PART 7: Life Affirming Scriptures (all ESV)
Acts 2:28. You have made known to me the paths of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence
Acts 3:15. You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.
Acts 11:18. When they heard this, they had no further objections and praised God, saying, “So then, even to Gentiles God has granted repentance that leads to life.”
Acts 13:46. Then Paul and Barnabas answered them boldly: “We had to speak the word of God to you first. Since you reject it and do not consider yourselves worthy of eternal life, we now turn to the Gentiles.
Acts 17:25. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.
Romans 2:7. To those who by persistence in doing good seek glory, honor and immortality, he will give eternal life.
Romans 5:10. For if while we were enemies we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, now that we are reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.
Romans 5:18. Therefore, as one trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one act of righteousness leads to justification and life for all men.
Romans 6:4. We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life.
Romans 6:23. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:6. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace.
Romans 8:11. If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you.
1 Corinthians 6:3. Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life!
1 Corinthians 15:45. Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit.
The books of Acts and Romans are two of my favorite books of the New Testament. In Acts the Holy Spirit is the constant ‘actor’ throughout and Romans has been called the ‘meat and potatoes’ of Christianity. Either way they both provide more than a single meal.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, You continue to give us great spiritual food throughout the books of the New Testament and we are so very grateful. In all of them we find many blessings. – In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
