From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God

The Lord is upright; He is my Rock, and there is no unrighteousness in Him. (Psalm 92:15)

O Lord of hosts, You judge righteously and test the heart and mind; to You I have committed my cause. (Jeremiah 11:20)

The Works of God 

Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. They will rest from their labor, for their works will follow them. (Revelation 14:13)

There will be a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth will pass away, and there will no longer be any sea. (Revelation 21:1)

My Relationship to God 

Your grace is sufficient for me, for Your power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore, I can be content in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:910)

Since I have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, I will hold firmly to the faith I confess. For I do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with my weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in every way, just as I am, yet without sin. Therefore, I will approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that I may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need. (Hebrews 4:1416)

The Character I Want to Cultivate

Better is open rebuke than love that is concealed. (Proverbs 27:5)

Faithful are the wounds of a friend, but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful. (Proverbs 27:6)

My Relationship to Others 

I will put away all bitterness and anger and wrath and shouting and slander, along with all malice. And I will be kind and compassionate to others, forgiving them just as God in Christ also forgave me. (Ephesians 4:3132)

I will not slander other believers. Anyone who slanders his brother or judges his brother slanders the law and judges the law. When I judge the law, I am not a doer of the law, but a judge. There is only one Lawgiver and Judge, the One who is able to save and to destroy. Who am I to judge my neighbor? (James 4:1112)
