VerseD: James 4:7

VerseD: Proverbs 13:3

VerseD: Romans 8:31

What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?

For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age,
Titus 2:11‭-‬12, ESV

In a western society, it is incredibly easy to give in to our passions and follow the world’s example.

That means it is hard to live rightly.

Praise God that He sent His Son to show us grace, and they sent the Spirit to strengthen us!

VerseD: Galatians 6:7-8

Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Galatians 6:7‭-‬8, ESV

“Why is God doing this to me?”

Frequently, bad things happen to us because of our bad decisions and actions.

Seek wisdom, Jesus, and the Spirit will guide you, even when our consequences come in this life.

VerseD: 1 Peter 1:24

for “All flesh is like grass and all its glory like the flower of grass. The grass withers, and the flower falls,

We are destined to die.

But the next verse reminds us that the Word of God lasts forever, and it is this Word that saves us to eternal life.

VerseD: Acts 1:8

But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

Do not forget that the King will answer, “as you did to the least of my brothers, you did to me” (Matthew 25:40).

Sharing the gospel is bringing the body of Christ together.

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day.

As Christians we are called to reconcile with a world that makes life hard. But we have a Savior who understands and strengthens us.

Trust Him.
