This refers to me, and many of us I believe:

1Co:1:27: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;
1Co:1:28: And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:

My favorite passage in the entire bible is the passage where Jesus said:

"By the love with which you live, and your joy that overflows, they will know you are my disciples. In that love I shall abide".

Oh, ........ if only all Christians would make love the centerpiece of their lives.

"WHEN THE CHURCH HATES YOU,SPEAKS CURSES OVER YOU,SAYS ALL MANNER OF EVIL AGAINST YOU FALSELY FOR JESUS NAMESAKE,AND EVEN TRYS TO KILL YOU..." "Jesus was hated because His righteousness showed up all the evil around Him; .... revile you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely on .... Ephesians 2:19 says, "So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, ... All these things are being used by God to call out a people for His namesake. ..."
JOHN 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
*MATHEW 5:8 Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God...9 Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God. 10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
*Acts 17:6 And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;(IM A WORLD SHAKER.) 7 Whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus."

@Adrian Uh.... if you mean ur the next messiah I laugh at you, if you mean we're all the lambs of god then yeah ok.

I can't call myself a christian but I believe in Jesus, though I'm prone to believing the things said about him in various documentaries and the idea in the Da Vinci Code.

"It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of Heaven."

I am the Lamb of Isis.

i have a few
Philipians 4:13" for i can do all things through Christ who gives me strength" helps me that anything is possible as long as i stay close to God
Jeremiah 29:11 " for i know the plans i have for you plans to prosper you not to harm you" this one keeps me focused at uni knowing im there because God has a plan for my life and its all going to be worth it in the end.
and 1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love"
