I have the eSword Screen Saver installed on my computer here at work, and I’ve been looking for some single-verse summaries of the gospel message to use with it. So far I have 15 verses with varying degrees of completeness. If anyone has any suggestions for me to add to this list (or any other improvements), I’d love for you to let me know via the comments. The ones I currently have are as follows:

(John 1:17 ESV) –  For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
