√ Stronger requires INTENTIONAL ACTION.
(Psalm 84:5-7 NIV) Blessed are those whose strength is in you, whose hearts are set on pilgrimage. As they pass through the Valley of Baka,(valley of Weeping) they make it a place of springs; the autumn rains also cover it with pools. They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.
(1 Corinthians 13:12 NLT) Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
(Luke 2:46-47 NLT) Three days later they finally discovered him in the Temple, sitting among the religious teachers, listening to them and asking questions. All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers.
(Luke 2:49-52 NLT) “But why did you need to search?” he asked. “Didn’t you know that I must be in my Father’s house?”
√ Strong in IDENTITY.
(Galatians 2:20 NLT) My old self has been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. So I live in this earthly body by trusting in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
(1 Peter 2:10 NLT) “Once you had no identity as a people; now you are God’s people. Once you received no mercy; now you have received God’s mercy.”
(John 11:41-43 NLT) . . . Jesus looked up to heaven and said, “Father, thank you for hearing me. You always hear me, but I said it out loud for the sake of all these people standing here, so that they will believe you sent me.” Then Jesus shouted, “Lazarus, come out!”
√ PROCLAIMED Truth.
(Luke 4:18-21 NLT) “The Spirit of the LORD is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free, and that the time of the LORD’s favor has come.” He rolled up the scroll, handed it back to the attendant, and sat down. All eyes in the synagogue looked at him intently. Then he began to speak to them. “The Scripture you’ve just heard has been fulfilled this very day!”
(Psalm 105:1 NLT) Give thanks to the LORD and proclaim his greatness. Let the whole world know what he has done.
(Luke 24:49 NLT) “And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.”
(John 14:12 NLT) “I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father.
√ Jesus understood YOU HAVE A PURPOSE!
