James 5:7-11   …be patient;   strengthen your hearts… Do not give up hope…  do not complain or you will be JUDGED GUILTY.

James 5:12  …ABOVE ALL,  When you mean yes, say only yes, and when you mean no, say only no so you will not be JUDGED GUILTY.

Col 3:9-10  Do not lie to each other….  You have begun to live the new life, in which… you are becoming like the One who made you.   This new life brings you the true knowledge of God.

1 Peter 3:10-12 The Scripture says, “A person must do these things to enjoy life and have many happy days….. The Lord sees the good people and listens to their prayers.

Remember what Solomon (the wisest man ever) taught:

Ecc 7:14-25  When life is good, enjoy it. .. when life is hard, remember, God gives good times and hard times,… no one knows what tomorrow will bring.    Don’t be too right, and don’t be too wise. …there is not a good person on earth who always does good and never sins. I can’t understand why things are as they are.  It is too hard for anyone to understand.

Ecc 9:7-10  So go eat your food and enjoy it; drink your wine and be happy,  because that is what God wants you to do.  Enjoy life with the wife you love. .. because it is all you have.   Enjoy the work you do here on earth… do your best.

Romans 12:12   Be joyful because you have hope.  Be patient when trouble comes, and pray at all times.

1 Peter 3:15 … respect Christ as the holy Lord in your hearts.  Always be ready to answer everyone who asks you to explain about the hope you have..

2 Thes 2:13-17 …God chose you from the beginning to be saved.  You are saved by the Spirit that makes you holy and by your faith in the truth.  ….stand strong and continue to believe the teachings…  God loved us, and through his grace he gave us a good hope and encouragement that continues forever.

Phil 2:12-15 … Keep on working to complete your salvation with fear and trembling,  because God is working in you to help you want to do and be able to do what pleases him. Do everything without complaining or arguing.  Then you will be innocent and without any wrong.  You will be God’s children without fault.

Col 1:22 . so that he might bring you into God’s presence … with no wrong, and with nothing of which God can judge you guilty. 23  THIS WILL HAPPEN IF you continue strong and sure in your faith.
