VerseD: Matthew 23:11

The greatest among you shall be your servant.
Matthew 23:11, ESV

We should not seek power or authority in the Church. We should be loving each other through service and helping each other.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 12:9

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
2 Corinthians 12:9, ESV

Do not try to do it all. Do not worry about your weaknesses and faults. Do not believe God will heal everything in this life.

God likes shaming the “wisdom” of this world for His glory through our failings. He likes showing His power through us.

VerseD: 1 Timothy 2:5-6

For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is the testimony given at the proper time.
1 Timothy 2:5‭-‬6, ESV

There is only one way we can be saved, through Christ.

There is only One to whom we should pray for all people and things in life, our Father in heaven.

We should give thanks and seek His face, by the power of the Holy Spirit.

VerseD: Romans 6:14

For sin will have no dominion over you, since you are not under law but under grace.
Romans 6:14, ESV

This may be one of the hardest things for us to learn and know: that our sin only has as much control as we let it have over us. God’s grace, imparted through Christ’s atonement and by the Holy Spirit, frees us from sin’s power.

VerseD: 2 Peter 1:3

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence
2 Peter 1:3, ESV

We have not been granted everything in this life that we may want or that may make us comfortable.

In Christ, we have all that we need to live Christ-like lives and inherit eternal life.

VerseD: 2 Timothy 1:7

for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.
2 Timothy 1:7, ESV

We should not shrink back from sharing God’s truth with a rebellious, fallen world. We have the power to obey Christ’s commands and love by the Holy Spirit.

VerseD: Isaiah 40:31

but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31, ESV

Our God sustains us and fuels us by His Spirit.

Wait on God patiently. Trust Him in all things. He may not move on our time, but He holds us in His hands throughout.
