assurance and encouragement

I came across these 2 bible verses 3 times today, I think.

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
- Colossians 1:16

I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
- Galatians 2:20

First while watching a video shared by a friend on facebook, then at cell group and again while googling up for verses related to 'love'.

Perhaps these 2 verses always come hand in hand but it simply amazes me each time i stumble upon the same verse a few times in a short period of time.

It's not just bible verse. I even came across some same phrases at least twice over the past one week.

- We can never surprise God because He knows everything.
- God will never give up on us.
- Blasphemy of the Holy Spirit is not a one time sin but a lifetime sin of which we reject Jesus until the day we die and that is unforgivable.

That's an encouragement for me and I hope it is for you too =)
