VerseD: 2 Thessalonians 3:3

But the Lord is faithful. He will establish you and guard you against the evil one.

I lift up my eyes to the hills. From where does my help come?

And we can tell everyone else from where our hope comes.

VerseD: Matthew 28:19

Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
Matthew 28:19, ESV

That means GO OUT and make disciples!

Remember, God the Holy Spirit dwells in us!

VerseD: Matthew 8:10
