And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

Good use us to bring change to the world.

Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.

Therefore you are great, O Lord God. For there is none like you, and there is no God besides you, according to all that we have heard with our ears.

God has revealed Himself through His Word. Scripture tells us He is the only God, and Jesus, through His life, death, and resurrection,  shows us His testimony is true.

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

How can others know the truth if we do not tell them?
Let us show the world the Word and Truth of God that they may be freed from sin.

For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea.

It is our job as Christians to spread the Gospel to the whole world, yet a day is coming when Christ shall return and the whole earth will be filled with His glory. No one who doubts will remain, and we will have eternity with Him.

VerseD: Romans 12:2

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:2, ESV

Unless you can admit you know little of how this world actually works and that your thinking and emotions are tainted by sin, it is impossible to discover God’s will. Let the Holy Spirit change your mind from worldly to heavenly.
