He said, “There are more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history.

Read Romans 8:28-39. Verse 39 says, “Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Thus far we have covered: 1.God’s love is the greatest thing in the world. It is towards us and in us (Rom 5:5).

Isaiah 58:1-14 – 1“Shout with the voice of a trumpet blast. 
 Shout aloud! Don’t be timid.
 Tell my people Israel of their sins! 2 Yet they act so pious!
 They come to the Temple every day
 and seem delighted to learn all about me. 
They act like a righteous nation
 that would never abandon the laws of its God.
 They ask me to take action on their behalf,
 pretending they want to be near me. 3 ‘We have fasted before you!’ they say.
 ‘Why aren’t you impressed?

Philippians, Chapter 2:1-11 “1 If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, 2 Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. 3 Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

A man was driving home from work when his cell phone rang. His wife was on the line in a panic and said, “Honey, be careful driving. I just saw on television that some maniac is driving the wrong way on the interstate?” The man replies, “One? There’s hundreds of them!” Jesus said, “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it.

Proverbs 21:2-4 - “2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes: but the Lord pondereth the hearts. 3 To do justice and judgment is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice. 4 An high look, and a proud heart, and the plowing of the wicked, is sin.” I think we don’t realize how prideful we are.

Psalm 101 “1 I will sing of mercy and judgment: unto thee, O Lord, will I sing. 2 I will behave myself wisely in a perfect way. O when wilt thou come unto me?

I encourage you to read Romans 5:1-8. Verse 8 says, “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” The word commendeth means shows, proves, or exhibits. God proved His love, showed His love, exhibited His love; by Jesus dying for us when we were unlovely, unworthy, ungodly sinners.

Read John 8:3-11. In Verse 11 Jesus says, “Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.” We all want mercy, compassion , kindness, & forgiveness; but so often we fail to give the measure we want in return. But we see that Jesus gave it, He still gives it today.

Proverbs 18:6-8 “6 A fool’s lips enter into contention, and his mouth calleth for strokes. 7 A fool’s mouth is his destruction, and his lips are the snare of his soul. 8 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly.” Have you ever been told something about someone that you can’t get out of your mind?

Proverbs 8:12-21 “I love those who love me, and those who seek me diligently find me. Riches and honor are with me, enduring wealth and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, even fine gold, and my yield than choice silver. I walk in the way of righteousness, in the paths of justice, granting an inheritance to those who love me, and filling their treasuries.” I’ve been trying to help someone see that God has riches in store for us, and bounteous blessings and provisions for us, w ...
