Identity

For we are God’s masterpiece, created to do good works which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10

Think about that for a moment. We are God’s work of art. He created every detail in our lives to the way we look to our personalities. When our Father looks at us, he sees beauty, greatness and righteousness.

Gratitude

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18

When the posture of our heart is to rejoice, pray and thank God for everything He is doing in our lives, transformation happens. We begin to cultivate a heart full of thankfulness, even in circumstances that we may not understand.

Worship

My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long. Psalm 71:8

This is how we fight our battles. When we worship, we are allowing ourselves to be renewed and refreshed. Worship get the focus off ourselves and back on God. Praise reminds us of what God has already done in our lives and what He has promised to do.

Faith

He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20-21

When we read all through the Gospels we see how Jesus loved and responded to anyone that had faith. He loved it. He loved it when those placed their full trust in Him. When we place our full trust in Him and walk by faith, He can move mountains.

Grace

For it 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

There are no amount of good deeds or good works we can do to merit the favor of God. Because of His amazing Grace, God chose to cancel our sin by sacrificing His perfect Son in our place. He offers us forgiveness and reconciliation with Him by believing in His perfect sacrifice. Grace is God giving the greatest treasure to the least deserving- which is every one of us.
