From the Editors | Moody Radio Hosts Share Favorite Scripture Passages

  • July 2018 Issue
From the Editors

Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path.”—Psalm 119:105

Students of Scripture know that God speaks to us through His Word to direct our lives and draw us closer to Him. We invited Moody Radio hosts to share a Bible passage and why it holds special meaning for them.

Kurt Goff, host of Kurt Goff Live

Who is among you that fears the Lord that obeys the voice of His servant, that walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God.”—Isaiah 50:10, NASB

This verse has come to my rescue so many times. We are followers of Jesus, seeking to be obedient and investing in our relationship with Him. That’s always the right thing to do when we’re not sure what to do next. Grab your Bible, hit your knees, and remember who Jesus is. The light will come as you wait on Him. Avoid the temptation to come up with your own answers, to light up your own darkness. God has a plan. You may be in the dark, but He’s not!

Chris Fabry, host of Chris Fabry Live

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”—Colossians 3:23–24

Perhaps it was my father’s work ethic that made me want to throw myself into anything I did, but these verses have always comforted me about whatever I’m doing. If I know that I’m trying to please Him and not just my earthly bosses or leaders, I can do everything wholeheartedly and with passion. This frees me to simply jump into any assignment with tenacity and abandon. I don’t care if you’re a bricklayer, a ditch digger, carpenter, or wordsmith, you are serving the Lord Christ!

Janet Parshall, host of In the Market with Janet Parshall

I will say to the Lord, ‘My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust.’”—Psalm 91:2, NASB

With all the instability in the world today, I have been pressing in to the reality that God is not only sovereign but He is my protector. I love that the God of all creation cares enough to protect me. But I also gravitate to the declaration the psalmist makes that God can be trusted. People will disappoint us, institutions will fail us, and life comes with turbulence and tribulation. But God, who loves and protects us, can always be trusted. I hold tightly to that truth-anchor in my life.
