From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God

I will regard the Lord of hosts as holy; He shall be my fear, and He shall be my dread. (Isaiah 8:13)

The Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth be silent before Him. (Habakkuk 2:20)

The Works of God

Who has measured the waters in the hollow of His hand, or marked off the heavens with the breadth of his hand? Who has calculated the dust of the earth in a measure, or weighed the mountains in the balance and the hills in scales? (Isaiah 40:12)

It is God the Lord who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and spirit to those who walk on it. (Isaiah 42:5)

My Relationship to God

My soul waits in hope for the Lord; He is my help and my shield. My heart rejoices in Him, because I trust in His holy name. (Psalm 33:20–21)

Since I am a child of God, I am an heir of God and a joint heir with Christ, if indeed I share in His sufferings in order that I may also share in His glory. For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed to me. (Romans 8:17–18)

The Character I Want to Cultivate

Since I belong to the day, I will be self-controlled, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. (1 Thessalonians 5:8)

I will prepare my mind for action and be self-controlled, setting my hope fully on the grace to be brought to me at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:13)

My Relationship to Others 

I should walk in wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of every opportunity. My speech should always be with grace, seasoned with salt, so that I may know how to answer each person. (Colossians 4:5–6)

I will sanctify Christ as Lord in my heart, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks me to give the reason for the hope that is in me, but with gentleness and respect. (1 Peter 3:15)
