Daily Scripture: Year 2, Day 56

From Handbook to Renewal

The Attributes of God 

The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble; He knows those who trust in Him. (Nahum 1:7)

God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. (1 John 1:5)

The Works of God 

Jesus did not ask that the Father should take us out of the world, but that He protect us from the evil one. He prayed, “Father, I desire those You have given Me to be with Me where I am, that they may behold My glory, the glory You have given Me because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.” (John 17:15, 24)

The Lord told the apostles, “You will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you; and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8)

My Relationship to God 

Since I have been justified by Christ’s blood, much more shall I be saved from God’s wrath through Him. For if, when I was God’s enemy, I was reconciled to Him through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, shall I be saved through His life. And not only this, but I also rejoice in God through my Lord Jesus Christ, through whom I have now received the reconciliation. (Romans 5:911)

God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for me, so that in Him I might become the righteousness of God. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

The Character I Want to Cultivate

I do not want to justify myself in the eyes of men; God knows our hearts, and what is highly esteemed among men is detestable in the sight of God. (Luke 16:15)

I do not want to love praise from men more than praise from God. (John 12:43)

My Relationship to Others 

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.” This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments. (Matthew 22:3740)

This is God’s commandment: that we believe in the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, and love one another as He commanded us. (1 John 3:23)
