One More Chance to Win

Last June, Dan walked into my office and said, “I want to do a Bible giveaway… a huge Bible giveaway.” We talked through the details, called some of our publisher friends, and a few weeks later launched a six month promotion in which we gave away 78 ultra-premium Bibles, worth over $12,000.
The response to the promotion was overwhelming, with thousands of people participating. One of the highlights for me was contacting the winners every month. Numerous times I got to hear stories of people who were so very blessed by the promotion. One email I received was from a preacher who had won the NASB Large Print Bible. He wrote, “This Bible will go to good use as my vision is failing (even though I am only in my 30’s) and I have been struggling reading from my NASB as I preach.” It brought me such joy to send him his Bible.
While we only had 78 people selected as winners in the Great Bible Giveaway, in a way everyone is a winner. The whole purpose of the giveaway was to introduce people to our online Bible. During the promotion, we saw site traffic and usage of increase by more than 20% and many people sent in emails thanking us for sponsoring the promotion because it was through the giveaway that they learned about the site.

One More Bible to Give Away

During the course of the giveaway, one of our winners sent his Bible back and asked that we give it away to another person. So, honoring his request, here’s one last chance to win. Leave a comment on this blog post with your favorite Bible verse. On Monday (Jan 18) we’ll select a winner at random from the comments.
NOTE: Our randomly selected winner is Billy Stevens. While you can no longer enter to win, please feel free to continue posting your favorite verses in the comments below.

  1. When people ask me for my favorite passage from the Bible, I always reply: Gen 1:1–Rev 22:21. No joke, I love the whole Bible. A very significant verse in my conversion was: For whoever wishes to save his soul will lose it, but whoever loses his soul for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. Mark 8:35

  2. Tudor Lance says

    “And I will give them one heart, and put a new spirit within them. And I will take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances and do them. Then they will be My people, and I shall be their God.” – Ezekiel 11:19-20
    This encouarages my heart because of the promise of what the Church will be through faith and the life that Jesus empowers in us through it.

  10. Romans 8:22-23 “We know that the whole creation has been groaning as in the pains of childbirth right up to the present time. Not only so, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for our adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies.”
    For those of us who are disabled, and many who are growing older, this is a very special verse – the “redemption of our bodies”. And the whole creation groans with us!

    Ezra 7:10

    If there is one thing that I would save if my house is burning, that will be my computer with Logos. The tools you provide us to study God’s Word helps me to discern the chalenges of today in the light of God’s Word and how to stay clear of the pitfalls. It helps me to keep the light burning in the dark world. 2 Pet 1:19

  14. One more chance! Thank you Logos!

  15. Please enter me into the competition.

  16. Dean McKenney says

    I appreciate that you are giving Bibles away. I hope and pray that the Bibles that are given are going to be Bibles that are being read and digested.
    My favorite verse is Psalm 23.1 – The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

  17. Thank you for this opportunity. Matthew 4:19. Blessings on your ministry.

  18. Kendall Sholtess says

    My favorite Bible verse is 1 John 1:1 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] . John says that his eyes have seen Jesus and that he touched Him. I am so encouraged by this fact–
    that Jesus is real, as contrary to any of the pagan gods or any fairy tale. That gives me hope that my faith is not in vain.

  19. David Lemmons says

    Favorite Bible Verse: John 9:4
    Logos 4 is AWESOME!!!

  20. my favorite bible verse – well I have many but definitely on that list is Is. 26:3

    whose mind is stayed on you,

    Genesis 18:19

  23. James Dumont says

    It’s my favorite because the Holy Spirit used it to confirm to me my salvation.

  24. Stephen Farlow says

    My favorite verse if Proverbs 3: 5 -6 where it speaks on not leaning upon our own wisdom, but instead leaning upon God, and, if we do so, He will make our path straight. The Holy Spirit lead me to this verse one Sunday while sitting in a worship service and it spoke very loudly to me. As humans, we all to often tend to do our own thing without inviting God to direct us. This verse has had an impact on my life and still does.

  25. rodman2000 says

    I would like to say may GOD bless the individual, and thanks.
    Here is my favorite scripture:
    Philippians 2:1-5

  31. Jerry A. Edinger says

    Thanks so much for your great product!
    Only fear the LORD, and serve him in truth with all your heart: for consider how great things he hath done for you.
    1 Samuel 12:24

  32. I’m new to Logos, just started using and excited to have. Sorry if you’ve received this post several times as I’m having trouble figuring out how to preview and submit. My favorite verse that I came across in 2009 is Hosea 6:3 NASB: So let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going forth is as certain as the dawn; and He will come to us like the rain, Like the spring rain watering the earth.

  33. Virginia Platt says

    My favorite verse is John 14:1 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] “DO NOT let your hearts be troubled (distressed, agitated). You believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely on God; believe in and adhere to and trust in and rely also on Me.” Peace is hard to come by in this world until you realize that peace comes from Jesus and you follow the command given in this verse then it is so much easier!

  34. Jonny Vliet says

    …being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Phil. 1:6)

  36. Isa 43:10
    “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me.

  37. Wayne Giese says

    Logos team,
    God bless you in your work. Galatians 2:20

  38. My favorite Bible verse is from 1 Timothy 4:12 as it is encouraging for those beginning at a young age and also sets a standard for the Christian life. “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.”

  39. Lamentations 3:22-24 (ESV)
    The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
    his mercies never come to an end;
    they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness.
    “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    “therefore I will hope in him.”

    Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity, show yourself an example of those who believe.

    As a young man I took this life verse, now at 60 being a little less youthful, it is still relevant.

  42. Donn Heinrich says

    2 Timothy 3:14-17

  43. I am especially fond of Jeremiah 29:11.
    For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. The New King James Version. (Nashville: Thomas Nelson, 1982).
    This text is part of Jeremiah’s letter to the exiles and it offers a promise of restoration. This verse sets the stage for one of the great Old Testament evangelistic passages where God says that if you truly seek me you will find me. I find encouragement in God’s love for mankind and the sacrifice that was made on the cross for our sins so that we can have a life greater then we ever dreamed about.
    Thanks Logos for all you do. It has helped me to help others.

  44. Luke 6:46 “Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say?”. ———- It’s not enough to know the Word of God, we have to live it!!

  45. Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what shall a man give in return for his soul?” -Matthew 16:24-26 (ESV) [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)]

  47. Luke 6:41-42

  48. Joel ten Brinke says

    “Blessed be the LORD, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle; ” (Psalm 144:1, ESV)

  49. Philippians 2:1-11. A passage I re-discovered a couple of years ago while preaching on Joseph and his dreams. This passage has stuck with me and informed much of what I think and do. It is an excellent reminder of what our life in Christ is to look like.

  50. I love Philippians 4:6-7
    6 rdo not be anxious about anything, sbut in everything by prayer and supplication twith thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And uthe peace of God, vwhich surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
    The Holy Bible : English Standard Version. (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2001).
    This verse promises us God’s peace and strength when we turn to him in thanksgiving and prayer.

  51. I became a Libronix Pastor’s Collection uses back in 2002, and after updates and a couple of collection updates was using the Logos 3 Scholars ND when I heard about the Logos 4 release. I immediately upgraded to the Scholars Platinum in Logos 4 and am so glad I did. Even though I am still exploring and playing with different ideas about templates and layouts, my sermons and Bible teaching preparation has surged ahead greatly! I am amazed at the power of this new version, and as I have been renewing my proficiency in the Greek personnally at the end of last year, the added language tools over what I had is astounding.
    I wish I could give my favorite Bible verse, but to select one verse out of all Scripture – how does one choose? Thinking about Logos 4 Software a very obvious verse would be 2 Timothy 2:16, “Be dilligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth” (NASB) or 2 Tim 3:16-17, “All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work”(NASB).
    But perhaps (at least for the purpose of this blog comment) right now an important few verses to me would have to be Philippians 2:14-16 where Paul commands, “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a ccrooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain” (NASB).
    Thank you for the wonderful, powerful tool in Logos 4 to help in the study and understanding of the word of God and for your commitment to being a primary source of great scholarship to aid in that study.

    Thanks for the giveaway. My favorite verse is 2 Cor. 10:5
    We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ,

  55. Phil. 1:21, “For me to live is Christ and to die is gain” has become my life verse over the last couple of years as i have seen friends, loved ones and family pass away. Not all of them have been born again and that has motivated me to live out the Gospel more and more.

  56. 9 And so, r​from the day we heard, s​we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that t​you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all u​spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as v​to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, w​fully pleasing to him, x​bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. 11 y​May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for z​all endurance and patience a​with joy, 12 b​giving thanks​4 to the Father, who has qualified you​5 to share in c​the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He d​has delivered us from e​the domain of darkness and transferred us to f​the kingdom of g​his beloved Son, 14 h​in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” Colossians 1:9-14 ESV

    my verse is Acts 13:41b “for I am going to do something in your days that you would never believe, even if someone had told you”
    the Lord has called me to teach the Bible – something I NEVER thought I would do and honestly, had no real desire to do as my depth of Bible knowledge wasn’t deep enough to drown in. My, has that been changing!

  59. Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.

  60. Let everything that has breath praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!

  61. Duane Jones says

    13 Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: aforgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead,
    14 I apress on toward the goal for the prize of the bupward call of God in cChrist Jesus.

  65. Psalm 36:9

  66. Rick Laing says

    My favorite Bible verse is: 1 Peter 3.18 For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;
    People say life is not fair, and it isn’t, but we don’t complain that Jesus, the Just, died for we, the unjust. That sure wasn’t fair but I thank God He did it.
    I am so excited to have the Logos program as it is a tremendous resource in my work preparation, and it is so great to deal with a business that is based on Christian ethics as well as really trying to help others in their spiritual work. I feel like I have obtained awesome value for the price paid. I am enjoying seeking and researching using this powerful program. Thank you so much.

  67. In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

  70. rob mieden says

    Mat 11:20 Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent.
    Mat 11:21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
    Mat 11:22 “Nevertheless I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.
    Now that is omniscience – not only what was and is, but what might have been if….! God is awesome!

    “Half” of the law and prophets is tied up in this verse. It is how we are known to the “world” as Christians. The other “half”, of course, being, “…The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment… There is none other commandment greater than these. ” (Mark 12:29–31, KJV)

  95. Charles Jemeyson says

    One of my favorites: Heb 12:22ff
    22 But ayou have come to Mount Zion and to the city of cthe living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to emyriads of angels,
    23 to the general assembly and achurch of the firstborn who bare enrolled in heaven, and to God, the Judge of all, and to the spirits of the righteous made perfect,
    24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than cthe blood of Abel.

  96. Carolyn Hampton says

    Micah 6:8
    He has told you, people, what is good;
    and what does the Lord require of you
    but to do justice, and to love kindness,
    and to walk humbly with your God?

  97. “For by grace you have been saved a through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” Ephesians 2:8-10
    By Grace Alone!

  98. shane vinson says

    I Love Logos 4, and I love to read the bible. I have a very old bible and could use a new one. I appreciate the bible giveaway very much, and hope I win one!

  99. Todd Reinschmidt says

    Thank you for doing this.
    My favorite Bible verse is: Psalm 27:1
    The Lord is my light and my salvation;
    whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the stronghold of my life;
    of whom shall I be afraid?
    God bless your ministry,

  100. Adam Setmeyer says

    I hope this doesn’t have to be exactly one verse (BTW: I copied this from the 1 Corinthians 1:22-25
    “22 For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, 24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and lthe wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.”

  101. 1Jn 4:11 Because it tells us of God’s great love and then commands us to do the same. It is a classic example of how doctrine informs practice, too.

  102. 1 Peter 2:9.

  103. Nic Mizeur says

    2 Timothy 4:7 – I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

  104. Armando Ordonez says

    Galatians 2:20
    I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

  105. Larry Raines says

    Psalm 92:1-3 (NIV)
    1 It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,
    2 to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,
    3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and the melody of the harp.

  106. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

  107. Rick Powell says

    “I do not set aside the grace of God; for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died in vain.”
    Galatians 2:21 (NKJV)

  108. Geoff Litke says

    Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. (I John 3:1)

  109. Charles Ellis says

    John 3:16 was used when I accepted Christ over 49 years ago.

  110. Renato Trevisan says

    This is my last chace here in Brazil to win a Bible. It’ll mean so much to me since we don’t have these kinds of Bibles here. God bless.

  111. Dr. Bob Stoddard says

    I’ve been using Logos since 1993 (version 1.6). Back then, it was amazing to have four Bibles open at once. That was great, and it keeps getting better and better. My favorite verse goes back to the very beginnings of my faith-journey when I was asked to paraphrase Mark 1:15 from the RSV. My current paraphrase goes something like this: “The time you’ve been waiting for is here! The kingdom of God is near! Turn around and go for it!”

  112. Deborah Mellberg says

    “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

  113. Deborah Mellberg says

    “Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3

  114. good to hear about the good result of your Bible give away. God bless.

  115. Joe Schneider says

    Jesus said to them, “Watch and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” Matthew 16:6 (ESV)

  116. George Barcus says

    It is hard to single out a specific verse, but the one that has helped me the most in my life and ministry is Psalm 19:14. In this verse there is great power. Think about it. What if the words of your mouth and the meditation of your heart were pleasing in God’s sight?

  117. John M Kight says

    28 And we know that for those who love God all things work together hfor good,7 for ithose who are called according to his purpose. 29 For those whom he jforeknew he also kpredestined lto be conformed to the image of his Son, in order that he might be mthe firstborn among many brothers. 30 And those whom he predestined he also called, and those whom he called he also njustified, and those whom he justified he also oglorified.
    God’s Everlasting Love
    31 What then shall we say to these things? pIf God is for us, who can be8 against us? 32 qHe who did not spare his own Son but rgave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? 33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? sIt is God who justifies. 34 tWho is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—uwho is at the right hand of God, vwho indeed is interceding for us.9 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? 36 As it is written,
    w“For your sake xwe are being killed all the day long;
    we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”
    37 No, in all these things we are more than yconquerors through zhim who loved us. 38 For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

  118. Psalm 90:1

  119. Ryan Vermilyea says

    Philippians 1:21
    “For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.”

  120. Rick VanBriggle says

    Ps. 46:10; Be still, and know that I am God.

  121. I purchased my first logos bible software about 13 or so years ago when it was on a floppy disc and only cost about 20 bucks. It may have even been the first version ever available?? Since then, I have purchased the latest greatest versions and updates every year. I lost significant eyesight and use of most of my hands and fingers from a rare disease, so using a handheld bible or books was next to impossible for me – That’s why I LOVE the Logos software. I can magnify the size of the font on all my books and bibles with one click of the mouse so it’s easier to read and I only need two fingers to type in the notes and prayer lists. Such a blessing!

  122. I have several verses that come mind, but to peg my favorite is Romans 5:8 – but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

  123. Romans 5:8 “but God shows his love for us in that mwhile we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” How precious is that simple phrase – “but God”
    Thanks for this give-away!

  124. Dan DeVilder says

    2 Timothy 2:11-13
    11 Here is a trustworthy saying:
    If we died with him,
    we will also live with him;
    12 if we endure,
    we will also reign with him.
    If we disown him,
    he will also disown us;
    13 if we are faithless,
    he will remain faithful,
    for he cannot disown himself.

  125. Mark Roberts says

    1 Corinthians 16:13: “act like a man”

  126. Oops! I forgot to leave my favorite Bible verse.
    16 “Are you still so dull?” Jesus asked them.
    –Matthew 15:16 (NIV)
    :D Just having a little fun with the Word…

  127. I have several verses that come mind, but to peg my favorite is Romans 5:8 – but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

  128. Kim Erickson says

    A verse that has been especially meaningful to me these past few years is Philippians 3:8: More than that, I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and count them but rubbish in order that I may gain Christ.

  129. “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth to show Himself strong in the behalf of him whose heart is perfect toward Him.” 2 Chronicles 16:9

  130. Brett Starr says

    Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
    I Thess 5:16-18

  131. David W. Bailey says

    I have never won a premium Bible; it would be really cool!

  132. 1 Peter 1:13
    13 Therefore, preparing your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
    The Holy Bible : English Standard Version. (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2001).

  133. Gordon Shearer says

    Many verses are great and I love many of them. Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. This verse tells us the options – death or life.

  134. Flynn Ayers says

    Right now my favorite verse is really all of Psalm 6. Comfort in the midst of bitter anguish.

  135. Gene Yancey says

    John 3:16 “For God so the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” This verse relates that everyone (the world) is qualified to receive salvation and that salvation is received by faith or belief. All of the work relating to salvation was been accomplished by our Lord Jesus Christ on the cross in accordance to God the Father’s plan because of His love. We enter God’s plan by faith alone in Christ alone. Faith in Christ excludes one from the lake of fire (not perish), and includes them in the new heavens and earth forever with God (have everlasting life).

  136. Jeremiah 15:16 – “Your words came, and I ate them, and they became the delight and desire of my heart, for I am called by your name, Lord God Almighty”

  137. James D. Jackson says

    Hebrews 4:15 (NIV) “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way just as we are – yet was without sin.”

  138. One of my favorite verses is Titus 3:5 (ESV)
    5 he saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the Holy Spirit,

  139. Ephesians 2:4-5
    But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved)

  140. Alan Parker says

    My favorite verse is Isa. 52:7

  141. Kevin Earls says

    A verse returned to again and again qualify it as a favorite is Matthew 11:28
    Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

  142. Vince Greer says

    It is such a hard question to name one favorite verse from a perfect book. However, my life verse that I attempt to model is Acts 20:24.
    24 “But I do not consider my life of any account as dear to myself, so that I may finish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the gospel of the grace of God.”

  143. Lloyd Wicker says

    I love John 17:1-26. Yeah, it’s more than just a verse, I know. We all know about the Lord’s Prayer…but really, that’s the disciples prayer, right? The Lord’s Prayer is found in this text–Jesus praying for himself, for his disciples, and for us (progressively bigger each movement). Unity! Oh that the church could get this part of our testimony right. I love this text!

  144. Nick Johnson says

    But the LORD is in his holy temple;
    let all the earth be silent before him.”
    Hab. 2:20

  145. Richard J. Shannon says

    My favorite verse is:
    Jeremiah 29:11
    For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

  146. Ruffin V.C. Freeman III says

    Nehemiah 8:8 is my favorite verse and sums up my preaching philosophy. I strive to give the sense of the passage so that people hearing me can understand what God is saying.
    8 They read from the book, from the Law of God, clearly,2 and they gave the sense, so that the people understood the reading.

  147. Richard Siegel says

    Always hopeful!
    Favorite bible verse: Matthew 7:11

  148. adriana krauss says

    My life verse since I became a “saved by grace Christian” is Proverbs 3:5-6 which says “Trust in the Lord will all your heart and lean not in your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.” It has been a blessing for to totally trust on this in all the circumstances I’ve experienced since then… I’m hopeful that this will help someone else today!

  149. David D Roberts says

    John 3:16 This is the crux of the whole bible.

  150. My favorite verse is John 10:10 “The devil comes to steal, kill, maim and destroy but Jesus came to give us life and that life abundantly.” It sums up the world situation today.

  151. John 20:31 – “but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.”

  152. Chris Smith says

    Ecclesiastes 12:13 When all has been heard, the conclusion of the matter is: fear God and keep His commands, because this ⌊is for⌋ all humanity.

  153. Joseph Grigoletti says

    Thank you for this Contest. Hope I win!

  154. I have many favorite Bible verses/passages but one means much to me.
    1Ti 1:12 And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who hath enabled me, for that he counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry; is the verse the Lord blessed to my heart when He called me to the ministry.

  155. Earl Ritter says

    My favorite verse is Jeremiah 29:13:
    You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.

  156. The book of Romans – so much to chew on and it’s all there.

  157. Timothy Kutner says

    1 Corinthians 1:21 God foreknew that it would be difficult for the world to accept Him, His Son, His Spirit and still He created us… Still He loved us … Still He died for us. What was done through Jesus Christ we cannot understand and so many-in the wisdom of the world-deny it, fight against it, outlaw it. Many consider what we preach to be foolishness, but through that foolishness each and every one of us is saved by grace through faith in Christ Jesus.

  158. Romans 8:28 “We know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”

  159. Gen 15:6 Abram believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness.

  160. Job 13:15 “Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: but I will maintain mine own ways before him.”

  161. Jim R. Keener says

    Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters;
    And you who have no money come, buy and eat.
    Come, buy wine and milk
    Without money and without cost.
    Isaiah 55:1

  162. I feel very much akin to the young pastor who so appreciates his NASB Large Print Bible and would also like to thank the person who so graciously returned his/her bible to you folks at Logos so that someone else might receive and have access to God’s word. My favorite vs.(s) are Isaiah 53:4&5; “Surely He has born our griefs and carried our sorrows;Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes are we healed.” NKJV
    Dave Adams

  163. Timothy McKeown says

    Eph 2:10 — Gives me security and purpose in this life!

  164. I love Logos 4. Thanks for giving those Bibles away. You have been a great blessing to many people.

  165. Phil 3:10 – That I may know Him. An ever increasing, personal, experiential, knowledge.

  166. 2 Timothy 1:7 “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.”
    I want fan into flame gift of God in power, love and self-discipline

  167. my fav verse is : In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth..

  168. Gary Mawson says

    Favourite verse at the moment is Eph 3:19 – to KNOW God’s love and be filled with his fullness – WOW!!!

  169. Jon Thomas says

    Romans 5:1-5.

  170. Gary Mawson says

    Favourite Verse at the moment is Eph 3:19 – to KNOW the love of God – and be filled with his fullness – WOW

  171. My favorite verse is Galatians 2:20. “I have been crucified with Christ, nevertheless, I live. Yet no I, but Christ lives in me and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave Himself for me.”

  172. Bill Hunter says

    “And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Phil 4:19

  173. Jonathan B. says

    Favorite Bible Verse: “preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.” 2 Timothy 4:2
    I have a passion for preaching! As a future preacher, I desire to live out this verse.

  174. Everytime I enter a contest I never seem to win. Maybe God will bless me with a cool new bible! Who knows.
    My favorite verse is this part in Daniel chapter 14. From Bel and the Dragon.
    24 “Look!” said the king to Daniel, “you cannot deny that this is a living god, so adore it.”
    25 But Daniel answered, “I adore the Lord, my God, for he is the living God.
    26 Give me permission, O king, and I will kill this dragon without sword or club.” “I give you permission,” the king said.
    27 Then Daniel took some pitch, fat, and hair; these he boiled together and made into cakes. He put them into the mouth of the dragon, and when the dragon ate them, he burst asunder. “This,” he said, “is what you worshiped.”
    I picture this in my head and laugh. Good stuff even if this part of Daniel was not written by him.

  175. My favorite verse is Psalm 16:11 “In your presence is fullness of Joy. At your right hand are pleasures forever.”

  176. Ezra 7:10 is an important verse for me in relation to Logos 4 software. It has been wonderful to speed up the study of God’s precious Word, and to go further than I have been able to in the past. So I study the Word more efficiently, learning to practice it in my own life and teaching others to live in light of what I have learned and am living out so they too can practice it.

  177. Jack Holbrook says

    My favorite verse is Matthew 5:13-16 which reminds me that God uses broken vessels in earthen jars such as myself to introduce others to Christ.

  178. If I had to pick a favourite, it would be Hosea 6:1-3. Yes, I know it’s three verses – you can pick your favourite of the three. :)

  179. “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

  180. Jim Purvis says

    Matt 22:37
    Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

  181. Kenneth R Rip says

    Rev. 3:21, Behold I stand at the door and knock. When I was in early primary school I often read parts of the book of Revelation during the sermon (which bored me to tears) in church. This verse convicted me of Christ’s call to me, and has ever since been my favorite.

  182. Scot Tomlinson says

    Where it begins, where it ends and all that is in between, Truth.
    John 14:6

  183. Robert Wilson says

    Perhaps my favorite verse is an unusual one.
    It’s the last half of Revelation 21:1 “And the sea was also gone.”
    Why this verse? It is due to a Bible study I’ve been doing for the last 14 years. Each week, a group of Christians (and sometimes Jews) study the scheduled weekly Torah portion for the week. When Christians study Jewsih commentary, it isn’t just Jewish.
    Anyway one of the side benefits of such a study is to evaluate and question each year if there are idols in our life. The Egyptian idols weren’t just bugs and cows and lice, etc. Thise were just the representation. The idols were wealth, health, virility, fertility, ease in childbirth, and so on. THe same things we place high value on today. If we are valueing these things above God, they are idols.
    Another side benefit regards an in depth study of the Tabernacle and Temples which are actually pictures/representaions of what we are to be like (houses of God) and how we should live. One of the most obscure symbols with regard to the Tabernacle & Temples is the “Sea”. The Tabernacle had a “Laver” or “Basin” the priests would wash in before offering and offering or going into the Holy Place (opposite directions by the way. This Laver was a powerful symbol of faith (a whole other study). Anyway with each Temple (1st, 2nd, 3rd [Ezekiel’s]) the size increases. in the Temples, it is no longer called a “Laver”, but is instead called a “Sea”. 1st – about the size of a Jacuzzi, 2nd – about the size of a small swimming pool, Ezekiel’s – a river to vast to cross, Revelation (of John) – the Throne is in the midst of an infinite Sea – the Elders “casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea”).
    What is this Laver/River/Sea? To me it represents at least two major ideas:
    1. It would take an infinite amount of cleansing to be able to come into the Presence of the Living God
    2. It represents a “separation” that exists between us and God and also between us and those who have gone on before us – the Great Cloud of Witnesses of Hebrews 11.
    In the context of these pictures/ideas I read the Revelation of John (who was taken to the same place Moses had been taken when he went up on Sinai … the Tabernacle/Dwelling Place of God …
    “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and the old earth had disappeared. And the sea was also gone. 2 And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven like a bride beautifully dressed for her husband.”
    One day, there will no longer be a Sea of Spearation between us and God. Although we may live In the Kingdom today, one day we will live in His Presence. And we will see those who have gone on before us! What a day that will be! And there was no longer any sea! Wow! I hope anyone reading this will be at least partly as blessed as I am proclaiming it.

    “It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man.”
    Psalm 118:8

  186. Chuck Jaeger says

    Romans 12:1-2 (What an awesome list of favorites!)

  187. I’ve been memorizing more scripture lately and Matt. 6:25-34 has meant a lot to me. God our provider–“Which one of you by worrying can add one more cubit to his stature.” God is in control!!

  188. Jn3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son and whhosoever believith in him shall not perish but have ever lastin life.

  189. Buell L. Sallee says

    My favorite verse is John 3:17.
    For God sent not his Son to condem the world, but that the world thru Him might be saved.

  190. Lisa A Runquist says

    Right now it has to be Philipians 2:14-15:
    “Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.”
    Especially in today’s world, there is such a need for this. I love the idea of being a light, offering the word of life to those who are hungry and thirsty.

  191. For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

    Malachi 3:6—“For I, the LORD, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed. (NASB95)

  193. O God, you are my God,
    earnestly I seek you;
    my soul thirsts for you,
    my body longs for you,
    in a dry and weary land
    where there is no water.
    The Holy Bible : New International Version, electronic ed. (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1996, c1984), Ps 63:1.
    I committed to memory Ps 63 when I went through a bone marrow transplant and recited it daily.

    `Shortest Chapter in Bible Psalms 117
    `Middle Chapter in Bible Psalms 118
    `Middle Verse Of Bible Psalms 118.9
    This text is found in a Psalm which is signalized by the fact that it contains the middle verse of the Bible, namely,
    “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man” (Ps. 118:9).
    `Longest Chapter Psalms 119

  195. Matthew 28:20

    Revelation 22:20 – ESV
    …Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

  196. Thanks for the contest Logos!
    My favorite:
    That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad.
    Ecclesiastes 12:13–14

  197. Pastor Don Andrix says

    God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them.
    I find this passage a reminder of God’s love for us and His desire that we continue to help serve people.

    My favorite verse is John 8.32: And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. Thanks be to God for the truth of His Son who indeed sets us free!

  199. Tom Allred says

    Titus 1:2: In hope of eternal life, which God who cannot lie promised before the world began.

  200. Thanks for the Bible Giveaway!!

  201. Thanks for the Bible Giveaway!!
    1Cor. 2.2 For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

  202. Currently one of my favorite verses is Revelation 20:11 “Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.” I love how it shows so clearly how great and awesome God truly is!

  203. Jim Lowther says

    My favorite verse is Philippians 1:6.
    And I am sure of this, that he who began ha good work in you iwill bring it to completion at jthe day of Jesus Christ.
    The Holy Bible : English Standard Version. (Wheaton: Standard Bible Society, 2001), Php 1:6.

  204. Michael Shelnutt says

    My favorite Bible verse is Romans 8:1, therefore there is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus.

  205. My favorite witnessing passages:
    “Now I make known to you, brethren, the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received, in which also you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast the word which I preached (the Gospel) to you, unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, that (the gospel is) Christ died for our sins caccording to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was araised on the third day baccording to the Scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:1–4).

  206. Onell McCarthy says

    My favorite scripture is John 3:16, I was so lost in sin, I was living a wretched life of fornication, hatred & theft. When i found out that there is God who loved me inspite of what I have done it is unfathomable to think that someone who had a prized possession would give it up just for me, just for my redemption it was amazing. The God of universe cared about me? This I believe is one of the most impactful scripture in my life.

  207. Jerry Laviña says

    This is one among my favourites Rev. 21:1-5.
    Thank you so much for this wonderful too. More power and God bless!

  208. Curtis E. Williams says

    Philippians 4:13
    I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

  209. Kris Brackett says

    2 Cor 5:21
    He made Him who knew no sin to be (b)sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

  210. Austin McCaskill says

    My favorite verse is 1 Chronicles 26:18: “At Parbar westward, four at the causeway, and two at Parbar.” No one really understands what “Parbar” is, though there are many guesses. The verse reminds me that I need humility when approaching God’s Word, that there is much to study and learn, and that I don’t have all the answers!
    Austin McCaskill, missionary, Albania

  211. Al Pihringer says

    2 Timothy 2:15 Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

  212. I desire nothing one arth(Psalm 73:24,25).

  213. Carmel McIlreavy says

    “One thing have I asked of the Lord, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord forever, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to inquire at his temple.” Psalm 27:4 (ESV)
    The cool thing is that God has answered this prayer with an unquenchable appetite to seek him.
    Thanks for the contest and to whoever offered their prize again.

  214. I’ve many favorite verses. This time i choose 1.Peter 5,7. One that i quote often.

  215. Randy White says

    Romans 1:16–I am not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ!

  216. Pastor Scott Block says

    The best verses in the Bible are John 1:1-5. There are no words more beautiful, more challenging, or more beautiful than these. “In the beginning was the Logos…”
    Peace and blessings

  217. Scott MacDonald says

    I just purchased Logos 4 and I enjoy it immensely! Thanks for all who make it possible! May God bless you in 2010!

  218. Roger Willis says

    My favorite bible most often seems to come from the passage I am pondering at the time. Today it is Mt. 11:19; here they called Jesus, among other things, “a friend of …sinners.” That’s me.

  219. George Den Oudsten says

    Bread is made for laughter,
    and wine gladdens life,
    and money answers everything.
    Ecclesiastes 10:19 (ESV)

  220. Paul Wulff says

    I have chosen as my life’s verse Galatians 2:20
    I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God , who lived me and gave himself up for me.” That had always been a humbling verse when I stop and think about it when I qoute it.
    Thanks for all you folks do.

  221. Matthew 16:13-15
    Jesus asked,
    v 13, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
    v 15, “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”

  222. mark thomas says

    My favorite verse is from Jeremiah 31:34 “And no longer shall each one teach his neighbor and each his brother, saying, Know the Lord, for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.”
    In a world of choices it is comforting to know that God chooses to never remember our sin, we can take comfort in that.

  223. The man God used to bring reform / revivial to the Jews after their return from exile:
    “For Ezra had set his heart to study the Law of the LORD, and to do it and to teach his statutes and rules in Israel.” (Ezra 7:10 ESV)

  224. Jason Siemens says

    My Favorite verse changes as I read, one day it’s one then I’m blessed by another, recently Romans 8:1 has truley blessed me. ” There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.” And I copied and pasted this right out of Logos verson 4. :-)

  225. My favorite is Romans 8:1…
    “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

  226. Ben Marshall says

    Romans 8:28, 29…And we know that God causes all things to work together for good, to those whom love him and are called according to His purpose. For those whom He foreknew He predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He might be the first born among many brethren.

  227. Ephesians 2
    “And you were dead in the trespasses and sins…among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, 7 so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.”

  228. So many choices, however, I keep coming back to 1 John 4:10.
    Blessings, Diane

  229. Jonathan Griffiths says

    Right now, I’d say Col. 1:15-19 because it’s all about Jesus.

  230. David Krueger says

    Logos is a great program. Like a few others who have commented, I’ve been using Logos since it came on floppy disks! Egad, that seems like eons ago. In the words of musician Fatboy Slim “You’ve come a long way baby!”
    I’m not sure, but I may have actually written one of the first reviews of the software when I was writting for Christian Computing Magazine. I extolled the program’s features then and have never stopped.
    Way to go guys!

  231. David Krueger says

    I forgot to leave my favorite verse: Eph. 3:20-21

  232. William Jones says

    My favorite Bible verse is Acts 2:21 “And everyone who calls
    on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
    This verse is really the resounding message from God to all of us. And is the message we have been commissioned to deliver to the World. No matter what we have done, no matter if we have lied, cheated, stole, murdered, or blasphemed, if we call on the name of Jesus Christ we can have eternal salvation and fellowship with our creator. That has to be the sweetest story ever told and best news mankind could ever hope to hear.
    This verse is the driving force of my ministry and is the reason I do what I do.

  233. Hebrews 4:15 (ESV)For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
    My life changed when I understood the greatness of this verse.
    The fact that this verse says sympathize is something no one should miss. Empathy means to understand, but sympathy goes a step further. It means of the same opinion, agrees with, shares the same feeling. My High Priest, Jesus, sympathizes with me.
    When something goes bad in your life you can go to your High Priest and he not only understands what you are going through he agrees with you. Teenager wanting a certain girlfriend and think it is unfair she doesn’t notice you? He understands and agrees with you. Need a better job or a promotion? He understands and agrees.
    This is why we can go boldy to his thrown and asking what we will knowing that he will give us his favor and his strength.

  234. Darren Hammermeister says

    And in that day there shall be a Root of Jesse, Who shall stand as a banner to the people; For the Gentiles shall seek Him, And His resting place shall be glorious. Isaiah 11:10

  235. Rustin Gramm says

    it is difficult to select one favorite verse, because sometimes you need many verses to make sense of the context. but, i would say 1 Peter 2:2 would be at the top of my list of favorite verses. “Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up to salvation…” this is a constant reminder that Jesus is our spiritual milk and that we are saved because of who He is: the Messiah who came to save His people!

  236. Chris Rackley says

    Galatians 6:2 “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”
    It’s a daily challenge to me and a reminder every morning of my mission for the day.

  237. Stephen McConnel says

    My favorite verse? Hard to say, but quite possibly Romans 8:1 as it reminds us of the completeness of our forgiveness through Jesus Christ.

  238. Acts 11:21 and the hand of the Lord was upon them, and a great many who believed came to know the Lord. this verse confirmed my call to missions!

  239. Susana Gonzales says

    I’m in the middle of a difficult situation. It’s very difficult. As I deal with the parties involved, I’m reminded by Colossians 3:14 as to how I am to approach them “And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony.” This is what follows all those things God wants us to put on; compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, bearing with one another, and forgiving each other. In the end, everything is summed up in love.

  240. John the Baptist speaking of Jesus:
    He must increase but I must decrease. (Jn. 3:30)
    This, to me, is the epitome of the Christian walk.

  241. Chris Browne says

    (forgive me if posting twice: not only can I not figure out how to ‘submit’ a post after ‘preview,’ but I also am not being allowed to log in!)
    “For the appeal we make does not come from error or impurity or with deceit, but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we declare it, not to please people but God, who examines our hearts.” [1 Thessalonians 2:3-4 (NET)]
    This is my default Scripture for ordaining/installing a pastor. It suits LOGOS, since we use their tools to avoid error (though it is the Holy Spirit who makes our declaration pure and God-pleasing through Christ).

  242. I could throw out the standard favorite verse… John 3:16, but that would be too easy. I LOVE THE VERY NEXT VERSE, John 3:17, “For God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”

  243. For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
    Philippians 1:21

  244. Cobus Klopper says

    “ ‘I know your works. Behold, I have set before you aan open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
    The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001. Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

  245. Rolf Seattle says

    ESV | 2 Co 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.

  246. Pete Krause says

    Ephesians 3:20-21 (NASB)
    20 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,
    21 to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.

  247. 1 Cor 15.58
    Therefore, my beloved bretheren, be steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, for you know that your labor is not in vain, in the Lord.

  248. 2 Corinthians 2:10-11
    Now whom you forgiven anything, I also forgive. For if indeed I have forgiven anything, I have forgiven that one for your sakes in the presence of Christ, lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.

  249. Leonard Sandwick says

    John 17:3 “This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.
    New American Standard Bible : 1995 update. 1995. LaHabra, CA: The Lockman Foundation.

  250. Darin Allen says

    What a cool idea!
    I would have to say Jeremiah 20:9, “If I say, ‘I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,”there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot.'”
    Such an awesome verse about faithfully speaking the truth of God!

  251. John Edwards says

    My favorite Bible verse is John 3:16. “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life” (ESV).

  252. SATLighthouse says

    Blessed is the individual who returned the Bible for someone else to win on January 18, 2010.
    I am so blessed to be able to have Logos 4 on my computer – I am using the Leader’s Library and plan to upgrade each year as I pay off each version. $30 per month is worth the Bible Study, mentoring, and the knowledge I will receive as I build my collection.
    I will be starting on my MDiv in the fall – I’ll be one step ahead with Logos 4!
    Blessings one and all!

  253. Richard L. Montgmery says

    Romans 1:17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

  254. Christian K. Poulsen says

    Ephesians 1:3-14.
    As a discipler, a chaplain- One committed to developing the fruitfulness, productivity, and effectiveness of men-
    Before God I have set forth the following: Principles ->God’s/my Visions and Dreams as directed by the Holy Spirit->my mission statements upon which my life and ministry are based.
    The Compass, The Rainbow, the Rose!
    My ABCISV Mission Statement-
    A — Accept great things from God
    “Accept great things from God, then He will attain great things through you, for the secret of all attainment in the spiritual life is the obtainment of the Holy Spirit in His fullness; hence the measure of the latter always gages the advance of the former.” (F. E. Marsh –Discipler’s Manual–Introduction) The spirit in the fullness of His power is always the adjustment for every fault, and the advancement in every grace.
    B. — Bless and be a blessing (Ephesians 1:3).
    This is the “What the Hell do I have to loose club!”
    God has placed me here to spread His blessings to the nations! See F. E. Marsh –Major Bible Truths- 204 two page 220, Also Cooper — get out of your own way — page 194, page 186 to 188! And Do It! Let’s Get Off Our Buts! Page 105, 107!
    Will you look back with regret? Or look forward with expectation?
    C. — Live Life In Crescendo! “This is the true joy in life, of being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one, of being a force of nature instead of a feverish, elfish little clod of ailments, and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die for the harder I work the more I live! I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got to hold up for the moment. I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations. I personally don’t believe in retiring! I believe in living my life in crescendo that we should continue to make significant contributions in whole new ways all the way through our lives.”
    Attributed to George Bernard Shaw — Covey/Merrill
    I. — I can!
    a. Icon — I live as the icon of the risen Christ!
    b. I can! –Kaizen — constant and never-ending improvement!
    c. And Incident Life of completeness, a life which fills up all whom it touches!
    L. — Lead!
    a. Lead, inspire, breathe life into those whom God privleges me to!
    b. Live life as a 10! Integral with the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit!
    c. Live, Love, Leave a legacy.
    S. — seek mutual blessing and mutual benefit!
    Choose only win-win outcomes.
    Seek mutual benefit in all your interaction and relationships. Remember that one person’s success is not achieved at the expense or exclusion of the successes of others. Maintain and “abundance mentality”, the mindset that there is plenty of success for everyone.” Franklin Covey.
    V. — Vision! Receive God’s vision through the Holy Spirit and implement it!
    Logos 4 and the previous Libronix editions have been used powerfully in the ministries God has given me! You are a blessing!
    As a side note, I would recommend that Logos consider publishing electronic versions of F.E. Marsh’s books- They are very powerful!

  255. Paul Barker says

    James 1:27

  256. Paul Burgess says

    2 Timothy 3 – 16 All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, 17 that ethe man of God2 may be competent, fequipped gfor every good work.
    The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001. Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

  257. Pytrice Williams says

    Joshua 1:8-9
    These are my favorite verses. I couldn’t pick one without the other, they just naturally flow together. They are a reminder of what I must do every day and the result of my obedience. Logos helps me to fulfill this responsibility. Thanks for all you do.

  258. David Siauw says

    Heb 4:15 “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet was without sin.”
    I have few favorite verses, but this is one that has encouraged me often, especially as I live my life trusting that He keeps on interceding for me constantly.

  259. Peter Cook says

    Micah 6:8 is one of my personal favorites as it reminds me of what the Lord requires of me on a daily basis!

  260. Mack Harrell says

    My favorite verse:
    It’s a tossup between
    Isaiah 8:20 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] , “To the teaching and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because they have no dawn.”
    Isaiah 26:3 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] ,4 [Open in Logos Bible Software (if available)] “You will keep him in perfect peace (Heb.: ‘shalom shalom’) whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.
    Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock.”

  261. Psalm 119:105
    “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.”

  262. Jeremiah Morris says

    comment…. :)

  263. Mike Lester says

    My favorite (life) verse is Galatians 6:9,
    “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”

  264. Brandon Crowe says

    Rom 12:2
    “Do not conform to the world, but be transformed by the renewal of you mind. So that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good, holy,and perfect.

  265. Gives me confidence in God’s everlasting love.
    Ephesian 3:14-21
    14 For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, 15 from whom wevery family3 in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that according to xthe riches of his glory yhe may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit zin your inner being, 17 aso that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being brooted and cgrounded in love, 18 may have strength to dcomprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and eheight and depth, 19 and to know the love of Christ fthat surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all hthe fullness of God.
    20 iNow to jhim who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, kaccording to the power at work within us, 21 lto him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
    The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001. Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

  266. Romans 6:1-2 “What shall we say then? Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can nwe who died to sin still live in it?”

  267. Lionel B. Dyck says

    For me it is Deuteronomy 6:4-6 which reads in the ESV
    “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart.”
    I grew up hearing it and they have remained on my heart and in my thoughts since.

  268. Cobus Klopper says

    There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus
    The Holy Bible : English standard version. 2001. Wheaton: Standard Bible Society.

  269. A long time favorite verse for me is Psalm 96:10a. “Say among the nations ‘The Lord reigns.'” It’s a present statement — the Lord is King NOW. And we are to proclaim that among all the peoples of the world. My wife and I began that process in India, first with Operation Mobilization and then with Interserve. We continue with Interserve USA now helping others declare that message to the peoples of the world now coming into the USA.

  270. William Flanagan says

    Proverbs 3:5-6
    Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.



  272. John 15:5 Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. NLT

  273. My favorite verse is by Jesus in John 3:3: “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he *cannot see* the kingdom of God.”
    About seven years ago, using Logos, I discovered that the word “see” in John 3:3 is the Greek word “horao,” and in addition to physical “sight,” it also means: “To perceive with the mind; to understand.” In addition to “entering [seeing] the Kingdom of God,” Christ is also telling Nichodemus that prior new birth is necessary to perceive; to truly understand, the Kingdom of God in a saving way.
    In other words, apart from prior new birth, lost man is in the Spiritual condition Paul noted in 1st. Corinthians 2:14: “The man without the Spirit [unregenerate] does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them because they are Spiritually discerned.”
    This “discovery” made a vast difference (and improvement) in my evangelistic presentation. I had been trained (by three different methods) essentially to try and work the conversation around to get the prospect to “repeat the sinner’s prayer,” and then tell him he was “saved.”
    Now, using the Law (Galatians 3:24 NASB), I first bring the person to understand the gravity of his sinfulness before a Holy God, and ONLY if he responds in a positive way do I proceed with telling him about the Grace of God offered in Christ. If the Holy Spirit is at work in that person, at that moment, he will express a *true* profession of faith. If not, I no longer beat myself up thinking perhaps MY presentation was not “convincing” enough (and I do leave them with a tract).
    “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he *cannot see* the kingdom of God.”

  274. Don Goddard says

    John 10:34 Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, ‘I have said you are gods?'”

  275. Mike Nemmers says

    II Cor. 5:17 has been my life verse ever since I was saved back in 1972. “Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things are passed away, behold, all things have become new.”

  276. Jeremiah 3:9-15
    “Because she took her whoredom lightly, she polluted the land, committing adultery with stone and tree. Yet for all this her treacherous sister Judah did not return to me with her whole heart, but in pretense, declares Jehovah.”
    And Jehovah said to me, “Faithless Israel has shown herself more righteous that treacherous Judah. Go, and proclaim these words toward the north, and say,
    Return, faithless Israel,
    declares Jehovah.
    I will not look on you in anger, for I am merciful,
    declares Jehovah.
    I will not be angry forever.
    Only acknowledge your guilt, that you rebelled against Jehovah your God adn scattered your favors among foreigners under every green tree, and that you have not obeyed my voice,
    declares Jehovah.
    Return, O faithless children,
    declares Jehovah;
    for I am your master; I will take you, one from a city and two from a family, and I will bring you to Zion.
    And I will give you shepherds after my own heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.”
    This passage is deeply personal, and my Jehovah God has been faithful to forgive and to give me godly, spiritually sound leaders and pastors who have guided my knowledge and understanding. I am now pursuing my own education in Old Testament studies and hope to be an honorable and worthy servant of the Word as well.

  277. Joshua Daugereau says

    The LORD has established his throne in the heavens,
    and his kingdom rules over all. Psalm 103:19
    What a comfort to know that the Lord rules! What peace especially in times as this when Haiti is suffering and we don’t understand the “why”. IT is a comfort to know that the Lord reigns and rules!

  278. Melinda Rudd says

    Colossians 3:16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom, and as you sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.
    We need nothing more than the word of God!!

  279. This was the first verse impressed upon me by the Holy Spirit when I struggled to be rededicated to God:
    This is the day that the LORD has made;
    let us rejoice and be glad in it. Ps 118:24

  280. Matthew Winslow says

    “Therefore let us confidently approach the throne of grace to receive mercy and find grace whenever we need help” Heb 4:16

  281. 2 Corinthinas 5:20 — Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making His plea through us. We plead with you on Christ’s behalf, “Be reconciled to God!” — NET Bible
    This verse reminds me that everything I do reflects on Christ, both good and bad. I think is was Ghandi who said he liked Christ but not Christians. Am I doing things that may get in the way of others coming to Christ?
    Everything I do should have the aim of bringing others to Christ, sharing the Gospel that they may be at peace with God and enjoy His fellowship.
    This is the mission of the church.

  282. Frank Harford says

    These two verses resonate together for me.
    Ephesians 3:20
    Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us,
    1 Timothy 1:14
    And the grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.

  283. Doug Andre says

    My life verse is Lamentations 3:24 which states; “The Lord is my portion, says my soul, therefore I will hope in Him.” (ESV)

  284. Philippians 2:3-4 ESV
    Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves.
    4 Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.

  285. Revelation 4:11 (NASB95)
    11 “Worthy are You, our Lord and our God, to receive glory and honor and power; for You created all things, and because of Your will they existed, and were created.”
    Indeed there are many verses that could be chosen, but this verse causes me to stop and consider the majesty of the Lord. After all of these years of longing to be closer to Him, one day I will be in His majestic presense in a new and very dramatic way.

  286. Alejandro Gonzalez says

    I have so many favorite passages. One that is very important to me is Luke 6:27-31. When I started the Christian walk, I had trouble dealing with people who anger me or takes advantage of me, especially at my job. I always desired revenge and I was vindictive. This passage helped me overcome this sin, and now I respond to these folks in Love and the Lord helps touch the heart of those who treat me wrong. I gained so many more friendships and my life has become better due to the Lord.
    Luke 6:27 (ESV)
    27 “But I say to you who hear, Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,

  287. Frank Pettrone says

    I have many favorite verses; but my favorite for this question is why I study the sacred scriptures and why I purchase the logos software and related library books. It is Jn 20:31 “but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in his name.”

  288. Edwin Combs says

    John 17:20–26 (ESV)
    20 “I do not ask for these only, but also for those who will believe in me through their word”

  289. Randy Cunningham says

    John 3-16…I’m paraphrasing, God loved you and me so much He gave Himself so we could be with Him in paradise.

  290. My 12 Sunday School children and I are beginning to study how Noah condemned the world when he built the ark, so one of my favorite verses to study with them will be Heb. 11:1. It is a tricky one to translate, but all the better to teach the children about faith and Greek word study.

  291. James DAlessandro says

    Fav verse – Hebrews 4:12

  292. Romans 12:12 Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer
    We often forget how important prayer is.

  293. Romans 12:2
    2Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

  294. Moises Rivera says

    Jeremiah 20:9 – But if I say, “I will not mention him or speak any more in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.

  295. Barry Smith says

    One last chance. Here we go!

  296. Marvin Pearcy says

    Logos4 is wonderful. It makes my study time more enjoyable since there are so many resources at my disposal. My favorite Bible verse: Isaiah 40:31 “But those who wait on the LORD Shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint.”

  297. Donna Christianson says

    Proverbs 18:10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower;
    the righteous man runs into it and is safe. He Is my strong tower, my refuge, and my all sufficient Lord.

    John 17:3
    And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

  300. Ingemar Woods says

    To me one of the most important and perhaps quoted passages is John 3:16. This says so much about God’s love for people. Just as He continued to bless Israel during the Old Testament period even when she fell into apostasy and continued to not honor the covenants. He continues to bless people!

  301. Bruce Mills says

    2 Cor. 5:21
    Apart from God accepting the substitutionary sacrifice of His Son for my sins, I would be eternally lost in hell. All praise and thanks to Him!

  302. Mark Stevenson says

    Jesus declares, (Jn 5:30) “I can do nothing on my own. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is just, because I seek not my own will but the will of him who sent me.
    Jesus could do nothing on His own. His oneness with the Father allowed the Father to work through His Son. Our oneness with Jesus will allow Him to work through us, because apart from him(Jesus) we can do nothing.(Jn 15:5)

  303. Congratulations Billy, you’re our randomly selected winner!

    If someone forces you to go one mile, go with him two miles” Mat[5:41]
    I think that Logos 4 has gone at least 2 miles further down the road.
    Thanks for a great piece of ever improving software. Someday try to to get the Phillips translation into the mix.

  305. Jonathan Lim says

    Proverbs 1:23
    Turn at my rebuke;
    Surely ​​I will pour out my spirit on you;
    I will make my words known to you.

    One more chance to win! :)

  307. ashley smith says

    proverbs 3:5&6 because I believe this so answer a lot of qestions in life. It really means a lot to me because we can beelieve Gods Word. It is truth and therefore gives hope.

  308. David Teter says

    One verse that is a favorite? That’s a tall order! Far too many to have one favorite, I think. Prov 11:30 comes pretty close though…
    “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he who wins souls is wise.”
    Thanks for a great product, LOGOS!!

  309. The one I love is Gal 2:20. Are you guys going to make a statistics for this?

  310. Richard J. Shannon says

    Trying to win again. :)

  311. I’d love to win a Bible. I could really use it as a church planter!

  312. 1 Corinthians 1:23-24 but we preach Christ crucified, to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness, but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.
    For the preachers out there: I urge you to feel the weight of this verse. Not human wisdom, but CHRIST CRUCIFIED! Preach it with passion!

  313. Walter Carvalho says

    Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

  314. Pastor Rory Lennox says

    Thy word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee. Ps 119:11
    As I have grown older I have come to appreciate how impossible it is to do this hiding of His Word. I have also come to see that when it is properly hidden it does give advance warning against the sins I otherwise would so easily commit. As a boy I would say it with a measure of pride. As an adult I say it because I know it is true and I pray my Lord will make it true in me. To Him be the honour and the glory, Amen.

  315. Patty Marshall says

    I’d have to say that my favorite verse starts with John 14:1 and nine years ago as I was reading this on my birthday…I was drawn to every word and meaning like never before. By time I got to verse 15 it was clear the Holy Spirit made his presence known by emphasizing each word with excitement and meaning “that the world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him for he lives with you and will be in you.” He was talking to me that I know him and that he is in me. And then I closed my eyes and savored the moment with the Holy Spirit. It was awesome!!

    • How thrilling Patty…. Praise His wonderful name Immanuel (Hebrew: עמנואל, God is with us)
      Love in the Lord Jesus Mike

  316. Philippians has walked through the seasons of my life.
    In 1989, Phi 1.21 “For to me is Christ, to die is gain” launched me into my journey of studying the Bible!
    In 1996 July, with Phi 4.13 “I can do all things through Him who strengthes me” I went into full-time youth work. Knowing my full sufficiency lies not in what I have or have not but rather in God alone. In May 2006, Phi. 2.17 “Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upn the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all” became my ministry theme verse. With this I wrote in my graduation magazine as my ministry desire & prayer, to be “FULLY FILLED in Spirit & Word; COMPLETELY POURED OUT for God.”

    Indeed, God’s Word fully satisfy all the questions of my lives.

  317. Kathryn Young says

    Too many favorites – this is just one: In all things give thanks.

  318. Psalm 50:7-15

    King James Version (KJV)

    “7 Hear, O my people, and I will speak; O Israel, and I will testify against thee: I am God, even thy God.

    8 I will not reprove thee for thy sacrifices or thy burnt offerings, to have been continually before me.

    9 I will take no bullock out of thy house, nor he goats out of thy folds.

    10 For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.

    11 I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine.

    12 If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.

    13 Will I eat the flesh of bulls, or drink the blood of goats?

    14 Offer unto God thanksgiving; and pay thy vows unto the most High:

    15 And call upon me in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me.”
