Listen, Believe, Receive, and Forgive

1 Peter 1: 17, 23-25

You call Him Father, when you pray to GOD.

Through the living and eternal word of GOD you have been born again as the children of a parent who is immortal, as the scripture says,

“All human beings are like grass, and all their glory are like wild flowers.

The grass withers, and the flowers fall, but the word of the LORD will remain forever.”

1 Peter 4: 6-7

Humble yourselves, then, under GOD’s mighty hand, so that He will lift you up in His own good time.

Leave all your worries with Him, because He cares for you.

Mark 11: 22-25

Jesus said, “Have faith in GOD.  I assure you that whoever tells this hill to get up and throw itself in the sea and does not have doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will happen, it will be done for him.

For this reason, I tell you: when you pray and ask for something believe that you have received it, and you will be given whatever you ask for.

And when you stand and pray, forgive anything you may have against anyone, so that the Father in heaven will forgive the wrongs you have done.”

Mark 2: 4-5, 10-12

Because of the crowd, they could not get the man to Jesus.  So they made a hole in the roof right above the place where Jesus was.  When they had made an opening, they let the man down lying on his mat.

Seeing how much faith they had, Jesus said to the paralyzed man, “My son, your sins are forgiven.”

I will prove to you, that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins.  So He said to the paralyzed man,

” I tell you, get up, pick-up your mat and go home!”

The man got up, picked up his mat, and hurried away.

The crowd were all completely amazed and praised GOD, saying, “we have never seen anything like this!”

1 Corinthians 1: 21, 25, 27-29

For GOD in His wisdom made it impossible for people to know Him by means of their own wisdom.  Instead by means of the so-called “foolish” message preached.  GOD decided to save those who believe.

For what seems GOD’s foolishness is wiser than any human wisdom, and what seems GOD’s weakness is stronger than human strength.

GOD purposely choose what the world considers nonsense in order to shame the wise, and He chose what the world considers weak in order to shame the powerful.

He chose what the world looks down on and despises and thinks is nothing, in order to destroy what the world thinks is important.

This means that no one can boast in GOD’s presence.

1 Corinthians 6: 11, 19

You have been purified from sin; you have been dedicated to GOD; you have been put right with GOD by the LORD Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our GOD.

Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by GOD.  You do not belong to yourselves but to GOD; He bought you for a price.  Use your bodies for GOD’s glory.

Psalm 111: 1-10

Praise the LORD!

With all my heart I will thank the LORD in the assembly of his people.

How wonderful are the things the LORD does!  All who are delighted with them want to understand them.

All He does is full of honor and majesty; His righteousness is eternal.

The LORD does not let us forget His wonderful actions; He is kind and merciful.

He provides food for those who honor him; He never forgets His covenant.

He has shown His power to His people by giving them the lands of foreigners.

In all he does He is faithful and just; all his commands are dependable.

They last for all time; they were given in truth and righteousness.

He set His people free and made an eternal covenant with them. Holy and mighty is He!

The way to become wise is to honor the LORD; He gives sound judgment to all who obey His commands.

He is to be praised forever.

Amen.
