i am just wondering, :-) if some of you dear brothers and sisters would help me. I am trying to put together a list of verses or shorter passages that can be useful when leading a soul to Christ. I will try and memorize some of them and i have found some very good ones already.
But what i would like is more verses :-) on every topic so when speaking to someone i can use scriptures more effectively and talk more about what they are saying in applying that to what the bible says. And show them what God has said about it.
first we must show them they are sinners so verses that cover that area, and verses about redemption, and justification and judgment all other things,
So if you have some favorite verses or some verses you consider to be good in showing people who God is and what he has done for them, and showing them what state they are and what will happened and so on...please share.
some examples of what i meen:
