7 of the Shortest Verses in the Bible

The Bible is a book like no other. God is it's author. He breathed on "holy men of old" and it came to be. (2 Peter 1:20-21) It is 66 books. It is a single and cohesive unit. It is the unfolding drama of the redemption of humankind. It centers around a Person, the Lord Christ: His birth, His sinless life, His death on the cross for sins, His rising from the dead, His ascension into heaven and His soon coming return to earth. It is the final rule of faith and conduct for all who believe. (2 Timothy 3:16-17) The list of Bible verses I've gathered below are the shortest I could find on my own. As a unit they teach that God is behind it all, that Christ is the priority, that sin is to be shunned, that the Spirit can be grieved, that prayer is to be continuous, that joy is to overflow, that Jesus cares. You'll be blessed as you consider...
