The Attributes of God

The Son of Man will come with the clouds of heaven. In the presence of the Ancient of Days, He will be given dominion and glory and a kingdom, so that all peoples, nations, and men of every language will worship Him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and His kingdom is one that will never be destroyed. (Daniel 7:1314)

To the only God our Savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, majesty, dominion, and authority, before all ages and now and forever. Amen. (Jude 25)

The Works of God 

Faith comes from hearing, and hearing by the word of Christ. (Romans 10:17)

The faith of those chosen of God and the knowledge of the truth, which is according to godliness, is a faith and knowledge resting in the hope of eternal life, which God, who does not lie, promised before the beginning of time. At the appointed time, He manifested His word through the preaching entrusted to the apostles by the command of God our Savior. (Titus 1:13)

My Relationship to God

God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved me, made me alive with Christ, even when I was dead in transgressions; it is by grace I have been saved. (Ephesians 2:45)

Once I was alienated from God and was an enemy in my mind because of my evil works. But now He has reconciled me by His fleshly body through death to present me holy and blameless in His sight and free from reproach. (Colossians 1:2122)

The Character I Want to Cultivate

I will not set my heart on evil things, or be an idolater, or commit sexual immorality. (1 Corinthians 10:68)

This is the will of God, my sanctification, that I abstain from immorality and learn to possess my own vessel in sanctification and honor. For God did not call me to be impure, but to live a holy life. (1 Thessalonians 4:34, 7)

My Relationship to Others

I will not strive with a man without cause, if he has done me no harm. (Proverbs 3:30)

I will not take revenge, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written: “Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,” says the Lord. I will not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12:19, 21)
