Scriptures from This Page
I pray that the glorious Father, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, would give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation as you come to know Christ better.
2 Corinthians 5:17-21
Whoever is a believer in Christ is a new creation. The old way of living has disappeared. A new way of living has come into existence. God has done all this. He has restored our relationship with him through Christ, and has given us this ministry of restoring relationships. In other words, God was using Christ to restore his relationship with humanity. He didn’t hold people’s faults against them, and he has given us this message of restored relationships to tell others. Therefore, we are Christ’s representatives, and through us God is calling you. We beg you on behalf of Christ to become reunited with God. God had Christ, who was sinless, take our sin so that we might receive God’s approval through him.
So then, “Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”
We will not hide them from our children. We will tell the next generation about the Lord’s power and great deeds and the miraculous things he has done.
Train a child in the way he should go, and even when he is old he will not turn away from it.
