Romans 12:9-10 The Message, YouVersion Daily Verse

"We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard about your faith in Christ Jesus and your love for all the saints, springing from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you already heard about in the word of truth, the good news that has come to you."

Romans 12:9-10 The Message, YouVersion Daily Verse

Post by angelaglass » Fri Sep 09, 2016 11:30 pm

"Love from the center of who you are; don't fake it. Run for dear life from evil; hold on for dear life to good. Be good friends who love deeply; practice playing second fiddle."
When I found I wanted to read the scriptures for myself, I had a hard time reading The New World Translation. It seemed I already knew what everything meant in a way that was distracting me from the story. That's how I found "The Message". The Message translation isn't good for studying the scriptures as it's not a literal translation. However, it was more like sitting down to read a novel given to us from God.

I find these days that I love getting the daily text from the YouVersion app on my iPhone and iPad, and I use The Message version. It replaces the daily text of the Watchtower, and thus I appreciate that it's a paraphrase of scripture.

I've also used their read the bible in 90 days plan several years in a row.

Let me know if you want to be 'friends' on YouVersion! I thought I'd share the verse of the day with all the new friends I hope to meet here! :)
