Ephesians 4:27-29 “Neither give place to the devil. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth. Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.”
Jeremiah 29:11-12 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.”
John 10:10 “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
2 Peter 1:3-10 ” According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins. Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:”
God has given you everything for this New Year; everything you need he has given freely to us. Qualities that was with Jesus are with us because of God’s Holy Spirit! We just have to receive it, add unto our faith by doing our part as obedient followers of Jesus Christ. Notice I said followers and not fans. There are many fans of Jesus Christ, respect what he did as a “man” but never claim to know or understand that he was and is LORD of Lord’s and KING of King’s. Failing to realize that Jesus (Yeshua) was and is God and if it wasn’t for Jesus Christ, we wouldn’t able to have such confidence, faith and love but because of what he did for us in the shedding of his precious blood and resurrection. We can walk knowing that we are God’s children and it is the Holy spirit that is in us: it is GOD in us and we are His! We are God’s Chosen.
Happy New Year to all!
God bless you and God loves you!
