Be sober, be vigilant

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” – 1 Pet. 5:8

Never let your guard down.

I, the LORD, do all these things

“I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the LORD, do all these things.” – God (Isa. 45:7)

The Lord is sovereign.

Even when I am old and gray, God, do not abandon me

“And even when I am old and gray, God, do not abandon me, Until I declare Your strength to this generation, Your power to all who are to come.” – Psa. 71:18

A great prayer that God will sustain us in our old age, not for us, but that we may pass on the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the next generation.

God is our shield and exceedingly great reward

“Do not be afraid, Abram. I am your shield, your exceedingly great reward.” – God (Gen. 15:1)

God is our shield and exceedingly great reward.

All Scripture

“The Bible is authoritative on everything of which it speaks. Moreover, is speaks of everything.” – Cornelius Van Til

Shone in our hearts

“For God, who said, ‘Light shall shine out of darkness,’ is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.” – 2 Cor. 4:6

God did not shine in our hearts for our sakes only, but that we might reflect it.

Finally, all of you, 4

“Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.” – 1 Pet. 3:8

Finally, all of you, 3

Finally, all of you be of one mind, having compassion for one another; love as brothers, be tenderhearted, be courteous.” – 1 Pet. 3:8

The God of love and peace will be with you

“Become complete. Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.” – 2 Cor. 13:11

Apart from faith in Jesus, we stand condemned in our sin and alienated from God. Only through faith in Jesus’s sacrificial death on the cross can we receive forgiveness of sins and enjoy the love and peace of God.

Sanctified by faith in Me

“to open their eyes, in order to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in Me.” – Acts 26:18

Jesus does it all.
