Be Careful...

Blessed Are You...

11 “Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you. ~ Matthew 5:11-12 (NASB)

Teachers...

Not many of you should become teachers, my fellow believers, because you know that we who teach will be judged more strictly. ~ James 3:1 (NIV)

Live to Please God

Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more. 

~ 1 Thessalonians 4:1 (NASB)

Made Alive in the Spirit

For Christ also died for sins once for all, the just for the unjust, so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit; ~ 1 Peter 3:18 (NASB)

With Prayer and Fasting

Equipping of the Saints

11 And He gave some as apostles, and some as prophets, and some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers, 12 for the equipping of the saints for the work of service, to the building up of the body of Christ; ~ Ephesians 4:11-12 (NASB)

Do NOT Love the World

15 Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. ~ 1 John 2:15-16 (NASB)

We Can't Comprehend


5            “God thunders with His voice wondrously,

Doing great things which we cannot comprehend.
“For to the snow He says, ‘Fall on the earth,’
And to the downpour and the rain, ‘Be strong.’

Job 37:5-6 (NASB)
