Things we should know

We were all handed four small cards on Sunday, with four truths about God and our relationship with God.  They all had a verse from the bible associated with it printed on the back, so I thought I’d share them with you.

I am loved by God

“but God shows His love for us
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:8

God is good

“Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good …”
Psalm 136:1

I belong to God

“Yet to all who did receive Him,
to those who believed in His name,
He gave the right to become children of God.”
John 1:12

I have peace with God

“…we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Romans 5:1

We are encouraged to use these in reflection, and prayer, and they fitted in very nicely with the reading from Psalm 118 verses 19-24

19 Open for me the gates of the righteous;
    I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
20 This is the gate of the Lord
    through which the righteous may enter.
21 I will give you thanks, for you answered me;
    you have become my salvation.

22 The stone the builders rejected
    has become the cornerstone;
23 the Lord has done this,
    and it is marvellous in our eyes.
24 The Lord has done it this very day;
    let us rejoice today and be glad.
