TREASURES FROM GODS WORD 

 

Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:6-7)

No care but all prayer. No anxiety but much joyful communion with God. Carry your desires to the Lord of your life, the guardian of your soul. Go to Him with two portions of prayer and one of fragrant praise. Do not pray doubtfully but thankfully. Consider that you have your petitions, and therefore thank God for His grace. He is giving you grace; give Him thanks, Hide nothing. Allow no want to lie rankling in your bosom; "make known your requests." Run not to man. Go only to your God, the Father of Jesus, who loves you in Him.
This shall bring you God's own peace. You shall not be able to understand the peace which you shall enjoy. It will enfold you in its infinite embrace. Heart and mind through Christ Jesus shall be steeped in a sea of rest. Come life or death, poverty, pain, slander, you shall dwell in Jesus above every rolling wind or darkening cloud. Will you not obey this dear command?
Yes, Lord, I do believe thee; but, I beseech thee, help mine unbelief.

  
 
DAILY PROMISE 


For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. (Romans 8:29-30)

God chose those who would believe from the foundations of the world to be justified and glorified according to His purpose. Because God foreknew all things, there is nothing that can separate His children from His excellent love and grace. Even as evil powers come against us, we are made conquerors by the justification and glorification through the blood of Christ!

 GODS PLAN OF SALVATION

 

There is only one way to heaven

JESUS said: "I am the way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father but by Me.  (john 14:6) 

 

Good works cannot save you.

"for by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast." (ephesians 2:8-9)  

trust jesus christ today! here's what you must do:

  1. confess to God that you are a sinner, in need of a Savior.

"for all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;" (romans 3:23)   

"wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:" (romans 5:12) 

"if we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us." (1 john 1:10)  

 

2         Believe that Jesus Christ died for you, was buried, and rose from the dead

"for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (john 3:16)

"but God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners. Christ died for us." (romans 5:8) 

"that if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." (romans 10:9)  

 

Through prayer, invite Jesus into your life to become your personal saviour.

"for with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation." (romans 10:10)  

 

3     Turn from sin and repent

Jesus said: "i tell you, nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish." (luke 13:5)  

"and the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent:" (acts 17:30)  

"for whosoever shall call upon the name of the lord shall be saved."  (romans 10:13)   

"but as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" (john 1:12) 

"therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." (2 corinthians 5:17)


if you have received jesus christ as your saviour, as a christian you should:

  1. Read your bible every day to get to know Christ better.

"study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." (2 timothy 2:15)  

"thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path." (psalms 119:105) 

 
  1. Talk to God in prayer every day.

"and all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive." (matthew 21:22)  

"be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God." (philippians 4:6)  

 
  1. Be baptized, worship, fellowship, and serve with other christians in a church where Christ is preached and the bible is the final authority.

"go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" (matthew 28:19)  

"not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching."
  (hebrews 10:25)    

"all scripture is given by inspiration of god, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" (2 timothy 3:16)  

 
  1. Tell others about Christ.

"and he said unto them, go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." (mark 16:15)    

"for though i preach the gospel, i have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if i preach not the gospel!" (1 corinthians 9:16)  

"for i am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the jew first, and also to the greek." (romans 1:16)
