I was dead. But now I am alive forever!

"The God of our forefathers raised up Jesus, Whom you killed by hanging Him on a tree (cross).  God exalted Him to His right hand to be Prince and Leader and Savior and Deliverer and Preserver, in order to grant repentance to Israel and to bestow forgiveness and release from sins.

And we are witnesses of these things, and the Holy Spirit is also, Whom God has bestowed on those who obey Him."   (Acts 5:30-32 AMP)

“Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
To receive power and riches and wisdom,
And strength and honor and glory and blessing!”  (Revelation 5:12 NKJV)

Do not neglect prayer and word of God.

"So the Twelve called a meeting of all the believers. They said, “We apostles should spend our time teaching the word of God, not running a food program.

And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility.  Then we apostles can spend our time in prayer and teaching the word.”
(Acts 6:2-4 NLT)

The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom should I fear?

If God is with you, it is accomplished.

“Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men."   (Acts 5:35 NIV)

"So I am telling you: Hands off these men! Let them alone. If this program or this work is merely human, it will fall apart, but if it is of God, there is nothing you can do about it—and you better not be found fighting against God!"
(Acts 5:38 MSG)

"Everyone will hate you because of me.  But not a hair of your head will perish."   (Luke 21:17-18 NIV)

Are you the faithful and prudent steward?

"Who here qualifies for the job of overseeing the kitchen? A person the Master can depend on to feed the workers on time each day. Someone the Master can drop in on unannounced and always find him doing his job. A God-blessed man or woman, I tell you. It won't be long before the Master will put this person in charge of the whole operation."   (Matt 24:45 MSG)

"The Lord answered, “Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time?"
(Luke 12:42 NIV)

Taste and see how good the Lord is; blessed the man who takes refuge in Him.

"For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life."

"For God did not send the Son into the world in order to judge (to reject, to condemn, to pass sentence on) the world, but that the world might find salvation and be made safe and sound through Him."   (John 3:16-17 AMP)

"Go into all the world and proclaim the Gospel.  I am with you always, says the Lord, alleluia."  (Mark 16: 15; Matthew 28: 20 RM)

Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.
