Weekly Verse – No One’s Left Out

Negativity.  It’s everywhere.  If I’m not careful I can even let it slip into my own mind.  I’m not gonna lie… this week negativity has really tried to get in my head.

In an effort to keep the negativity at bay, I went looking for positive Bible verses.  Figured it would do me some good and perhaps I could share one to lift someone else up too.

I kept coming across Romans 10:13 (NLT). To me it is a verse full of positivity.

For “Everyone who calls on the name of the LORD will be saved.”

What I love about this verse and what I find so positive about it is how inclusionary it is.  There are no qualifiers.  It simply says, “Everyone who calls on the Name of the LORD will be saved”.

Everyone. Period. End of story.

It doesn’t single out education, gender, or race.  It doesn’t matter how much money you have or what your job is.  Perfection isn’t required. The only thing that matters is that you call on Jesus and you will be saved.

That… is a very positive (and powerful) message!

  1. This post really hit home with me today. Mainly because my cousin Matt and I were just talking about this very topic last night. Having just recently reconnected with many of my family members after joining FB this past wknd. Matt and I hadn’t seen or spoken to each other in well over 30 years. 3 decades is a LOOONG time to go without talking to your family, but it wasn’t because I didn’t want to, it’s because I didn’t know where to look. I knew he was in the Gulf war years ago, and that he had dealt with some severe PTSD when he got back. But aside from that, that’s all I knew. The past few nights him and I have spent an hour or more each night via FB chat, catching up and filling in what’s been going on with each others lives. Turns out we’re a lot similar than we realized. Which was interesting, as him and I were about the same age growing up and we both had older and younger siblings. Both of us mentioned that we do not like negativity in our lives and because of that, it’s had an impact on our relationship with our Mothers. Don’t get me wrong, we both love our Mothers to death. But because our Mothers never got along and their siblings were always fighting, that affected us in that (aside from a few family reunions when we were very young), we never grew up really knowing each other, aside from the occasional comment our Moms would mention over the years.
    I felt compelled to talk about it here because we discussed that we didn’t like to be around people who were negative and I explained to him that was one of the reasons I left Florida, I had grown tired of all the negativity.
    It’s been great reconnecting with my aunts, cousins, nieces, nephew and step brother these past few days.
    I do my best to keep negativity out of my life, but it’s a constant battle as it’s all around us. I’ve found the best way to do this is to surround yourself with positive uplifting people. People who support and encourage to be a better person and to pass that positivity on to others.
    Thank you Tony for being such a positive friend and for always being so supportive in my endeavors. It means so much!
    Have a great evening!
    Chris 🙂
