of obeying God with my life and this verse reminds me that you know what Jesus Christ has freed me from all of that guilt and all of that shame and all of that condemnation and I don’t need to live in that state any longer and so now whenever I make mistakes whenever I fall short all I simply do is confess my sins to God I repent of those sins and then I move on and move forward in Jesus Christ no longer living in shame or condemnation if you found this video helpful in any way feel free to
