What character in the Bible is most inspirational for you?
Outside of Jesus? Of course Christ is by far the most compelling. But outside of Jesus, I would say the Apostle Paul. He was the ultimate sociologist, the ultimate theologian, the ultimate communicator and the ultimate apologist. He was in the truest sense passionate about his God! Every time he encountered a new culture, he studied it and was always able to discern the questions that were being asked. He boldly addressed their questions by answering them from Scripture. Everywhere he went he addressed their questions (which were different in most every region he visited) in a brilliant, in-depth, challenging, and loving way. He was a pretty remarkable person.
If you could only pick one favorite Bible verse, which would you choose and why?
*23rd Psalm - It is good to know the Lord is our Shepherd and provides for all our needs.
