John 14:6  I am the way, and the truth, and the life.   The only way to the Father is through  me.

John 3:13-18  … I am the One who came down from heaven…. everyone who believes can have eternal life in him.   God did not send his Son into the world to judge the world guilty,  but to save the world through him.    People who believe in God’s Son are not judged guilty..

John 5:24  I tell you the truth, whoever hears what I say and believes in the One who sent me has eternal life.  That person will not be judged guilty but has already left death and entered Life.

John 14:15  If you love me, you will obey my commands.      (Mark 12:28-31)

GIVE YOUR LIVES TO GOD

Romans 12:4-5  Each of us has a body with many parts …. we are many,  but in Christ we are all one body.  … each part belongs to all the other parts.

Romans 12:6-8  We all have different gifts… because of the grace God gave us. Use the gift God has given you!

Romans 12:11-18  Do not be lazy… serving the Lord with all your heart.  Be joyful because you have hope.  Be patient when trouble comes,  and pray at all times.    Share with God’s peoplePractice hospitality.    Bless those who persecute you….  Be happy with those who are happy, be sad with those who are sad.   Live in peace….     Do not think how smart you are.   Try to do what everyone thinks is right.   Do your best to live in peace with everyone.

Romans 12:19-21       Do not let evil defeat you,  but defeat evil by doing good.
