Truth about Hope
For in this hope we were saved. But hope that is seen is no hope at all. Who hopes for what they already have?
1 Thessalonians 5:18
Give Joyful thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Don't take grudge
"You shall not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of your people, but you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the LORD.
Don't be foolish
17 A quick-tempered person does foolish things, and the one who devises evil schemes is hated.
Children in God's Kingdom
4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Be in God's Love
Keep yourselves in God's love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life.
Know who to trust
1 Thessalonians 5:6
So be on your guard, not asleep like the others. Stay alert and be clearheaded.
Belief in Christ
1 Peter 1:8
You love him even though you have never seen him. Though you do not see him now, you trust him; and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy.
Experience of God's Love
May you experience the love of Christ, though it is too great to understand fully. Then you will be made complete with all the fullness of life and power that comes from God.
Thanks be to God
1 Corinthians 15:57
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Thanksgiving to God
2 Corinthians 2:14
But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of him.
Our God overcame the world
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
It hated God First
"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first."
Follow and be saved
And all nations will hate you because you are my followers. But everyone who endures to the end will be saved.

|Do not love the worldly things|
|1 John 2:15-17|

And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.|

And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.|
