52 Bible Verses for a Joy Filled Year – Week 38

Good Sunday morning to you. I hope you are well and your day is filled with joy.

Interesting Fact

My English Standard Version (ESV) indicates Paul took this line from a hymn to the god Zeus by Epimenides of Crete. Only Paul meant “Him” is Jesus. He was using a phrase familiar to the Greeks.

Just thought you would find that interesting.

Have a wonderful week and remember to think about this verse and pray God will use it in your life this week.
