From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God

All Your works will praise you, O Lord, and Your saints will bless You. They will speak of the glory of Your kingdom and talk of Your power, so that all men may know of Your mighty acts and the glorious majesty of Your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and Your dominion endures through all generations. (Psalm 145:10–13)

In Your majesty, You dwell in the likeness of a throne of sapphire above the expanse that is over the cherubim. (Ezekiel 10:1)

The Works of God

The Lord by wisdom founded the earth; by understanding He established the heavens; by His knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds drop down the dew. (Proverbs 3:19–20)

You made the earth and created man upon it. Your own hands stretched out the heavens, and You ordered their starry hosts. (Isaiah 45:12)

My Relationship to God

We should not get drunk on wine, for that is dissipation. Instead, we should be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another with psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs; singing and making music in our hearts to the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 5:18–20)

I will rejoice always, pray without ceasing, and give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for me in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 5:16–18)

The Character I Want to Cultivate

Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding, for its profit is greater than that of silver, and its gain than fine gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing I desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to those who embrace her, and happy are those who hold her fast. (Proverbs 3:13–18)

He who gets wisdom loves his own soul; he who keeps understanding will find good. (Proverbs 19:8)

My Relationship to Others 

We must all attain to unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God to a mature man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, so that we will no longer be infants, being blown and carried around by every wind of doctrine, by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming; but speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in all things into Him who is the Head, that is, Christ. (Ephesians 4:13–15)

We must not forsake our meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encourage one another, and all the more as we see the day approaching. (Hebrews 10:25)
