You were getting along so well. Who has interfered with you to hold you back from following the truth?
Galatians 5:7 9TLB)

You have waited long and have not given up. You have suffered because of Me. You have kept going on and have not become tired. But I have this one thing against you. You do not love Me as you did at first.
Revelation 2:3-4 (NLV)

O My rebellious children, come back to Me again and I will heal you from your sins. And they reply. Yes we will come, for You are The Lord our God.
Jeremiah 3:22 (TLB)


And I shall send forth My angels with the sound of a Mighty Trumpet Blast, and they shall gather My chosen ones from the farthest ends of the earth and heaven.
Matthew 24:31 (TLB)


When someone becomes a Christian, he becomes a brand new person inside. He is not the same anymore. A new life has begun! All these new things are from God who brought us back to Himself through what Christ Jesus did. And God has given us the privilege of urging everyone to come into His Favor and be reconciled to Him.

For God was in Christ, restoring the world to Himself, no longer counting men’s sins against them but blotting them out. This is the wonderful message He has given us to tell others.

We are Christ’s ambassadors. God is using us to speak to you: we beg you, as though Christ Himself were here pleading with you, receive The Love He offers you, be reconciled to God.

For God took The Sinless Christ and poured into Him our sins. Then, in exchange, He poured God’s Goodness into us!
II Corinthians 5:17-21 (TLB)


God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him won’t perish but will have eternal life.  God didn’t send His Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
John 3:16-17 (CEB)

God saved you by His Grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it.
Ephesians 2:8-9 (NLT)

For I am not ashamed of this Good News about Christ. It is God’s powerful method of bringing all who believe it to heaven. This message was preached first to the Jews alone, but now everyone is invited to come to God in this same way.
Romans 1:16 (TLB)


When a man takes an oath, he is calling upon someone greater than himself to force him to do what he has promised or to punish him if he later refuses to do it; the oath ends all argument about it.

God also bound Himself with an oath, so that those he promised to help would be perfectly sure and never need to wonder whether He might change His plans.

He has given us both His Promise and His Oath, two things we can completely count on, for it is impossible for God to tell a lie. Now all those who flee to Him to save them can take new courage when they hear such assurances from God; now they can know without doubt that He will give them the salvation He has promised them.
Hebrews 6:16-18 (TLB)


All scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip His people to do every good work.
II Timothy 3:16-17 (NLT)

For no prophecy recorded in Scripture was ever thought up by the prophet himself. It was The Holy Spirit within these godly men who gave them true messages from God.
II Peter 1:20-21 (TLB)

We always thank God that when you heard The Word of God from us, you believed it. You did not receive it as from men, but you received it as The Word of God. That is what it is. It is at work in the lives of you who believe.
I Thessalonians 2:13 (NLV)


All of you together are Christ’s Body, and each of you is a part of it.
I Corinthians 12:27 (NLT)

Don’t you realize that all of you together are the temple of God and that The Spirit of God lives in you?
I Corinthians 3:16 (NLT)

Don’t you realize that your bodies are actually parts and members of Christ? So should I take part of Christ and join Him to a prostitute? Never!

And don’t you know that if a man joins himself to a prostitute she becomes a part of him and he becomes a part of her? For God tells us in the Scripture that in His Sight the two become one person.

But if you give yourself to The Lord, you and Christ are joined together as one person.
I Corinthians 6:15-17 (TLB)

That is why I say to run from sex sin. No other sin affects the body as this one does. When you sin this sin it is against your own body.

Haven’t you yet learned that your body is the home of The Holy Spirit God gave you, and that He lives within you? Your own body does not belong to you.

For God has bought you with a great price. So use every part of your body to give glory back to God because He owns it.
I Corinthians 6:18-20 (TLB)

I hope very much that I will have no reason to be ashamed. I hope to honor Christ with my body if it be by my life or by my death. I want to honor Him without fear, now and always.
Philippians 1:20 (NLV)

Do not give any part of your body for sinful use. Instead, give yourself to God as a living person who has been raised from the dead. Give every part of your body to God to do what is right.
Romans 6:13 (NLV)

You must not cut your body as a way to remember the dead. You must not make any tattoo marks on yourselves. I Am The Lord.
Leviticus 19:28 (ERV)

Well, I’ll tell you why. It is because you must do everything for the glory of God, even your eating and drinking.
I Corinthians 10:31 (TLB)

Don’t be teamed with those who do not love The Lord, for what do the people of God have in common with the people os sin? How can light live with darkness?

And what harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a Christian be a partner with one who doesn’t believe?
II Corinthians 6:14-15 (TLB)


For The Lord Himself will come down from heaven with a shout of command, with the voice of the archangel and with the blast of the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first.

Then we who are alive and remain on the earth will simultaneously be caught up (raptured) together with them (the resurrected ones) in the clouds to meet The Lord in the air, and so we will always be with The Lord.

Therefore comfort and encourage one another with these words (concerning our reunion with believers who have died).
I Thessalonians 4:16-18  (AMP)


Here is a simple, rule-of-thumb guide for behavior: Ask yourself what you want people to do for you, then grab the initiative and do it for them. Add up God’s Law and Prophets and this is what you get.

Matthew 20:16 (TLB)

A beautiful woman lacking discretion and modesty is like a fine gold ring in a pig’s snout.
Proverbs 11:22 (TLB)

When you go out to dinner with an influential person, mind your manners: Don’t gobble your food, don’t talk with your mouth full. And don’t stuff yourself; bridle your appetite.
Proverbs 23:1-3 (MSG)

While Jesus was on the way to Jerusalem, He was passing along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As He entered a village, He was met by ten lepers who stood at a distance; and they raised their voices and called out, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When He saw them, He said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were miraculously healed and made clean.

One of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, glorifying and praising and honoring God with a loud voice; and he lay face downward at Jesus’ Feet, thanking Him over and over. He was a Samaritan.

Then Jesus asked, “Were not ten of you cleansed? Where are the other nine? Was there no one found to return and to give thanks and praise to God, except this foreigner?” Jesus said to him, “Get up and go on your way. Your faith (your trust in Me and your confidence in God’s Power) has restored you to health.”
Luke 17:11-19 (AMP)

Because of The Blood of Christ, we are bought and made free from the punishment of sin. And because of His Blood, our sins are forgiven. His Loving-Favor to us is so rich.
Ephesians 1:7 (NLV)

Christ went into the Holiest Place of All one time for all people. He did not take the blood of goats and young cows to give to God as a gift in worship. He gave His Own Blood. By doing this, He bought us with His Own Blood and made us free from sin forever.
Hebrews 9:12 (NLV)

But there is more! Now that God has accepted us because Christ sacrificed His Life’s Blood, we will also be kept safe from God’s anger.
Romans 5:9 (CEV)

Yes, at one time you were far away from God, but now in Christ Jesus, you are brought near to Him. You are brought near to God through the Blood Sacrifice of Christ.
