Jesus Is The Way-Follow Him. John 14:6-7
Autumn Days of New Opportunities
Steps to a NEW LIFE IN CHRIST
Step 1: SEEK GOD & HIS WAY
Seek first the Kingdom of God
and His Righteousness,
and all these things will be given
to you as well.
Step 2: KNOW GOD, KNOW LOVE
let us Love one another,
for LOVE COMES FROM GOD.
Everyone who loves
has been born of God and knows God.
Whoever does not LOVE
does not know God, because
GOD IS LOVE.
This is how
GOD SHOWED HIS LOVE AMONG US:
HE SENT HIS ONE AND ONLY SON
into the world
that we may live through Him.
THIS IS LOVE:
not that we loved God,
but that He loves us and sent His Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
since GOD SO LOVED US
we also ought to
LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
No one has ever seen God;
but if we love one another,
God lives in us
and HIS LOVE is made complete in us.
We know that we LIVE IN HIM
and He in us,
because He has given us His Spirit.
And we have seen and
TESTIFY THAT THE FATHER
HAS SENT HIS SON
TO BE THE SAVIOR
OF THE WORLD.
If anyone acknowledges that
JESUS IS THE SON OF GOD,
God lives in him and he in God.
And so we know and rely on
THE LOVE GOD HAS FOR US.
GOD IS LOVE.
Whoever LIVEs IN LOVE
lives in God, and God in him.
In this WAY,
LOVE IS MADE COMPLETE
so that we will have confidence
on the day of judgement,
because in this world we are like Him.
There is NO FEAR IN LOVE.
PERFECT LOVE DRIVES OUT FEAR,
because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect
We Love because HE FIRST LOVED US.
If anyone says, "I love God,"
yet hates his brother, he is a liar.
For anyone who does not LOVE
his brother, whom he has seen,
cannot LOVE GOD,
whom he has not seen.
And HE HAS GIVEN US THIS COMMAND:
WHOEVER LOVES GOD
MUST LOVE HIS BROTHER.
Step 3: BELIEVE IN JESUS,
THE SON of GOD
"I Am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
No one comes to the Father except through Me.
When JESUS SPOKE again to the people He said,
"I AM THE LIGHT of the world.
Whoever FOLLOWS ME
WILL NEVER WALK IN DARKNESS,
but WILL HAVE THE LIGHT of LIFE.
Step 4: LOVE GOD ABOVE ALL
" 'Love the Lord your God
with all your heart and with all your soul
and with all your mind.
This is the first and greatest commandment.
And the second is like it:
'Love your neighbor as yourself.'
All the Law and the Prophets
hang on these two commandments."
OBEY THE TEACHING OF JESUS CHRIST
"If anyone loves Me,
he will obey my teaching.
My Father will love him,
and we will make Our home with him.
He who does not love Me
will not obey My teaching.
These Words are not My own;
they belong to The Father
who sent Me.
All of this I have spoken while still with you.
But The Counselor, The Holy Spirit,
whom the Father will send in My Name,
will teach you all things
and will remind you
of everything I have said to you.
Peace I leave you;
My Peace I give you.
I do not give as the world gives.
Do not let your hearts be troubled
and do not be afraid.
Step 6: TURN FROM SIN &
LIVE A NEW LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS
So, I tell you this,
and insist on it in the Lord,
that you must no longer live as the Gentiles do,
in the futility of their thinking.
They are darkened in their understanding
and separated from the Life of God
because of the ignorance that is in them
due to the hardening of their hearts.
Having lost all sensitivity,
they have given themselves over to sensuality
so as to indulge in every kind of impurity,
with a continual lust for more.
You, however, did not come to know
Christ that way.
Surely you heard of Him
and we're taught in Him in accordance
with The Truth that is in Jesus.
You were taught
with regard to your former way of life,
to put off your old self,
which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires;
to Be Made New in the Attitudes of your minds;
and to Put on the New Self,
Created to be like God
in True Righteousness and Holiness.
Step 7: BE STRONG IN THE LORD
BE CLOTHED IN GOD'S ARMOR
Finally, be strong in the Lord
and in His Mighty Power.
Put on the full armor of God
so that you can take your stand
against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavenly realms.
Therefore, put on the full armor of God,
so that when the day of evil comes,
you may be able to stand your ground,
and after you have done everything,
Stand firm then,
with the Belt of Truth buckled around your waist,
with the Breastplate of Righteousness in place,
and with your feet fitted with the readiness
that comes from The Gospel of Peace.
In addition to all this,
take up The Shield of Faith,
with which you can extinguish
all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Take The Helmet of Salvation
and The Sword of The Spirit,
which is The Word of God.
And Pray in The Spirit on all occasions
with all kinds of prayers and requests.
With this in mind,
be alert and Always Keep on Praying
for all the Saints.
Pray also for me,
that whenever I open my mouth,
words may be given to me
so that I may fearlessly make known
the mystery of The Gospel,
for which I am an ambassador in chains.
Pray that I may declare it fearlessly,
as I should.
Peace to the brothers,
and Love with Faith from God the Father
and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Grace to all
who Love our Lord Jesus Christ
with an undying Love.
