  • Rejoice in the Lord

Rejoice in the Lord that you are eternally forgiven!

“Rejoice in the Lord always…” Philippians 4:4

  • Tell Others Also!

“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;” Psalm 107:2

  • Read the Bible and Pray

Read the Bible and Pray to the Lord EVERY DAY! BEGIN TODAY!

I have  esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food”. Job 23:12

“Thy words were found, and I did eat them, and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O Lord God of hosts.” Jeremiah 15:16

“The entrance of thy word giveth light…” Psalms 119:130

“I will therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting.”  I Timothy 2:8

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” James 5:16

  • If you do not have access to a Bible, let us know and we will get you one!
  • Establish your personal prayer list.
  • When you read the Bible, God talks to you…When you pray, you talk back to God…that process completes a two way conversation.
  • Without this continual spiritual communication and meditation, your relationship with the Lord will suffer
  • Confess Known Sin

Confess known sin after Salvation to the Lord in prayer.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” I John 1:9

“He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.” Proverbs 28:13

  • Grow in the Lord

Grow in the Lord by daily studying and obeying God’s Word!

“As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word (the Bible) that ye may grow thereby.” I Peter 2:2

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed…” 2 Timothy 2:15

“If ye love me keep my commandments.” John 14:15

“But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.” James 1:22

  • For your personal spiritual growth and faithfulness.

“Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together…” Hebrews 10:25a

  • For the encouragement of fellow believers.

“And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works!” “…but exhorting one another…” Hebrews 10:24-25

“The Lord God hath given me the tongue of the learned, that I should know how to speak a word in season to him that is weary: “ “…The Lord God hath opened mine ear, and I was not rebellious, neither turned away back.” Isaiah 50:4-5

  • Give Public Testimony of Your Salvation
  • By being publicly baptized by immersion, in identifying with the Lord’s people, as a Believer in Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, for the remission of our sins!
    Since Baptism pictures Christ’s provision in the New Birth, Believer’s Baptism is to be done after being Born Again! Acts 8:26-39
  • By telling the lost of God’s love for sinners John 3:16… Tell them what happened to you!

The healed blind man said,
“…one thing I know, that, whereas I was blind, now I see.” John 9:25

“…we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.” II Corinthians 5:20

  • Tell them about
  • Give of Your

Give of your Time, Talent, and Tithe to the Lord for His purpose and work.

“I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will mention of thy righteousness, even of thine only.” Psalm 71:16

  • Understand the Will of The Lord

Learn to Know the will of the Lord in your life. There are 3 specific lights of God’s leading!

  • The Word of God
  • The Peace of God
  • Circumstances of life

These 3 lights must line up in an orderly straight line for safe passage to the lighthouse of God’s will and way, on the rocky shore of our lives!

“Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.” Ephesians 5:17

  • Trust The Lord

To trust the Lord means…to hye or flee to God For Refuge in every situation of life!

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

  • Believe Romans 8:28 IS TRUE

God works all things in the life of the Born Again Believer together for our good and His purpose!

“And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

  • Expect Both Peace and Tribulation

Believe the Bible, Know, and Be Ready for both peace and tribulation in your life.

“These things I have spoken unto you, that I me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” John 16:33

  • Fill Your Life

Fill your life with good works.

“There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit.” Romans 8:1

“…I will that thou affirm constantly, that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works…” Titus 3:8

  • Expect The Lord To Clearly Lead You

Expect the Lord to clearly lead you in the way you should go, as you seek Him!

“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.” Psalm 32:8

“Draw nigh to God and he will draw nigh to you.” James 4:8

  • The Lord Will Fully Reward Your Reasonable Service For Him.

The Lord will fully reward your reasonable service for Him.  The Bible says much about the Believers rewards.

“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” Romans 12:1&2

The Believer’s rewards will be given for faithful service - work before God.

“According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon. For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man’s work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man’s work of what sort it is. If any man’s work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.” I Corinthians 3:10-17

The Believer’s rewards will then be given back to the Lamb of God in worship, praise, and thanksgiving to Him for saving us and providing eternal life rather than eternal damnation! 

“The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” Revelation 4:10-11

Turn in the Word of God to read Revelation 4:1-5:14

Without rewards in our hands, we as Believers will have nothing to give back to the Lord after the Rapture of the church!

Must I go, and emptied handed?
Must I meet my Saviour so?
Not one soul with which to greet Him:
Must I emptied handed go?

“Look to yourselves that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.” II John 1:8

  • Withdraw From Evil

Withdraw from association with evil. This is called Biblical Separation.

“Depart from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it”. Psalms 34:14 (1-22)

“Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? And what communion hath light with darkness?” II Corinthians 6:14

“Love not the world, neither the things, that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” I John 2:15-16)

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” Matthew 5:16

  • Look For The Soon Return Of The Lord

Look with anticipation for the soon return of the Lord in the rapture of the church!

The Lord said “Let not your heart be troubled…” John 14:1a

“…I go to prepare a place for you.” John 14:2b

“…I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there ye may be also.” John 14:3b

“…Surely, I come quickly…” Revelation 22:20a

The Apostle John prayed, “…Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20b

“Be Patient therefore, brethren unto the coming of the Lord…” James 5:7

“And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.” I John 2:28

Jesus Paid It All,
