Caller:  Well I was talking the other day with a Christian friend of mine about what she thought the most important verse in the Bible was.

Pastor Doug:  Yes.

Caller:  And I was wondering if you had a view on that?  I thought it was, ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven and all these things shall be added unto you.’  I was just wondering if you had a view on that.

Pastor Doug:  Well obviously, since there are thousands of verses in the Bible and you ask 10 people, you’ll get 11 answers.  Martin Luther felt it was John 3:16.  He believed that encapsulated the Gospel.

There are a lot of people who believe that it’s one of many verses in Romans, ‘The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is everlasting life.’

Some of my favorite verses are in the Old Testament, like where it says in Solomon’s prayer, ‘If my people that are called by My Name, would humble themselves and pray and turn from their wicked ways and seek My Face, then I will hear their prayer and forgive their sin and heal their land.’  Now that’s a wonderful verse.

So, you know I’ve got a number of favorites.  One of my favorites is Jeremiah 29:13.  Whenever I sign one of my books, I write my name, and then I write Jeremiah 29:13.  You know what that one is Matthew?

Caller:  No I don’t.

Pastor Doug:  ‘You will search for Me and you’ll find Me, when you search for Me with all of your heart.’

Caller:  That’s similar to ‘Seek ye first the Kingdom of Heaven.’

Pastor Doug:  Exactly.

Co-Host:  Right.

Pastor Doug:  Make it a priority.

Caller:  Yeah.

Pastor Doug:  But that’s right.  I think you’re right on target.  Well we need to give some of our other callers a chance – but we appreciate that perspective, to keep our priorities on knowing Christ.

Caller:  Ok God bless.

Pastor Doug:  Thank you so much.
