To be RECEIVED by FAITH in Jesus

God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be RECEIVED BY FAITH. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who JUSTIFIES those who have FAITH in Jesus.

Romans 3:25-26

This Righteousness is given through FAITH in Jesus Christ to ALL who BELIEVE.

This righteousness is given through FAITH in Jesus Christ to ALL who BELIEVE. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and ALL are JUSTIFIED FREELY by his GRACE through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.

Romans 3:22-24

God Brings Salvation to Everyone Who Believes

For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile. For in the gospel the righteousness of God is revealed—a righteousness that is BY FAITH from first to last, just as it is written: “The righteous will live BY FAITH.”

Romans 1:16-17

Sanctified by Faith In Jesus

I will rescue you from your own people and from the Gentiles. I am sending you to them  to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are SANCTIFIED BY FAITH IN ME. ~Jesus

The Company of Mockers

Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,   but whose delight is in the law of the LORD , and who meditates on his law day and night.

Psalm 1:1-2

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand— when I awake, I am still with you.

Psalm 139:13-18

Too Lofty For Me

You have searched me, LORD , and you know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. Before a word is on my tongue you, LORD , know it completely. You hem me in behind and before, and you lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Psalm 139:1-6

The Church is not a Building or Denomination

The church is not a building or a denomination. According to the Bible, the church is the body of Christ—all those who have placed their faith in Jesus Christ for salvation (John 3:16;1 Corinthians 12:13).

The Word of His Grace

“Now I commit you to God and to the word of his grace, which can build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.

Acts 20:32

My Only Aim

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

Acts 20:24

These Commandments

These commandments that I give you today are to be on your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7
