Everyone of us need to be running in this race, to deny ourselves, and to be serious about winning. Hebrews 12:1-3 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with […]
The grace of God that brings salvation is seen in the old testament. Grace is God’s favor to help and save us. We see Noah found grace in God’s sight that helped him build an ark and care for all the animals. God’s grace has appeared to all.
Many are saying they’re serving God but their service is not acceptable according to God. Hebrews 12:28-29 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire.
When the scripture says “serve God acceptably,” that means there is an unacceptable way. Hebrews 12:28-29 Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear: For our God is a consuming fire. We must have to have a holy heart […]
Holy: dedicated, consecrated, pure, sinless, separated from sin I Peter 1:15-16 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

“Then said Jesus unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things. And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.“ John 8: 28-29
