Matthew 7:7 Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you
Things We Know that challenge us to Dare Something Great for Jesus
Romans 8: 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
1 Corintians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. 19This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. 20Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. 21But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.
“And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.” (1 Peter 5:4)
It does a Christian good to remember Scripture we can know, things we can count on, and do not change. Following is such truths.
Christ is God: “I and my Father are one” (John 10:30).
We can know that we are saved: “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47).
We can know we are His dear children: “Beloved, now are we the sons of God” (1 John 3:2).
We can know His protection: “And they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand” (John 10:28).
We can know He answers prayer: “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it” (John 14:14).
We can know He will help us through temptation: “In that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted” (Hebrews 2:18).
We can know how we should act: “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done” (John 13:15).
We can know He desires us to speak on His behalf: “Be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you” (1 Peter 3:15).
We can know that He will come again: “I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3).
We can know of our eternal rewards, as in today’s verse: “An inheritance incorruptible, and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you” (1 Peter 1:4)
