VerseD: 2 Corinthians 7:10

For godly grief produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death.
2 Corinthians 7:10, ESV

We should feel guilty for our sins, and it should produce grief that we “hurt God”. But it is only good grief if we turn from our sin.

It is the difference between Peter and Judas Iscariot.

VerseD: 1 Peter 4:10

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace:
1 Peter 4:10, ESV

We could say “blessed to bless,” but it goes deeper. If you have opportunity, serve others and share the Gospel, even out of meager offerings and skill.

VerseD: Galatians 2:20

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2:20, ESV

Have you been crucified with Christ? Is your life all about the One who loved you and gave His life for you?

As a Christian, we are called to show and share that love and sacrifice with this world. (Not just pastors!)

VerseD: Romans 10:9

because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9, ESV

There is no other way to God but through Jesus.

You must believe in Him. Barring a few exceptions, you must confess this truth. Without these, you are still in your sins and separated from Him.

VerseD: Romans 12:12

Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.
Romans 12:12, ESV

We have so much to be thankful for, and we were promised this life would be hard, especially for Christians in this fallen world.

Be in constant conversation with our Lord, to thank Him and rely on Him.

VerseD: Romans 6:23

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23, ESV

We all have sinned and deserve God’s wrath and separation from Him.

Thanks to Jesus, we are shown grace and forgiveness to eternal life.

VerseD: 1 Thessalonians 5:17

pray without ceasing,
1 Thessalonians 5:17, ESV

Prayer is not a last resort or simply for asking for things or help.

Prayer should be a constant conversation with the Lord and Creator of everything … who has called us friends.
