Bible Verses for Celebrating Life

People have many questions concerning life. What are the origins of life? How I can have a new life? What are priorities for life?

These Bible verses about life will help you sort through those questions and hopefully answer some of your questions.

When we were born, we were not given an instruction manual for life. Our parents were not given one either. We all do our best to figure out the questions of life.

However, the Bible is a book given to us by God to help us discover that blueprint for life. I say it helps us discover because the Bible is not God, it is His book.

His purposes for our life is to have a relationship with Him and even though the Bible is God’s love letter to us, it is just the letter. He wants our relationship to be with Him personally.

So it is my heart and prayer that these verses about life will spring you forward in your search and journey for a more vibrant and real relationship with the Creator of the universe and His son Jesus Christ.

Final Thoughts About Life

As you can see, the Bible teaches that life originates from God and does so in the mother’s womb. He created each and every one of us and we are fearfully and wonderfully made. To denigrate and lessen the sanctity of life in the womb causes us to do the same to life outside the womb.

Because every life is precious in the sight of God, including the lives of the defenseless and innocent lives that each mother carries inside of her, abortion should always be something that a Christian stands against and speaks out against in civil ways. We should be the ones who speak for the little ones.

Since the Bible clearly teaches that any man, woman, boy or girl can have eternal life and that God specifically provided a way for us to enter into that eternal life, I pray that every person that reads these verses about life will experience that eternal life and start a personal relationship with Jesus.

No matter what you have done, including in your ignorance possibly ending the life of a newborn infant, you can still have a new life in Jesus. He will give you a fresh start. Nothing anyone has done is beyond His ability to let old things pass away and have all things become new.

Finally, in these scriptures about life, we see that the priorities in life for a believer in Jesus are different than the priorities of life in the world.

We are to live a different kind of lifestyle. One that is focused on our relationship with our Savior and one that reaches out to hurting people. We are called to be holy people. Holy means that we are “set apart”.

Now, this does not mean to act weird or dress funny, but it means to be set apart to God for His purposes. Acting weird and dressing funny is just another side of the coin of bringing attention to yourself. You are called to bring attention to God.

So ask yourself and go and ask God how am I bringing positive attention to Jesus and showing the world He is real and that they can have new life in Him?
