Colossians 1:10 10 And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God,
1 Thessalonians 1:3 3 We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.
- In Faith, Abide in the Vine!
John 15:4-5 4 Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me. 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
Ephesians 2:8 8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–
Personal Private Responsibility
- In Love, Connect by serving others!
1 Peter 4:10 10 Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms… Romans 12:11 11 Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord… Ephesians 6:7 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men… Galatians 5:13 13 “… serve one another in love.”
Church Ministry Involvement
- In Hope, Touch lives eternally for Jesus!
1 Corinthians 15:58 58 Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
Colossians 1:4-5 4 because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all the saints— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope that is stored up for you in heaven and that you have already heard about in the word of truth, the gospel
