Ephesians 1:3All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ.     

Psalms 103:1-2. Let all that I am praise the Lord; with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name. 2 Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.                        

Hebrews 11:31. It was by faith that Rahab the prostitute was not destroyed with the people in her city who refused to obey God. For she had given a friendly welcome to the spies.

James 2:26 Just as the body is dead without breath, so also faith is dead without good works.

Mark 10:47. When Bartimaeus heard that Jesus of Nazareth was nearby, he began to shout, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”

2 Peter 3:9. The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 

Quote from Gary Wilkerson (Son of David Wilkerson, founder of Teen Challenge) :

We live in an age of spiritual bankruptcy, moral depravity, sexual perversity, emotional immaturity, relational animosity, family break ups and government impropriety. Through it all, the church struggles with biblical illiteracy, doctrinal impurity, inadequate seriousness, inconsistent witness, frivolous preaching and an unwillingness to stand. These days are similar to those of Sodom and Gomorrah, to periods of casual apostasy and to corrupt eras that called for serious reform in the church. All the clamoring voices of wickedness and powers of darkness are culminating amid one last, desperate plot by the thief who comes to kill, steal and destroy. Yet Christ will, as always, be the victor. He will not be diminished, sidelined or silenced. His voice will resound; his power will prevail; his truth will be established, and his church will prosper. I have a great hope in the midst of a dark hour.

Joshua 2:9.  “I know the Lord has given you this land,” she told them. “We are all afraid of you. Everyone in the land is living in terror.

Joshua 3:5. Then Joshua told the people, “Purify yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do great wonders among you.”

Are we broken enough and clean enough for God to use as he wants to use us? 

Are we ready and willing to go to the next level?
