God wants us to grow up, to know the whole
truth and tell it in love—like Christ in every-
thing. We take our lead from Christ, who is
the source of everything we do.
Ephesians 4:15 MSG
I took you from the ends of the earth, from
its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You
are my servant’; I have chosen you and have
not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am
with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your
God. I will strengthen you and help you; I
will uphold you with my righteous right
God, who has called you into fellowship with
his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
1 Corinthians 1:9
His divine power has given us
everything we need for life and
godliness through our knowledge
of him who called us by his own
glory and goodness. Through
these he has given us his very
great and precious promises, so
that through them you may par-
ticipate in the divine nature and
escape the corruption in the
world caused by evil desires.
2 Peter 1:3-4
And I am sure that God, who
began the good work within you,
will continue his work until it is
finally finished on that day when
Christ Jesus comes back again.
Philippians 1:6 NLT
The thief comes only to steal and kill and de-
stroy; I have come that they may have life, and
have it to the full.
Now this is eternal life: that they may know
you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom
you have sent.
He who has the Son has life; he who does not
have the Son of God does not have life.
1 John 5:12
GOD, I have sensed my need for you, and I have sensed you at work in me,
but I have sought fulfillment apart from you. I have served myself instead of
you. I have sinned. I believe you sent Jesus to die in my place, to make peace
with you for me, and I believe he is alive today with you. Please forgive me.
Do your work in me. Fill me with your Spirit. I surrender my life to you today
in Jesus’ name. Amen.
