Follow Christ's Example (1 Peter 2:19-21)

"A person might have to suffer even when it is unfair, but if he thinks of God and stands the pain, God is pleased. If you are beaten for doing wrong, there is no reason to praise you for being patient in your punishment. But if you suffer for doing good, and you are patient, then God is pleased. This is what you were called to do, because Christ suffered for you and gave you an example to follow. So you should do as he did." 1 Peter 2:19-21 www.Acknowledgement.com

Thanksgiving for the King (Psalm 21:1-13)

Lord, the king rejoices because of your strength; he is so happy when you save him! You gave the king what he wanted and did not refuse what he asked for. You put good things before him and place a gold crown on his head. He asked you for life, and you gave it to him, so his years go on and on. He has great glory because you gave him victories; you gave him honor and praise. You always gave him blessings; you made him glad because you were with him. The king truly trust the Lord. Because God Most High always love him, he will not be overwhelmed. Your hand is against all your enemies; those who hate you will feel your power. When you appear, you will burn them up. You will destroy their families from the earth; their children will not live. They made evil plans against you, but their traps won't work. You will make them turn their backs when you aim your arrows at them. Be supreme, Lord, in your power. We sing and praise your greatness. Psalm 21:1-13 www.Acknowledgement.com

Micah 4:2

Many nations will come and say, "Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the Temple of the God of Jacob, so that he can us his ways, and we can obey his teachings." His teachings will go out from Jerusalem, the word of the LORD from that city. Micah 4:2 www.Acknowledgement.com

A Prayer for Help (Psalm 54:1-7)

"God, save me because of who you are. By your strength show that I am innocent.

Hear my prayer, God; listen to what I say.

Strangers turn against me, and cruel men want to kill me. They do not care about God.

See, God will help me; the Lord will support me.

Let my enemies be punished with their own evil. Destroy them because you are loyal to me.

I will offer a sacrifice as a special gift to you. I will thank you, LORD, because you are good.

You have saved me from all my troubles, and I have seen my enemies defeated." Psalm 54:1-7 www.Acknowledgement.com

You are Accepted!

"After a long debate, Peter stood up and said to them, "Brothers, you know that in the early days God chose me from among you to preach the Good News to those who are not Jewish. They heard the Good News from me, and they believed. God, who knows the thoughts of everyone, accepted them. He showed this to us by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us. To God, those people are not different from us. To God, those people are not different from us. When they believed, he made their hearts pure." Acts 15:7-9

"Christ accepted you, so you should accept each other, which will bring glory to God." Romans 15:7

"Because of his love, God had already decided to make us his own children through Jesus Christ. That was what he wanted and what pleased him, and it brings praise to God because of his wonderful grace. God gave that grace to us freely, in Christ, the One he loves." Ephesians 1:5-6 www.Acknowledgement.com

Righteousness Through Faith (Romans 3:21-26)

But now a righteousness from God, apart from Law, has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented him as a sacrifice of atonement, through faith in his blood. He did this to demonstrate his justice, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished he did it to demonstrate his justice at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those have faith in Jesus. Romans 3:21-26

Romans 12:9-10

"Your love must be real. Hate what is evil, and hold on to what is good. Love each other like brothers and sisters. Give each other more honor than you want for yourselves." Romans 12:9-10

Mark 13:22-23

"False Christs and false prophets will come and perform great wonders and miracles. They will try to fool even the people God has chosen, if that is possible. So be careful. I have warned you about all this before it happens." Mark 13:22-23
