Do you Know Who You Are To God, In the name of Jesus?
"For we are God's [own] handiwork, His workmanship, recreated in Christ Jesus, born anew that we May Do Those Good works which God Predestined (Planned Beforehand) For us taking paths which He Prepared ahead of time, that we Should walk In Them Living the Good Life Which He Prearranged And Made Ready For us To Live."
“And I Am Convinced And Sure of This Very Thing, that He Who Began A Good Work In You Will Continue until the day of Jesus Christ , developing and perfecting and Bringing It To Full Completion In you.” (Philippians 1:6)
"So Do Not worry Or Be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble."Jesus--Matthew 6:34 (the Red Letters)
"Let your Light So Shine before men, that They May See your Good
glorify your Father in heaven."Jesus--Matthew 5:16 (the Red Letters)
6But you shall be called the priests of the Lord; people will speak of you as the ministers of our God. You shall eat the wealth of the nations, and the glory [once that of your captors] shall be yours.
7Instead of your [former] shame you shall have a twofold recompense; instead of dishonor and reproach [your people] shall rejoice in their portion. Therefore in their land they shall possess double [what they had forfeited]; everlasting joy shall be theirs.
9But you Are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, God's Own purchased, special people, that you may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.10Once you were not a people at all, but Now you Are God's people; once you were unpitied, but Now you Are pitied and have received mercy. 1 Peter 2:9-10
What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God Is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us All-how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us All things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God Has Chosen? It is God who Justifies.
Romans 8:31-33 - NIV
There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you Are All one IN Christ Jesus. If you Belong to Christ, then you Are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to The Promise.
Galatians 3:28-29 - NIV
“For it is by free grace (God's unmerited favor) that you are saved (delivered from judgment and made partakers of Christ's salvation) through faith. And this is not of yourselves , but it is the gift of God; Not because of works , lest any man should boast. ” (Ephesians 2:8-9)
"I delight to do Your will, O my God; yes, Your law is within my heart."Psalm 40:8
"But be doers of the Word obey the message, and not merely listeners to it, betraying yourselves into deception by reasoning contrary to the Truth.
For if anyone only listens to the Word without obeying it and being a doer of it, he is like a man who looks carefully at his own natural face in a mirror; For he thoughtfully observes himself, and then goes off and promptly forgets what he was like.But he who looks carefully into the faultless law, the law of liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it, being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer who obeys, he shall be blessed in his doing his life of obedience." James 1:22-25
"THEREFORE, there Is Now No Condemnation (no adjudging guilty of wrong) for those who are In Christ Jesus, who live And walk Not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of The Spirit.
For the Law of the Spirit of Life which Is In Christ Jesus the Law of our New Being has Freed me from the law of sin and of death.
For God Has Done what the Law could Not Do, its power being weakened by the flesh the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, God condemned sin in the flesh subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power Over All who Accept that Sacrifice.So that The Righteous And Just Requirement of the Law might be Fully met In us who Live And Move not in the ways of the flesh But In The Ways of The Spirit, our lives Governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, But Controlled By The Holy Spirit." Romans 8:1-4
"In days like these to believe that Good is the dominant principle is
an ordeal as by fire, but for me it would be much harder to surrender that faith."
~Helen Keller- "Let Us Have Faith" 1940
