Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope: Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. I say to myself. “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for Him.”Lamentations 3:21-24
~ I am good.
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that He who began good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.Philippians 1:4-6
~ I am lovable.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.John 15:9
Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly beloved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.Ephesians 5:1-2
~ I am a responsible person.
If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.Romans 10:9-10
If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.1 John 1:9
~ I am a valuable and important person.
For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. If we live, we live for the Lord; and if we die, we die for the Lord. So, whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord. For this very reason, Christ dies and returned to life so that He might be the Lord of both the dead and the living.Romans 14:7-9
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.1 Corinthians 6:19-20
~ I am capable of doing great things.
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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.2 Corinthians 12:9
I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deed is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be fulfilled to the measure of all the fullness of God.Ephesians 3:16-19
Grace is the limitless and undeserved kindness and mercy of God that is freely given to human beings. Jesus Christ’s being was full of divine goodness and favor which ws intended for the blessing of God’s people.
I do not proclaim Jesus Christ as my lord with my mouth, but with my life.
