God never gave man a religion, but an opportunity for an intimate relationship with his Creator. May we come to know His presence and power in each of our lives.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. John 3:16-17
If any of you wants to be My follower, you must put aside your selfish ambition, shoulder your cross, and follow Me. -Matthew 16.24
Thus says the Lord: "Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might,
Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight," says the Lord. -- Jer 9:23-24
Then he said to Him,"If Your Presence does not go with us, do not bring us up from here. For how then will it be known that Your people and I have found grace in Your sight, except You go with us? So we shall be separate, Your people and I, from all the people who are upon the face of the earth." -- Ex 33:15-16
