From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God

There is no one holy like the Lord; there is no one besides You; nor is there any Rock like our God. (1 Samuel 2:2)

There is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom I live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom I live. (1 Corinthians 8:6)

The Works of God 

God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. (John 3:1617)

The Lord said, “I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not stay in darkness. And if anyone hears My words but does not keep them, I do not judge him; for I did not come to judge the world, but to save the world.” (John 12:4647)

My Relationship to God 

Lord Jesus, You are in Your Father, and I am in You, and You are in me. (John 14:20)

If I have been united with Christ in the likeness of His death, I will certainly also be united with Him in the likeness of His resurrection. (Romans 6:5)

The Character I Want to Cultivate 

When pride comes, then comes dishonor, but with humility comes wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2)

The proud looks of man will be humbled, and the loftiness of men brought low; the Lord alone will be exalted. (Isaiah 2:11)

My Relationship to Others

Is this not the fast You have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the cords of the yoke, and to let the oppressed go free and break every yoke? Is it not to share our food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter; when we see the naked, to clothe him, and not to turn away from our own flesh? Then our light will break forth like the dawn, and our healing will quickly appear, and our righteousness will go before us; the glory of the Lord will be our rear guard. Then we will call, and the Lord will answer; we will cry, and He will say, “Here I am.” If we put away the yoke from our midst, the pointing of the finger and malicious talk, and if we extend our souls to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then our light will rise in the darkness, and our gloom will become like the noonday. (Isaiah 58:610)

I must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:35)
