Righteous Because


“But to him who does not work but believes on Him who justifies the ungodly, his faith is accounted for righteousness,”‭‭Romans‬ ‭4:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

“… boldly declare, “I am not righteous because of what I have done or not done. I am righteous only because of the blood and finished work of Jesus at the cross!” Joseph Prince

Not Shy, But Bold, Loving And Sensible

img_0328And the special gift of ministry you received
when I laid hands on you and prayed
keep that ablaze!
God doesn’t want us to be shy with his gifts,
but bold and loving and sensible.
2 Tim 1:6-7MSG

Therefore I remind you to stir up the gift of God
which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear,
but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
2 Tim 1:6-7NKJV

Careful Not To be Distracted

“By giving Himself completely at the Cross,
actually dying for you,
Christ brought you over to God’s side
and put your lives together,
WHOLE and HOLY in his presence.

You don’t walk away from a gift like that!

You stay grounded and steady in that bond of trust,
CONSTANTLY TUNED IN TO THE MESSAGE,
careful not to be distracted or diverted.

THERE IS NO OTHER MESSAGE —just this one.
Every creature under heaven gets this same Message.
I, Paul, am a messenger of this Message.”

Colossians 1:21-23 MSG
