1 Corinthians 15:10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me (KJV).  When considering the Apostle Paul’s past, the phrase, “But by...

  Proverbs 23:7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he . . . (KJV). Receiving the past tenses (grammatically speaking) found in Scripture for ourselves helps us to live in God’s present tense reality.  As long as we view them as future tense, we will struggle to be today who...

  1 Peter 2:24 Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by Whose stripes ye were healed (KJV).  We have been told that we are to live righteously (see also Titus 2:11-13), but in the process of...

Romans 8:29-32 For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the Firstborn among many brethren.  Moreover whom He did predestinate, them He also called: and whom He called, them He also justified: and whom He justified, them...

  1Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful (KJV). In the Kingdom, it is not about earning a position; it is about being faithful with the one you already have, so God is able to promote you to the next one.  The problem lies with those...
