This comes from Ephesians

__:__-__Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

*It sure is good that God does not always give us what we want; but He always gives us something better than what we want. Paul wanted to go preach in Bithynia, and into Asia, but the Holy Spirit would not let him, (Acts 16:6-10). Then God opened up the preaching of the Gospel in Europe, because He was using Paul to supernaturally build His church. There are always things that we think we want, but if we really had them, we would find out they would be nothing but a curse to us and God knows that and He protects us from it.  

Weekly Scripture 2-11-2023

Answer: 1 john 1:7

What book and where does this come from? _____________________

__:__But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

*Scripture uses the term “walk” to describe the course of a person's life. Here are some other places where that term is used, Gen. 5:22, 5:24, 6:9. In the verse above look carefully and see that the verse says, “walk in the light" to explain what is expected of those who are going to follow Jesus. Walking with the Lord in His Light, we need to confess our sin and forsake our sin, pursue righteousness, and obey Him. I am sure that is not very popular to say in the culture of our day, but God said it and it does not matter what time or culture or place you are in the principle still applies. But, nobody that walks in darkness can experience fellowship with God. As Christians we are not trying to condemn someone when we witness to them about our relationship to God. On the contrary, we desire them to forsake sin and accept Jesus as Savior so that the person can have a relationship with the One True Living God! Also, for those already in Christ; the attitudes, habits, and conduct that were ours before we came to know Jesus must be abandoned in order for us to walk with God.
