God is rich in mercy, so ALL of your payment for sin was transferred to Jesus. Our FAITH is in the Gospel, our HOPE is because of the Gospel, and our LOVE is the fruit of the Gospel.
We need to value ALL people. We can do this by recognizing how God sees us - He loves and forgives US because of Jesus, not what we have done.
Jesus is our Creator. He came into this world to restore His image in us. Believers are the image-bearers of God.
What does it mean to live your life in Christ? Don't carry the baggage of what happened before. Leave the past in the past - your sins are forgiven and the enemy is defeated.
Do what matters, while here on this earth. Set your mind on eternal things and seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
God says to start living in HIS power, not ours; we are powerless over sin. Don't be convinced of the big lie that once you are saved by grace, you're now on your own. You are in God's hands now.
Jesus came to serve, not to be served. The essence of Christian marriage is to serve the other.
God commands, "Children, obey your parents". We need to help our kids understand God's love for THEM - that's why they will WANT to obey their parents.
Whatever you do, work hardily as if for the Lord.
What does a mature believer look like?
