Believers should not just know God’s Word, but should live it out and follow it as their guiding light.
God gave Jesus the responsibility to manifest Himself to His followers, and they believed in Him.
Jesus has a passion for us and wants us to achieve good for the glorification of God.
Jesus is not aloof or unaware, but knows exactly what we need before we even realize it.
Jesus is infinitely better and more glorious than anything else in creation and He wants us to trust Him.
Our actions are judged by the standards of God’s law, but Jesus’ sacrifice means we don’t have to work for salvation.
All throughout His ministry, Jesus had a singular focus on His mission of redeeming the lost by way of the cross.
As He was beaten, mocked, and killed, Jesus prayed for His disciples.
Even though the story of the world is still unfolding, God has already written the ending.
For those who are saved in Christ, God the Father welcomes them into His presence with open arms.
As long as our eyes are on the cross, our prayers and our focus will be accomplishing the mission of Christ.
Because we know of the crucifixion and resurrection, we can see clearly God’s plan for salvation.
As believers, we have the privilege to enter into the presence of God and enjoy fellowship with Him through prayer.
When we become believers, we have instant access to God through representation in Jesus.
Although we do not have Jesus with us in person today, He is still with us through the presence of the Holy Spirit.
Because Jesus is eternal, He will always be with us to comfort us and give us joy.
The cross is a symbol of sorrow because our sin caused the death of Christ, but a symbol of rejoicing because He bought our forgiveness.
The Holy Spirit convicts us of impending judgment, and He does it through the preaching of the Gospel by His disciples.
The Holy Spirit reveals the false self-righteousness of man and our need for God’s divine righteousness imparted on us.
The Holy Spirit reveals our sins and convicts us of them, which is a gift from God so we may come to repentance.
Jesus gave us the Holy Spirit so that as we served Him and preached the Gospel, we could accomplish those tasks through His power.
As we follow Christ, our focus should turn more toward Him and less toward our own interests and well being.
Although we face persecution and hatred from the world, we have been tasked with going out and preaching the Gospel.
The only thing that can keep us from surrendering to hard times is a firm foundation in the Word of God.
Often, the reason people abandon church may have nothing to do with the church, but with the individual’s spiritual state.
To truly be a follower of God, we must acknowledge and obey Jesus, and that is what the world hates.
We will be hated because of the different mindset, perspective, and worldview we hold from the world.
Even when we exhibit love, compassion, and kindness, the world will hate us for identifying with Jesus.
Because the world hated Jesus, we can be sure it will hate us, but He has given us help.
Just as we carry certain items with us every day, we must equip ourselves daily with tools for our spiritual walk.
