In our faith we follow in someone’s steps.  In our faith we have footprints to guide others.  It’s the principle of discipleship.

From 1 Timothy 4:12:  “Be an example to the believers in Word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.”

Earthly fears are no fears at all.  Answer the big question of eternity, and the little questions of life fall into perspective.

From 1 Corinthians 4:6:  “I have applied all this to Apollos and myself for your benefit, brothers and sisters, so that you may learn through us the meaning of the saying, ‘Nothing beyond what is written,’ so that none of you will be puffed up in favor of one against another.”

When I am criticized, injured, or afraid, there is a Father who is ready to comfort me.

From Psalm 86:17:  “Show me a sign of your favor, so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame, because you, Lord, have helped me and comforted me.”

God’s help is always available, but it is only given to those who seek it.

From Matthew 7:7:  “Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you.”

There are times when to speak is to violate the moment–when silence represents the highest respect.  The word for such times is reverence.

From Psalm 46:10:  “Be still, and know that I am God!  I am exalted in the earth.”

What makes a Christian a Christian is not perfection but forgiveness.

From Matthew 18:21-22:  “Then Peter came and said to Him, ‘Lord, if another member of the church sins against me, how often should I forgive?  As many as seven times?’  Jesus said to him, “Not seven times, but I tell you, seventy times seven.'”

God doesn’t camouflage the old; He restores the new. the Master Builder will pull out the original plan and restore it. He will restore the vigor. He will restore the energy. He will restore the hope. He will restore the soul.

From Philippians 2:12-13: “Therefore, my beloved, just as you have always obeyed me, not only in my presence, but much more now in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, enabling you both to will and to work for his good pleasure.”
