2 Corinthians 12:9. God’s grace comes to us on His terms. We cannot bargain with Him and our flesh will at many times be at odds with God’s purpose in our lives. To receive God’s continuing grace we can only surrender completely to our Lord Jesus Christ. We can ask God for mercy, but He will not always take away our infirmities.
Ephesians 2:8. Unless you totally believe that there is no after-life, all people have a desire to go to Heaven and live forever. Because of God’s love for all of mankind He has offered us a free gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. If through faith we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we can receive God’s grace of eternal life.
Matthew 22:37. If God created us, then He has a purpose for our lives. He is the one that gives us the meaning of life. God has given everything and everyone a purpose. God did not just create us for no purpose. When we bake a cake, the cake has a purpose. When we create something at work, it has a purpose. When God created mankind He had a purpose for mankind.
Isaiah 30:12. When we ask how can we trust someone, the real question that we need to ask is how can we trust God. Every time we put our trust in man instead of God and His Word, we will be let down. It is God that we need to trust, not man. In fact, when we put our trust in someone or something else, we are basically saying that we trust others more than we trust God.
Romans 8:23. The definition of Christian redemption also addresses our physical body. Redemption will occur not only for us spiritually, but also physically. Our body will change from mortal to immortal. The final redemptive act of Christian redemption is the glorifying of our bodies.
Romans 8:13 Only through the Holy Spirit can we kill the deeds of the flesh and take on the mind of Christ. The Holy Spirit gives us spiritual life eternally. When the Holy Spirit is in us we no longer let Satan's deception defeat us by living after the flesh. We can focus on taking on the mind of Christ as the Holy Spirit in us kills the flesh.
Romans 8:11. In Romans 8:11 the Bible says that we can have the same spirit in us as the Spirit of Him that raised Jesus from the dead. All we have to do is accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior. Through His act on the cross we are made clean and righteous enabling the resurrection spirit to enter us (Romans 8:10).
Romans 8:9. When you are sinning and in the flesh, the Spirit of God is not in you. If you are in the flesh, you do not have the capability to be successful in spiritual warfare. Only when the Spirit of God is in you can you be equipped to do Spiritual battle. Spiritual warfare is taking on the mind of Christ both in you and others.
Romans 8:4. Romans chapter 8 describes to us how the Holy Spirit equips us for spiritual warfare. The Holy Ghost guides us in how to conduct spiritual warfare. By us fully surrendering to the Spirit of God in us, we can be fully equipped and led by the Spirit.
Acts 2:37. A passion for Jesus only overtakes us when we have an extraordinary encounter with Him. Jesus and His resurrection must be experience to be believed. A passion for Jesus only occurs when He touches our heart and pierces it with His truth, His goodness, His love, and His grace.
