TRUE TEACHING:  Grace is about God’s love for us

1 John 4:9-10 … This is love:  not that we loved God,  but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.

Romans 7:6  So now we serve God in a new way with the Spirit, and not in the old way with written rules.     

Gal 3:11-14   Those who are right with God will live by faith.  13  He changed places with us… Jesus died so that by our believing we could receive the Spirit that God promised.

2 Thes 2:13-17  You are saved by the Spirit that makes you holy and by your faith in the truth.  God loved us, and through his grace he gave us a good hope and encouragement …

Heb 11:1    Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Eph 3:12  In Christ we can come before God with freedom and without fear.  We can do this through faith in Christ.

1 Peter 5:6-12  Give all your worries to him, because he cares about you. … He called you to share in his glory in Christ,  a  glory that will continue forever.

1 Thes 5:7   God did not choose us to suffer his anger but to have salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ

John 8:31-32 If you continue to obey my teaching, you are truly my followers.  Then you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.

John 14:21 Those who know my commands and obey them are the ones who love me…. 23  If people love me, they will obey my teaching. 

1 John 5:3-5  ,  9, 11-13  Loving God means obeying his commands.   Whoever has the Son has life

2 John 9  Anyone who goes beyond Christ’s teaching and does not continue to follow only his teaching does not have God….        (Luke 8:18)

Gal 5:1-9 Who stopped you from following the true way?  This change did not come from the One who chose you.  … Be careful!  “Just a little yeast makes the whole batch of dough rise.”

Heb 13:8-9 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Do not let all kinds of strange teachings lead you into the wrong way.  Your hearts should be strengthened by God’s grace….

2 Peter 3:17-18 ...Be careful so you will not fall from your strong faith.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord….
