A Cool Verse

My wife was recently reading the Bible before bed and she came across this verse.  She said it made a perfect theme verse for a Jr. High ministry and I think I have to agree.  2 Corinthians 5:13-14 says:

  • If it seems we are crazy, it is to bring glory to God. And if we are in our right minds, it is for your benefit.  Either way, Christ’s love controls us.  Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. (NLT)
  • If we are out of our mind, it is for the sake of God; if we are in our right mind, it is for you.  For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. (NIV)

Now I know why I’m so weird.  It’s Biblical!
