If you are a born-again believer in Jesus Christ...
You (#7) have extreme value in the eyes of God
YOU ARE PART OF THE FAMILY OF GOD IN HEAVEN AND EARTH (Eph 3:14-21 KJV)
For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, {15} Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, {16} That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man; {17} That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, {18} May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; {19} And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. {20} Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, {21} Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. YOU ARE ESTABLISHED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS, FAR FROM FEAR, TERROR OR OPPRESSION - (Isa 54:14-17 KJV) In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee. {15} Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake. {16} Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy. {17} No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn.
This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD. YOU ARE FAVOURED BY THE LORD OF HEAVEN (Job 10:12 KJV) Thou (O Lord) hast granted me life and favour, and thy visitation hath preserved my spirit. (Mat 6:31-34 KJV) Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? {32} (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. {33} But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. {34} Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

YOU ARE A FELLOW CITIZEN WITH THE SAINTS (Eph 2:19-22 KJV) Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; {20} And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; {21} In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: {22} In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit. YOU ARE A FELLOW WORKER WITH GOD IN HIS KINGDOM (1 Cor 3:6-11 KJV) I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. {7} So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase. {8} Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour. {9} For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building. {10} According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. {11} For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. YOU ARE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT (Acts 4:31 KJV) And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. (Eph 5:17-21 KJV) Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. {18} And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit; {19} Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord; {20} Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ; {21} Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

YOU ARE COMPLETE IN JESUS CHRIST(Col 2:6-10 KJV) As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: {7} Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. {8} Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. {9} For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. {10} And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
YOU ARE FILLED WITH THE FRUITS OF RIGHTEOUSNESS (Phil 1:9-11 KJV) And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; {10} That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; {11} Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God. (Psa 1:1-3 KJV) Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. {2} But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. {3} And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
YOU CAN EXPERIENCE THE FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT (Gal 5:22-26 KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, {23} Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. {24} And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. {25} If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. {26} Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.
YOU CAN BE FILLED WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD'S WILL (Col 1:9-13 KJV) For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; {10} That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; {11} Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; {12} Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: {13} Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
JESUS CHRIST INTERCEDES WITH THE FATHER FOR YOU (John 17:8-18 KJV) For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me. {9} I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine. {10} And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them. {11} And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are. {12} While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled. {13} And now come I to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves. {14} I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. {15} I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. {16} They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. {17} Sanctify them through thy truth: thy word is truth. {18} As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
GOD IS CONTINUING TO GROW YOU UP INTO A FINISHED PRODUCT OF MATURITY (Phil 1:6-11 KJV) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: {7} Even as it is meet for me to think this of you all, because I have you in my heart; inasmuch as both in my bonds, and in the defence and confirmation of the gospel, ye all are partakers of my grace. {8} For God is my record, how greatly I long after you all in the bowels of Jesus Christ. {9} And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; {10} That ye may approve things that are excellent; that ye may be sincere and without offence till the day of Christ; {11} Being filled with the fruits of righteousness, which are by Jesus Christ, unto the glory and praise of God.

You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God Empty Re: You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God

Post  Admin on Sat 28 Feb 2009, 6:15 pm

You (#6) have extreme value in the eyes of God YOU ARE CALLED TO BE A DISCIPLE OF JESUS CHRIST
A Disciple =A learner; a scholar; one who receives instruction from another;2. A follower; an adherent to the doctrines of another. Hence the constant attendants of Christ were called his disciples; and hence all Christians are called his disciples, as they profess to learn and receive his doctrines and precepts.
(John 8:30-32 KJV) As he spake these words, many believed on him. {31} Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; {32} And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. YOU MAY BOLDLY COME TO GOD'S THRONE OF GRACE TO OBTAIN MERCY (Heb 4:12-16 KJV) For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. {13} Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. {14} Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. {15} For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. {16} Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. IF YOU BELIEVE IN CHRIST YOU HAVE ETERNAL LIFE (John 3:33-36 KJV) He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. {34} For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him. {35} The Father loveth the Son, and hath given all things into his hand. {36} He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him. (1 John 5:11-13 KJV) And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. {12} He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. {13} These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. YOUR MIND HAS BEEN ENLIGHTENED TO UNDERSTAND THE SPIRITUAL RICHES THAT GOD PROVIDES (Eph 1:18-23 KJV) The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, {19} And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, {20} Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, {21} Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: {22} And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, {23} Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all. GOD HAS ENRICHED YOU IN ALL UTTERANCE AND KNOWLEDGE AND SPIRITUAL GIFTS (1 Cor 1:4-9 KJV) I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; {5} That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance(Grk="logos" the divine expression), and in all knowledge(Grk="knowing"); {6} Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: {7} So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: {8} Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. {9} God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. YOU HAVE BEEN SPIRITUALLY EQUIPPED FOR ALL GOOD WORKS (2 Tim 3:16-17 KJV) All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: {17} That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works. (2 Tim 4:1-3 KJV) I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; {2} Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. {3} For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; YOU ARE EMPOWERED TO OBEY GOD'S WORD BY THE INDWELLING PRESENCE OF CHRIST (Phil 2:8-13 KJV) And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. {9} Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: {10} That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; {11} And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. {12} Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out (Grk=perform fully) your own salvation with fear and trembling. {13} For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. DISCIPLESHIP MAY RIGHTFULLY INCLUDE CHASTENING TO HELP US DEPART FROM SINNING (Heb 12:5-10 KJV) And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: {6} For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. {7} If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? {8} But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. {9} Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? {10} For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. THE GRACE OF GOD PROVIDES ENCOURAGEMENT AS WE WAIT FOR THE LORD'S RETURN (2 Th 2:16-17 KJV) Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, {17} Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. (2 Th 3:1-5 KJV) Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you: {2} And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not faith. {3} But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil. {4} And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. {5} And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ. GOD HAS ESTABLISHED YOU TO BE A HOLY PERSON SEPARATED UNTO HIMSELF (Deu 28:6-10 KJV) Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. {7} The LORD shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face: they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways. {8} The LORD shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee. {9} The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of the LORD thy God, and walk in his ways. {10} And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee. GOD HAS PROVIDED YOU WITH EVERY GOOD THING IN CHRIST (Phil 4:6-9 KJV) Be careful{Grk=full of cares} for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. {7} And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. {8} Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. {9} Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you. (Mat 5:14-16 KJV) Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. {15} Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. {16} Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. GOD IS FAITHFUL TO THE POOR AND LOWLY THAT TRUST IN HIM (1 Sam 2:7-10 KJV) The LORD maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up. {8} He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth up the beggar from the dunghill, to set them among princes, and to make them inherit the throne of glory: for the pillars of the earth are the Lord's, and he hath set the world upon them. {9} He will keep the feet of his saints, and the wicked shall be silent in darkness; for by strength shall no man prevail. {10} The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken to pieces; out of heaven shall he thunder upon them: the LORD shall judge the ends of the earth; and he shall give strength unto his king, and exalt the horn of his anointed. (John 10:27-30 KJV) My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: {28} And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. {29} My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. {30} I and my Father are one.

You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God Empty Re: You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God

Post  Admin on Tue 24 Feb 2009, 10:44 am

You (#5) have extreme value in the eyes of God YOU HAVE BEEN CREATED IN THE IMAGE OF GOD (Gen 1:27-28 KJV) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. {28} And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. (Eph 4:24 KJV) And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness. (Isa 43:7 KJV) Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. YOU ARE CRUCIFIED WITH CHRIST (Gal 2:20 KJV) I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. (Gal 5:22-25 KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, {23} Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. {24} And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. {25} If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. (Gal 6:14 KJV) But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world. (Rom 6:6 KJV) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. GOD CONSIDERS YOUR SINFUL OLD NATURE DEAD IN CHRIST (Rom 6:4-5 KJV) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. {5} For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: YOU ARE DEAD TO SIN BUT ALIVE TO CHRIST (Rom 6:11-14 KJV) Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. {12} Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. {13} Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God. {14} For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace. YOU ARE KEPT SAFE BY THE LOVE OF CHRIST (Rom 8:35-39 KJV) Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? {36} As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. {37} Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. {38} For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, {39} Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. YOU ARE CONTINUALLY IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD (Psa 73:23-28 KJV) Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. {24} Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. {25} Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee. {26} My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the strength of my heart, and my portion for ever. {27} For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. {28} But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works. GOD DESIRES TO REJOICE OVER YOU, BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE FOR YOU (Zep 3:17 KJV) The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. (Num 14:8-9 KJV) If the LORD delight in us, then he will bring us into this land, and give it us; a land which floweth with milk and honey. {9} Only rebel not ye against the LORD, neither fear ye the people of the land; for they are bread for us: their defence is departed from them, and the LORD is with us: fear them not. (Deu 30:9-10 KJV) And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers: {10} If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul. GOD DELIVERS US OUT OF OUR DISTRESSES (Psa 107:6-9 KJV) Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them out of their distresses. {7} And he led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. {8} Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men! {9} For he satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness. YOU CAN BE COURAGEOUS BECAUSE THE LORD IS WITH YOU (1 Chr 28:20 KJV) And David said to Solomon his son, Be strong and of good courage, and do it: fear not, nor be dismayed: for the LORD God, even my God, will be with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee, until thou hast finished all the work for the service of the house of the LORD. (1 Cor 16:13-14 KJV) Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men{Grk=act in a manly fashion} , be strong. {14} Let all your things be done with charity. (1 Cor 9:25-27 KJV) And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible. {26} I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: {27} But I keep under my body under subjection{Grk=especially the body's passions} , and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. YOU ARE CREATED IN CHRIST FOR GOOD WORKS (Eph 2:4-10 KJV) But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, {5} Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) {6} And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: {7} That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. {8} For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: {9} Not of works, lest any man should boast. {10} For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. GOD DELIGHTS IN YOU, THE HIGHEST PART OF HIS CREATION (Psa 147:5-11 KJV) Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite. {6} The LORD lifteth up the meek: he casteth the wicked down to the ground. {7} Sing unto the LORD with thanksgiving; sing praise upon the harp unto our God: {8} Who covereth the heaven with clouds, who prepareth rain for the earth, who maketh grass to grow upon the mountains. {9} He giveth to the beast his food, and to the young ravens which cry. {10} He delighteth not in the strength of the horse: he taketh not pleasure in the legs of a man. {11} The LORD taketh pleasure in them that fear him, in those that hope in his mercy. DETERMINE TO FOCUS YOUR ATTENTION ON JESUS CHRIST AND HIM CRUCIFIED (1 Cor 2:1-5 KJV) And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God. {2} For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified. {3} And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling. {4} And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: {5} That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God Empty Re: You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God

You (#2) have extreme value in the eyes of God

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL IN THE EYES OF GOD

(Psa 149:4-6 KJV)
For the LORD taketh pleasure in his people:
he will beautify the meek with salvation.
{5} Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds.
{6} Let the high praises of God be in their mouth...

YOU ARE BECOMING A SPIRITUALLY MATURE PERSON

(Eph 4:11-15 KJV)
And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
{12} For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
{13} Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man,
unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ:
{14} That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine,
by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
{15} But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:

YOU ARE BECOMING CONFORMED TOTHE IMAGE OF CHRIST

(Rom 8:29-32 KJV)
For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son,
that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.
{30} Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called:
and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
{31} What shall we then say to these things?
If God be for us, who can be against us?
{32} He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all,
how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?

AS A BELIEVER IN THE RESURRECTION, YOU NEED NOT BE ASHAMED

(Rom 10:9-11 KJV)
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
{10} For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
{11} For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

YOU BELONG TO GOD, AND HE GAVE YOU TO CHRIST

(John 17:6-10 KJV)
I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world:
thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.
{7} Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee.
{8} For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them,
and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
{9} I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
{10} And all mine are thine, and thine are mine;
and I am glorified in them.

YOU WILL BE BLAMELESS IN THE EYES OF GOD ON THE DAY OF CHRIST'S RETURN

(1 Cor 1:4-9 KJV)
I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ;
{5} That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
{6} Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you:
{7} So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
{8} Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.
{9} God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.


YOU ARE BLESSED WITH ALL SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS IN HEAVENLY PLACES

(Eph 1:3-6 KJV)
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
{4} According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world,
that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
{5} Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself,
according to the good pleasure of his will,
{6} To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

YOU ARE THE TEMPLE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

(1 Cor 6:17-20 KJV)
But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit.
{18} Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body;
but he that committeth fornication{Grk=to indulge in unlawful lust} sinneth against his own body.
{19} What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost
which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
{20} For ye are bought with a price:
therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.

YOU HAVE ACCESS TO THE BOLDNESS OF SERVANTS OF GOD

(Eccl 8:1 KJV)
Who is as the wise man? and who knoweth the interpretation of a thing?
a man's wisdom maketh his face to shine,
and the boldness of his face shall be changed.

(Acts 4:9-14 KJV)
If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man, by what means he is made whole;
{10} Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,
that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead,
even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
{11} This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.
{12} Neither is there salvation in any other:
for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
{13} Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John,
and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled;
and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
{14} And beholding the man which was healed standing with them,
they could say nothing against it.

YOU CAN CHOOSE TO BE A BONDSERVENT OF GOD

(Psa 116:14-19 KJV)
I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
{15} Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
{16} O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid:
thou hast loosed my bonds.
{17} I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
{18} I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people,
{19} In the courts of the Lord's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem.
Praise ye the LORD.

YOUR SOUL IS PURIFIED THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD
(1 Pet 1:22-25 KJV)
Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth
through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren,
see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
{23} Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible,
by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.
{24} For all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of man as the flower of grass.
The grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away:
{25} But the word of the Lord endureth for ever.
And this is the word which by the gospel is preached unto you.

YOU HAVE BEEN BORN OF GOD AND ARE IN GOD

(1 John 5:18-20 KJV)
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not;
but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
{19} And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.
{20} And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true,
and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ.
This is the true God, and eternal life.

You (#4) have extreme value in the eyes of God

YOU HAVE BEEN CHOSEN BY GOD TO SHOW FORTH HIS PRAISES- (1 Pet 2:9-10 KJV) But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: {10} Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. YOU HAVE BEEN MADE A CITIZEN OF HEAVEN (Phil 3:20-21 KJV) For our conversation{Grk=citizenship} is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: {21} Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. YOU ARE LIKE CLAY IN THE HANDS OF GOD, THE HEAVENLY POTTER (Jer 18:3-6 KJV) Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels. {4} And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. {5} Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying, {6} O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel. YOU HAVE BEEN MADE CLEAN BY OBEYING THE WORD OF GOD (Ezek 36:25-27 KJV) Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. {26} A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh. {27} And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them. (John 15:3-9 KJV) Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you. {4} Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me. {5} I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. {6} If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. {7} If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. {8} Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples. {9} As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love. YOU CAN BE CLEANSED OF SIN BY CONFESSION AND ASKING GOD FOR FORGIVENESS- (1 John 1:7-10 KJV) But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin. {8} If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. {9} If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. {10} If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
YOU ARE CLOTHED WITH CHRIST (Gal 3:27-29 KJV) For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. {28} There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. {29} And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. YOU ARE A JOINT-HEIR OF HEAVENLY TREASURES WITH CHRIST (Rom 8:17-19 KJV) And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. {18} For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. {19} For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God. YOU ARE COMFORTED WITH THE SALVATION AND CARE OF GOD (2Th 2:15-17 KJV) Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which ye have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. (16) Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, (17) Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. (Isa 12:1-5 KJV) And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. (2) Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. (3) Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation. (4) And in that day shall ye say, Praise the LORD, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people, make mention that his name is exalted. (5) Sing unto the LORD; for he hath done excellent things: this is known in all the earth.
YOU ARE COMPLETE IN CHRIST (Col 2:8-10 KJV) Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. {9} For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. {10} And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: YOU CAN HAVE CONFIDENCE BECAUSE OF THE INDWELLING PRESENCE OF GOD (1 John 4:15-19 KJV) Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God. {16} And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him. {17} Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world. {18} There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. {19} We love him, because he first loved us.
YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT OF ETERNAL SECURITY OF SALVATION (1 John 5:11-13 KJV) And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. {12} He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. {13} These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God. YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT THAT YOUR PRAYERS WILL BE ANSWERED (1 John 5:14-15 KJV) And this is the confidence that we have in him that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: {15} And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him. YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT THAT GOD WILL FINISH THE WORK HE STARTED IN YOU (Phil 1:6 KJV) Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ: (Heb 12:2-4 KJV) Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. {3} For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. {4} Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. (Psa 138:6-8 KJV) Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. {7} Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me. {8} The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands. (Eph 4:11-15 KJV) And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; {12} For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: {13} Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ: {14} That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; {15} But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: YOU CAN BE CONFIDENT THAT HE WILL NEVER LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU- (Heb 13:5-6 KJV) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. {6} So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
YOU CAN EXPERIENCE CONTENTMENT IN THE MIDST OF DEPRIVATION (Phil 4:11-13 KJV) Not that I speak in respect of want: For I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. {12} I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. {13} I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. YOU CAN EXPERIENCE CONTENTMENT IN THE MIDST OF INFIRMITIES AND PERSECUTIONS (2 Cor 12:7-10 KJV) And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. {8} For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. {9} And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. {10} Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

You (#3) have extreme value in the eyes of God

YOU ARE A BRANCH OF THE TRUE VINE (John 15:5-8 KJV) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. {6} If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and men gather them, and cast them into the fire, and they are burned. {7} If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you. {8} Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
JESUS CHRIST CONSIDERS YOU TO BE HIS BROTHER (Heb 2:11-15 KJV) For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, {12} Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. {13} And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me. {14} Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; {15} And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. THOUGH YOU WERE FAR OFF, YOU ARE BROUGHT NEAR TO GOD BY THE BLOOD OF CHRIST (Rom 5:9-11 KJV) Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. {10} For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. {11} And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. (1 Cor 6:9-11 KJV) Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, {10} Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. {11} And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. YOU ARE BUILT UP INTO A SPIRITUAL HOUSE AND A HOLY PRIESTHOOD (1 Pet 2:5-8 KJV) Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. {6} Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded. {7} Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner, {8} And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which stumble at the word, being disobedient: whereunto also they were appointed.
WE ARE BURIED WITH CHRIST BY BAPTISM, AND RAISED TO NEWNESS OF LIFE IN HIM (Rom 6:4-12 KJV) Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. {5} For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: {6} Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. {7} For he that is dead is freed from sin. {8} Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: {9} Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him. {10} For in that he died, he died unto sin once: but in that he liveth, he liveth unto God. {11} Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord. {12} Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. WE ARE CALLED UNTO THE ETERNAL GLORY OF CHRIST (1 Pet 5:6-11 KJV) Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: {7} Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. {8} Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: {9} Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world. {10} But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. {11} To him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. WE CAN EXPERIENCE INNER PEACE FROM GOD (Phil 4:4-7 KJV) Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. {5} Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand. {6} Be careful{Grk=full of cares} for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. {7} And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
GOD RENEWS OUR STRENGTH (Isa 40:28-31 KJV) Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the LORD, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding. {29} He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. {30} Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: {31} But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. BY REGENERATION, GOD CHANGES YOU INTO A NEW PERSON (1 Sam 10:6-7,9-10 KJV) And the spirit of the LORD will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man. {7} And let it be, when these signs are come unto thee, that thou do as occasion serve thee; for God is with thee. ...{9} And it was so, that when he had turned his back to go from Samuel, God gave him another heart: and all those signs came to pass that day. {10} And when they came thither to the hill, behold, a company of prophets met him; and the spirit of God came upon him, and he prophesied among them. IF YOU RECEIVE CHRIST, GOD MAKES YOU HIS CHILD (John 1:12-14 KJV) But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: {13} Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. {14} And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. YOU ARE TENDERLY LOVED BY GOD (Isa 40:10-11 KJV) Behold, the Lord GOD will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. {11} He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. (Psa 25:6-13 KJV) Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old. {7} Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness' sake, O LORD. {8} Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will he teach sinners in the way. {9} The meek{Heb=humble, lowly} will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way. {10} All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep{Heb=obey} his covenant and his testimonies. {11} For thy name's sake, O LORD, pardon mine iniquity; for it is great. {12} What man is he that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose. {13} His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed{Heb=decendents} shall inherit the earth. (Rev 7:13-17 KJV) And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? {14} And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. {15} Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. {16} They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. {17} For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them,and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
