VerseD: Zephaniah 3:17

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.
Zephaniah 3:17, ESV

Our Savior God calms our tormented souls and complaining hearts through His sacrificial love, and He teaches us to sing with Joy and by His Holy Spirit.

VerseD: 1 Peter 2:16

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.
1 Peter 2:16 ESV

Freedom is the ability to choose. We are free to choose sin (from which we have been freed), but why would we want to use our freedom to slap God in the face rather than love Him?

VerseD: Matthew 7:13-14

“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few.”
Matthew 7:13‭-‬14, ESV

We should not be surprised that “the world is going to hell in a handbasket,” for we have been warned by Jesus. It does not mean we should like it.

We should strive to make sure we are on the narrow path and bringing as many along for the ride as we can.

VerseD: Proverbs 27:17

Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another.
Proverbs 27:17, ESV

As said in Hebrews, do not give up meeting together with fellow believers. We keep each other on track, in truth, and in the hope of Christ.

VerseD: Deuteronomy 31:6

“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
Deuteronomy 31:6 ESV

We have nothing to fear. Our God takes care of His own. The worst others can do to us is kill us, and that means we join our Lord.

VerseD: Proverbs 18:2

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion.
Proverbs 18:2, ESV

How easy it is for us to claim understanding without knowledge. We think we know God’s will and desires, but frequently we push our own onto His.

Humbly seek God through His Word and Church, being willing to learn before offering opinions.

VerseD: Jeremiah 17:14

Heal me, O Lord , and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for you are my praise.
Jeremiah 17:14, ESV

God alone is our Healer and salvation. Trust in our Creator and Savior. Give Him the praise He deserves.
