Truth From A to Z ~ G is for…

Hello Thursday and time for the letter G. Looking forward to the verse or verses you will come up with to share today. It’s still October and we still are in the good season of having family in our midst so bear with me if I’m slow in adding your verses. Thank you very much.

G is for Glorify, Given, Give, God, Glorified and Glory!

John 17: 1-5 (ESV)

When Jesus had spoken these words, he lifted his eyes to heaven, and said, “Father, the hour has come; glorify your Son that the Son may glorify you, since you have given him authority over all flesh, to give eternal life to all whom you have given him. And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent. I glorified you on earth, having accomplished the work that you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your own presence with the glory that I had with you before the world existed.

From Maristella: G is for GIFT:
“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9
And…
“If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.”
1 Corinthians 13:2

From Gloria: G is for Gracious & Great
The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and great in loving kindness.
Psalm 145:8

From Vera: G is for Grace

“Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Here is the link to Bethany’s post for the letter G.

Faith

Well, here we are at the very last day of August and the last day of our challenge. Our word today is Faith. There are many verses to choose from on Faith/Faithful/Faithfulness. Thank you to everyone who followed this journey and posted verses. It was really hard to choose just one passage on faith, let alone one verse.

Hebrews 10:35 – 11:3 (ESV)

Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God you may receive what is promised. For,

“Yet a little while, and the coming one will come and will not delay; but my righteous one shall live by faith, and if he shrinks back, my soul has no pleasure in him.”

But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and preserve their souls. Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. For by it the people of old received their commendation. By faith we understand that the universe was created by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things that are visible.

From Paul:

Hebrews 11:4: By faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sacrifice than Cain, through which he was commended as righteous, God commending him by accepting his gifts. And through his faith though he died, he still speaks.

From Maristella:

“If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
1 Corinthians 13:2 | NIV

From my sister Vera:

“in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭6:16‬ ‭NASB‬‬

From Happy One:

Romans 12:3 KJV
 
For I say, through the grace given unto me, 
to every man that is among you, 
not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; 
but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of FAITH.
