Give Thanks In All Circumstances

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

Foolish and Stupid Arguments

Don’t have anything to do with foolish and stupid arguments, because you know they produce quarrels. And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but must be kind to everyone, able to teach, not resentful. Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will.

2 Timothy 2:23-26

Flee the Evil Desires of Youth

Flee the evil desires of youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace, along with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart.

2 Timothy 2:22

Turn Away From Wickedness

Nevertheless, God’s solid foundation stands firm, sealed with this inscription: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Everyone who confesses the name of the Lord must turn away from wickedness.”

2 Timothy 2:19

Many Who Have Sinned

For I am afraid that when I come I may not find you as I want you to be, and you may not find me as you want me to be. I fear that there may be discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, slander, gossip, arrogance and disorder. I am afraid that when I come again my God will humble me before you, and I will be grieved over many who have sinned earlier and have not repented of the impurity, sexual sin and debauchery in which they have indulged.

2 Corinthians 12:20-21

I Delight In Weaknesses

That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

2 Corinthians 12:10

Those Who Belong to Christ Jesus

Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

But Only Grace

I Pray

Jesus Offered Up Prayers and Petitions

During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

Hebrews 5:7-10

Approach God’s Throne of Grace

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has ascended into heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.

Hebrews 4:14-16

Godliness With Contentment

But godliness with contentment is great gain.

1 Timothy 6:6

Who Is Approved

For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.

2 Corinthians 10:18

Wealth With Turmoil

Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.

Prayer of the Destitute

The Name of the LORD

Do Not Believe Every Spirit

Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

1 John 4:1

Marriage is a Covenant God Created

“For this reason a MAN will leave his FATHER and MOTHER and be united to his WIFE, and the two will become one flesh.”

Ephesians 5:31

That is why a MAN leaves his FATHER and MOTHER and is united to his WIFE, and they become ONE FLESH.

Genesis 2:24

Haven't You Read???

“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them MALE and FEMALE,’  and said, ‘For this reason a MAN will leave his FATHER and MOTHER and be united to his WIFE, and the two will become ONE FLESH’  ?  So they are no longer two, but ONE FLESH. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”

Matthew 19:4-6
