"Him we preach, warning every man and teaching every man in all wisdom, that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus." (Col 1:28)


We hope you find these verses useful in your search for God.

In order to please God, we need to know what He likes and dislikes.  And this begins with an understanding of who God is and who we are.  Below are some subjects that the Bible emphasizes as being important and that we should find important if we desire to please our Creator.


The reason for many of the problems that exist in societies, nations and in individuals of all racial backgrounds is due to ignorance or willful rejection of God’s truth.  Even people who claim to follow God fight and are at war with each other because they pray and ask God for selfish requests so they may use what they get on their own evil lusts.  Sin is disobeying God’s law and leads to consequences…the wages of sin lead to death (that is eternal death).   God provides a cure for sin, once for all through Jesus Christ.


So God has made a way for us to be free from sin.  He has given us the Son whom He loves to be the sacrifice and atonement for all sin.

"6You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man, though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die. 8But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us."--(Romans 5:6-8)

Many believe today that a person can never be free from sin, that he will always continue to be sinner.  This is human, carnal, reasoning that is not in line with the teachings of Jesus or of the Bible.  This belief is not based on true hope and is the sign of a person who is helpless, powerless and enslaved to the bondage of sin.  The Bible clearly teaches that the person who has truly come to know Christ will be free from sin, he will be holy, in thought, in word and in deed.

"24He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed."--(1 Peter 2:24)

"22But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. 23For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."--(Romans 6:22-23)

"20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me."--(Galatians 2:20)

"4Everyone who sins breaks the law; in fact, sin is lawlessness. 5But you know that he appeared so that he might take away our sins. And in him is no sin. 6No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him."--(1 John 3:4-6)


To those who repent of their sins (that is to forsake and turn away from) and who turn to God through our Lord Jesus Christ, there is forgiveness, cleansing and salvation.  This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.  “And without faith it impossible to please God.  For everyone who comes to Him must believe that He is, and that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”--(Hebrews 11:6)

  • Fight the Good Fight of Faith (not a carnal one) - Bible Study on what we are to be striving for as Christians holding fast to the Word of God, the Bible...


There is very little hope in this world.  Terrorism, wars, death and torture of many innocent women and children, homosexuality and all forms of evil are running quite rampant today.  Children killing each other, parents neglecting and polluting their children. Hardness of heart, cruelty, abuse, violence, hatred, murder, deceit, sexual perversion and corruption can be seen on a daily basis. Cultures and religions are killing one another daily in the name of God yet not loving or obeying the God they claim to serve.

Yet, I tell you friend, by the grace and mercy of God almighty and the resurrection of Jesus Christ--the risen savior--there is hope in this world for all who will choose to follow the will of God.  We have this promise, that God will be our God and we will be His people if...yes, there is a condition....

"14Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15What harmony is there between Christ and Belial [wicked/worthless one - Satan]? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols? For we are the temple of the living God. As God has said: "I will live with them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they will be my people."
    17"Therefore come out from them
       and be separate, says the Lord.
   Touch no unclean thing,
       and I will receive you."
    18"I will be a Father to you,
       and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty."--(2 Corinthians 6:14-18)

And God wants us to have peace...first to the Jews and then to the rest of the world.  God chose the Jewish race because of the faith of Abraham and God's desire to make a name for Himself in the earth.

"2Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 3as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust."--(2 Peter 1:2-4)

And our hope and faith will purify us...

Everyone who has this hope (that Jesus will return in righteousness and holiness), purifies himself just as He is pure.--(1 John 3:2-3)


Love is not a feeling.  Love is not simply an emotion.  Love is not accurately defined in the light of sexual attraction.  True love is an unwavering commitment, displayed by the demonstration (or fruit) of one's life that springs from heartfelt gratitude.

God is love.  The one who lives in God lives in love.--(1 John 4:6)

“And this is love for God, to obey His commands”--(1 John 5:3)

"We love, because He first loved us."--(1 John 4:19)


The grace of God is not just "unmerited favor".  That may be more accurate to refer to as God's mercy.

God's grace has to do with the power and anointing that He gives to us in order to make us strong and equipped to stand firm in what things He prepares in advance for us to do (Eph 2:10)

For the grace of God which brings salvation has appeared to all men; teaching us to deny ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age; while we wait for the blessed hope, the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself his own peculiar people, zealous to do what is good.--(Titus 2:11-14)


The Bible is at least 2000 years old, yet it continues to uphold the same truths throughout the centuries.  It has been fought against by many foes yet continues to endure.  It contains amazing descriptions of science; history; faith; theology; analysis of the heart, mind and conscience and godly living that continues to prove itself in our rapidly advancing information age.  Many people read the Bible looking for flaws, excuses or contradictions.  They do what many have done over the years, "twist the Scriptures to their own destruction".  It is foolish to try and twist God's word for your own advantage.  Some read the Bible trying to justify sin in their life.  Others read the bible and try to condone sodomy or any other wicked thing.  God never changes, Jesus doesn't change either (He remains our High priest forever to mediate for us at the right hand of God Almighty).  In fact "the Word of the Lord will endure forever".  "For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do [give an account]. Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."--(Hebrews 4:12-16 KJV)

May you fall on the firmly grounded rock of Jesus who is the Christ/Messiah and humble yourself before the only true Almighty God who sent His son to be the King of kings and Lord of lords.   He is the best master, the closest friend, our redeemer, our teacher and our guide.


Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor [hate] what is evil. Cling to what is good.
(Rom 12:9)

"Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.”
(John 6:27)

 "Be perfect therefore, even as your Father in heaven is perfect."
(Matthew 5:48)

"Come back to your senses as you ought, and stop sinning; for there are some who are ignorant of God--I say this to your shame."
(1 Corinthians 15:34)

"But the path of the just is like the shining sun, that shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
 The way of the wicked is like darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble."
(Prov 4:18-19)

"You see that a person is justified by what he does and not by faith alone."
(James 2:24)

"Therefore, my brothers, be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.."
(2 Peter 1:10-11)


Grace to all of you who love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity and truth--Ephesians 6:24 * 2009 *
