Greg Allen, our Senior Product Liability lawyer, provided some Bible verses that are important to him. The background for Greg’s selection of these verses is most interesting. One of his clients miraculously survived a devastating automobile crash in which the man’s car rolled over numerous times. When the car was rolling over, the roof of the vehicle pinched and bent the client’s Bible and held it open. When the vehicle stopped, it was sitting on its wheels. The Bible was hanging in one of the back side windows open to the Book of John, Chapter 20, where Jesus was talking to Thomas.
Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered, and said unto Him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen Me, thou has believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through His name. John 20:27-31
Kay Cox, who works as a Legal Secretary in our Personal Injury/Products Liability Section, gave two verses this month. Kay says the first is the “go to” verse for her. When she starts to question herself, thinking she can’t do a certain thing, or deal with a certain matter in life or may just be down and out from all the stresses in life, Kay says this verse out loud and it really does give her strength. She says that God “has my back” in every situation and that she should have no fear!
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13
Kay’s second verse is also important to her. She says she knows Jesus suffered and endured so much so that we might live eternally. This verse is especially important to Kay because she knows God has healing powers and she knows he can perform miracles.
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 we are healed. Isaiah 53.5
Chris Glover, a lawyer in our Personal Injury and Product Liability Section, also furnished two verses for this issue. Chris says the consequence of sin impacts sinners at present, and, if we are never born again, for eternity. Chris says that Jesus can set us free from sin and he says that freedom sure does feel good.
Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, everyone who sins is a slave to sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.” John 8:34-36
Chris says his favorite verse in the Bible is found in Ephesians. He says that Paul explains things to him about living a worthy life in a manner that he can understand.
As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Ephesians 4:1
Rhon Jones, who heads up our firm’s Toxic Torts Section, furnished three verses this month. He says his life verse is found in Romans. Rhon says this verse is the foundation of his existence.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28
Rhon furnished another verse, saying that Hebrews 12:1-2 is a verse that he never grows tired of reading.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Hebrews 12:1-2
Rhon says he also loves James 1:22. While reading God’s word is important, Rhon says we must do and not just hear. I totally agree with him and it’s a definite requirement.
Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. James 1:22
