John 1:1-3 AMP
[1] In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. [2] He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with God. [3] All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being.

Genesis 1:26-27 AMP
[26] Then God said, “Let Us (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) make man in Our image, according to Our likeness [not physical, but a spiritual personality and moral likeness]; and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the cattle, and over the entire earth, and over everything that creeps and crawls on the earth.” [27] So God created man in His own image, in the image and likeness of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 AMP
[11] He has made everything beautiful and appropriate in its time. He has also planted eternity [a sense of divine purpose] in the human heart [a mysterious longing which nothing under the sun can satisfy, except God]-yet man cannot find out (comprehend, grasp) what God has done (His overall plan) from the beginning to the end.

Do we Revere and Respect God as we should – as He deserves?

Do we LOVE God for who He is?

Joel 2:28-29 AMP
[28] “It shall come about after this That I shall pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and your daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. [29] “Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days.
John 14:26 AMP
[26] But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor-Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you.
John 16:7 AMP
[7] But I tell you the truth, it is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor-Counselor, Strengthener, Standby) will not come to you; but if I go, I will send Him (the Holy Spirit) to you [to be in close fellowship with you].

Christ like people need to be actively seeking and open to God’s outpouring of His Holy Spirit!

John 16:33 AMP
[33] I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have [perfect] peace. In the world you have tribulation and distress and suffering, but be courageous [be confident, be undaunted, be filled with joy]; I have overcome the world.” [My conquest is accomplished, My victory abiding.]
1 Peter 3:13-18 AMP
[13] Now who is there to hurt you if you become enthusiastic for what is good? [14] But even if you should suffer for the sake of righteousness [though it is not certain that you will], you are still blessed [happy, to be admired and favored by God]. DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THEIR INTIMIDATING THREATS, NOR BE TROUBLED or DISTURBED [by their opposition]. [15] But in your hearts set Christ apart [as holy-acknowledging Him, giving Him first place in your lives] as Lord. Always be ready to give a [logical] defense to anyone who asks you to account for the hope and confident assurance [elicited by faith] that is within you, yet [do it] with gentleness and respect. [16] And see to it that your conscience is entirely clear, so that every time you are slandered or falsely accused, those who attack or disparage your good behavior in Christ will be shamed [by their own words]. [17] For it is better that you suffer [unjustly] for doing what is right, if that should be God’s will, than [to suffer justly] for doing wrong. [18] For indeed Christ died for sins once for all, the Just and Righteous for the unjust and unrighteous [the Innocent for the guilty] so that He might bring us to God, having been put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the Spirit;

1. Christ like people need to be prepared for worldly conflict.
2. We need a Christ like attitude and answer when challenged to defend our Faith and Belief in our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ!

Matthew 7:11 AMP
If you then, evil (sinful by nature) as you are, know how to give good and advantageous gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven [perfect as He is] give what is good and advantageous to those who keep on asking Him.

Matthew 6:7-8 AMP
“And when you pray, do not use meaningless repetition as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. [8] So do not be like them [praying as they do]; for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.

1: God is the source of blessings.

2: God knows what we need.

Psalm 119:1 AMP
[1] How blessed and favored by God are those whose way is blameless [those with personal integrity, the upright, the guileless], Who walk in the law [and who are guided by the precepts and revealed will] of the LORD.

Proverbs 4:18 AMP
[18] But the path of the just (righteous) is like the light of dawn, That shines brighter and brighter until [it reaches its full strength and glory in] the perfect day.

2 Kings 23:3 AMP
[3] The king stood by the pillar and made a covenant before the LORD, to walk after the LORD and to keep His commandments, His testimonies, and His statutes with all his heart and soul, to confirm the words of this covenant that were written in this book. And all the people entered into the covenant.

Matthew 7:13-14 AMP
[13] “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad and easy to travel is the path that leads the way to destruction and eternal loss, and there are many who enter through it. [14] But small is the gate and narrow and difficult to travel is the path that leads the way to [everlasting] life, and there are few who find it.

On which path do we walk?
