VerseD: Hebrews 13:8

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
Hebrews 13:8, ESV

Our timeless, all-powerful, loving, ever-present, unchanging God put on human flesh to draw us to Himself in grace and forgiveness.

Trust in His nature and Word, not the changing winds of doctrine so prevalent nor emotional responses to life.

VerseD: Ephesians 3:20-21

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Ephesians 3:20‭-‬21, ESV

We ask God without knowing what He has for us. We fail to understand grace, peace, forgiveness, and eternity. Yet we think we know what to ask for in this life.

Seek first the Kingdom, and you will be amazed at what He does.

VerseD: Micah 7:18

Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his inheritance? He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love.
Micah 7:18, ESV

God overlooked ignorance of sin for thousands of years. He removes our sin now.

Why?

Because He delighted to come to us, to sacrifice Himself, so that, when we believe in this, He lavishes His love, grace, and forgiveness on us.

VerseD: Luke 6:36

Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful.

VerseD: Hebrews 4:16

Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
Hebrews 4:16, ESV

God understands us, for He became one of us through the Son who lived amongst us, was tempted as we are, and died for our sins. We now know we can draw near to Him as faithful servants and sons (and daughters!)

VerseD: John 15:5

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.
John 15:5, ESV

All our deeds and works are tainted by our sin. We only truly do good works when we are living in the power and grace of Christ.

VerseD: Proverbs 9:10

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.
Proverbs 9:10, ESV

True wisdom reveals our sinful nature and desperate need for grace and forgiveness from our Creator and Judge.

Seek the wisdom of God, found in the Person of Jesus Christ.
