It’s About Jesus

2 Tim 3:16       Luke 8:18       Phil 2:5           2 Peter 3:18             John 6:28-29           James 2:12-13 Romans 15:4     2 John 9       Jer 9:23-24      Mark 12:29-31          1 Peter 1:13            Titus 3:3- 5

  IT IS ABOUT JESUS, AND WHAT GOD HAS DONE THROUGH HIM

Jer 9:23-24 This is what the Lord says...if people want to brag…. This kind of bragging pleases me

1 Cor 1:30-31 In Christ we are put right with God.  If people want to brag ……

Gal 6:14  The cross of our Lord Jesus Christ is my only reason for bragging. …I died to the world.

Phil 3:8-9 …I think that all things are worth nothing compared with the greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.  God uses my faith to  make me right with him.           (Romans 4:5)

Romans 4:25–  Jesus was given to die for our sins, and he was raised from the dead to make us right with God.       

Romans 5:9-10 So through Christ….  God made us his friends through the death of his Son.  Surely ….he will save us through his Son’s life.     (17-19)    (21)

1 Peter 2:24(niv)     “He himself bore our sins”       “by his wounds you have been healed.”

2 Cor 5:21- 6:1 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us,so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.     Do not let the grace that you received from God be for nothing

Eph 2:8-9 you have been saved by grace through believing.  ..not a result of your own efforts, so you cannot brag about it.

CONCERNING OUR FAITH

Mat 8:10    Jesus was amazed…this is the greatest faith I have found…

Mark 6:6   Jesus was amazed    at how many people had no faith

Mat  10:22   Jesus saying: “..but those people who keep their faith until the end will be saved.”

Heb 12:1-2  let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,   fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.

2 Cor 4:16-18  So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary,  but what is unseen is eternal.  

2 Tim 1:7-10 …God did not give a spirit that makes us afraid…. through the Good News he showed us the way to have life that cannot be destroyed.

Heb 10:22    let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings...  23  Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess...      (1 Pet 1:13)

Heb 10:35-39   So do not throw away your confidence; …You need to persevere …  you will receive what he has promised...we are not those who turn back and are lost.  We are people who have faith and are saved.         (Phlm 6)
