Cole Portis, who heads up our firm’s Personal Injury & Products Lability Section, furnished a verse for this issue. He had this to say:
I stand in awe of God’s grace. He is a God who sent His son, Jesus, to die for me, a sinner. I can imagine someone sacrificing something precious to them for someone who is righteous and good, but to send Jesus to die for someone like me is beyond my comprehension. But, He didn’t just save me, He adopted me and made me His child. He is a Father to whom I cry, “Abba, Father!” He listens to me, cares for me, sanctifies me and one day will glorify me. Amazingly, through the adoption process He also confirms to me that I am one of His heirs. The One who owns everything calls me a fellow heir with Christ. All of this is undeserved. I am grateful that He is my Father.
There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, if indeed we suffer with Him, that we may also be glorified together.
Romans 8:1-4; 16-17
Kristi Smith, a legal assistant in our firm’s Mass Torts Section, sent in the following verses:
For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord, Plans to prosper you and not harm you plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
If God is for us, who then can be against us? Romans 8:31
Kristi says that these 2 verses makes it easier “to live out Joshua 1:9- Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or discouraged for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Melissa Prickett, a lawyer who serves as our Section Head Administrator in the Toxic Torts Section, supplied the following verses. These are certainly timely for the weeks leading up to Christmas.
I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11
She will bear a son, and you call his name Jesus for he will save his people from their sin. Matthew 1:21
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, goodwill towards men. Luke 2:13-14
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6.
I have come into the world as light so that no one who believes in me need remain in the dark. John 12:46
