Billy Irvin, Director of Ministry Relations, Faith Radio 89.1FM, sent in his favorite verse for this issue. He says Isaiah 53:5 is a verse that means so very much to him and his entire group. Billy says that is because Faith Radio is focused on the cross and how our savior died for us. Jesus died for us, not because of anything we have done, but because He loves us so much.
But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5
Stephanie Monplaisir, a lawyer in our firm’s Personal Injury & Products Liability Section, furnished two timely verses for this issue. Stephanie says she grew up hearing the Easter story, but this year, she says she finally “got” what it really means for believers. Before Jesus’s resurrection, believers lacked two things: direct access to God and hope in Life after Death. Stephanie pointed out that as soon as Jesus took his last breath, the veil was torn that divided people from God. When Jesus came back on the third day, that was proof that this life is not the end for believers.
And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs broke open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. They came out of the tombs after Jesus’ resurrection and went into the holy city and appeared to many people. Matthew 27: 50-53
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God. 2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Janet Glaze, an accounting clerk in our Toxic Torts Section, says selecting favorite verses has always been a hard thing for her to do. She says that’s because as she grows in her faith, she finds new ways to apply even the smallest of words that are in the Bible in her life. Janet’s favorite Bible verse since her childhood have been. Hebrews 13:8.
Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Hebrews 13:8
Kim Owen, a Legal Assistant in our Mass Torts Section, also furnished a verse for this month, which told the Parable of the Lost Sheep.
Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent. Luke 15:1-7
