    God has hand-picked each of us, equipped us abundantly,
    and commissioned us to bring the light of hope!

    "He has rescued us from the domain of darkness,
    and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
    in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins."
    Colossians 1:13-14

    Our weapons of grace and forgiveness can cut the devil to the heart, every time. So use them often!

    "So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people,
    and especially to those who are of the household of the faith."

    Galatians 6:10

    Man in his power, is hardly the tiniest fraction of God in His.

    "Some boast in chariots and some in horses,
    but we will boast in the name of the Lord, our God."

    Psalm 20:7

    Jesus sent the Spirit of God as a gift of Presence.
    His Presence is comfort, guidance, wisdom,
    and a deposit for the infinite treasures of heaven.

    "I am with you always, even to the end of the age."
    Matthew 26:20

    When the time is right, each of us is welcomed
    with the lavishing kisses of His glorious inheritance in heaven.

    "The the King will say to those on His right,
    'Come, you who are blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom
    prepared for you from the foundation of the World'."

    Matthew 25:34

    There's no shortcut to maturity in Christ.
    Persevering with God comes with its own kind
    of unique reward -- and it is so worth the work.

    "Let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be
    perfect and complete, lacking nothing."

    James 1:4

    Yes, people make life more complicated.
    But it's the simplest thing in the World to love Jesus
    among others who are loving Him too.

    "Not forsaking our assembling together,
    as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another;
    and all the more as you see the day drawing near."

    Hebrews 10:25

    If you trust Me, you'll feel a major difference. You'll learn over time
    what a true Partner and Friend I am to those who love Me.


    "Thus says the Lord. "Cursed is the man
    who trusts in mankind and makes flesh his strength,
    and whose heart turns away from the Lord."

    Jeremiah 17:5

    God is Creator. He created, He creates, and He will create....
    even today, even right now.

    "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."

    GIVING: IT IS ALL IN THE ATTITUDE (2 Cor.9:6-7)

    "It is all in your attitude. "God loves a cheerful giver." The English transliteration of the word for "cheerful" (hilaros) is hilarious. God loves a hilarious giver (v. 7). He desires our giving come from a heart that is cheerful, joyous, prompt, ready to do anything. Is there a readiness and a joy in your giving? Or is there the attitude of an old gripe, grudgingly holding on to every penny? But neither does God want us to be like a drunken sailor who throws his money away on drinks for everyone. He wants us to be responsible givers who give out of a heart that is overflowing with God's grace."

    Being authentic, sharing our imperfect moments,
    and praying together are some of the best ways to strengthen
    our relationships and build trust with one another.


    "Confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another
    so that you may be healed. The effective prayer
    of a righteous man can accomplish much."

    James 5:16

    No matter how circumstances may seem, good or bad -
    our God has thee reins, because He reigns.


    "Who has announced this from of old?
    Who has long snce declared it? Is it not I, the Lord?
    And there is no other God besides Me,
    a Righteous God and a Savior; there is none except Me."

    Isaiah 45:21
