We Christians love to quote Bible verses. We have some favorites: Genesis 1:1, John 3:16, Ephesians 2:8-9, Romans 3:23 and 6:23, and many, many others. While these verses are all good, sometimes we don’t think about the verses around them.
Just as a fun but helpful exercise and study, go look up all your favorite verses and read the verses around them. You can even read the chapters around them. You might find that some verses don’t mean what you thought they did. You might find that some of them mean more than you thought they did. You might find some new favorite verses to memorize! Plus, you’ll certainly learn more about what God wants you to know!
