The Promises Of God

 

The Blood of Jesus cleanses us from sin

     According to the Bible, we are forgiven and redeemed from our sins

through the blood of Jesus (Ephesians 1:7). His sacrifice reconciles us

to God and brings peace between us (Ephesians 2:13, Colossians

1:20). It gives us direct access to our heavenly Father without the need

of a human mediator or priest (Hebrews 10:19). The blood of Christ

allows us to be freed from a hopeless life of sin (1Peter 1:18 - 19).

     His blood makes it possible for the purging of our consciences from

the guilt of past sins so that our whole heart can be dedicated to

righteousness (Hebrews 9:14):

1. He shall save His people from their sins. Matthew 1:21

2. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins,

and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9

3. In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of

sins, according to the riches of His grace. Eph. 1:7

 

Jesus Died to give us Eternal Life

     Without the sacrifice of Christ, we would be condemned for our

sins. Once, we separated from God and cut off from Him because of

our sins. We were enemies of God, alienated from His presence and

unable to draw near to Him. God sent his son to die in our place, to

take away our sins, to bear our condemnation, so that we could be

brought near to God be children of God. Now, nothing can separate us

from Christ.

4. The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through

Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23

5. And this is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God,

and Jesus Christ whom thou has sent. John 17:36

6. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me, and

I give unto them eternal life, and they shall never perish, neither shall

any man pluck them out of my hand. John 10:27-28

7. In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before

the world began. Titus 1:2

8. God will redeem my soul from the power of the grave, for he shall

receive me. Psalm 49:15

9. And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this

life is in His Son. 1 John 5:11

 

God’s Presence is in our lives

The presence of God manifests in a unique way when believers gather

together (Matthew 18:20). We can experience the presence of God in

a way that we cannot by ourselves. God does something extraordinary

when we pray, sing, and serve together.

10. If a man love me, he will keep my words, and my Father will love

him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with Him.

John14:23

11. I am the Lord your God, and no one else, and my people shall

never be ashamed. Joel 2:27

12. The Lord God is a sun and shield, the Lord will give grace and

glory, no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.

13. We know that all things work together for good to

them who love God, to them who are called according to His purpose.

Romans 8:28

14. Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray and cry aloud, and

he shall hear my voice. Psalm 55:17 15. It shall come to pass, that

before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I will

hear. Isaiah 65:24

 

God will give us strength

The Lord will give strength to His people; the Lord will bless his people

with peace (Psalm 29:11).

16. But they will 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. Isaiah 40:31

17. That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be

strengthened with might by His Spirit in the inner man. Eph. 3:16

18. If any man will do His will, He shall know of the doctrine, whether it

be of God, or whether I speak of myself. John 7:17

 

God is Truth

Those who worship God must worship in spirit and truth.” When the

Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth, for he will not

speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and

he will declare to you the things that are to come.

19. That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may

give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of

Him. Ephesians 1:17

20. The secret things belong unto the Lord our God: but those things

which are revealed belong unto us and to our children forever, that we

may do all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29

 

God fills us with Love

God allows His love to flow into us every day through His Word: in

moments with family and friends, in comforting words from others, and

through so many other ways in which He demonstrates His love.

21. To love him with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love

his neighbor as himself, is more than all whole burnt offerings and

sacrifices. Mark 12:33

me. Proverbs 8:17

 

Our sins are forgiven

When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your

sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us our sins,

having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against

us and that stood opposed to us; he took it all, nailing it to the cross

Colossians 2:13-14.

23. For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and

their iniquities will I remember no more. Hebrews 8:12

24. And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly, and I pray God

your whole spirit and soul and body be blameless unto the coming of

our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Thessalonians 5:23

25. I write unto you, little children because your sins are forgiven you

for His name’s sake. 1 John 2:12
