From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God

The Lord is the true God; He is the living God and the everlasting King. At His wrath, the earth trembles, and the nations cannot endure His indignation. (Jeremiah 10:10)

The Lord Jesus is the first and the last, and the Living One; He was dead, and behold He is alive forevermore and holds the keys of death and of Hades. (Revelation 1:17–18)

The Works of God 

God’s power toward us who believe is according to the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. (Ephesians 1:19–21)

By common confession, great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed in the flesh, vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory. (1 Timothy 3:16)

My Relationship to God

Peace You leave with me; Your peace You give to me. Not as the world gives, do You give to me. I will not let my heart be troubled nor let it be fearful. (John 14:27)

It is in You, Lord Jesus, that I have peace. In this world I will have tribulation, but I will be of good cheer, because You have overcome the world. (John 16:33)

The Character I Want to Cultivate

I will not boast about tomorrow, for I do not know what a day may bring forth. (Proverbs 27:1)

I should not say, “Today or tomorrow I will go to this or that city, spend a year there, carry on business, and make a profit.” For I do not even know what my life will be tomorrow. I am a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. Instead, I ought to say, “If the Lord wills, I will live and do this or that.” Otherwise, I boast in my arrogance, and all such boasting is evil. (James 4:13–16)

My Relationship to Others 

Wives should be submissive to their own husbands, so that even if any of them disobey the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives, when they see their purity and reverence. (1 Peter 3:1–2)

Husbands should be considerate as they live with their wives and treat them with respect as the weaker vessel and as co-heirs of the grace of life. (1 Peter 3:7)
