Our values are built from the revelation of the true nature and identity of God.

When we know Him personally and intimately, we develop a mindset of trust in His love for us, and his eternal faithfulness towards us.

 

 

One Sacrifice for mankind

 

Hebrews 10:14 NIV

And by His one perfect sacrifice He made us perfectly holy and complete for all time!

 

1 John 2:1-2 MSG

I write this, dear children, to guide you out of sin. But if anyone does sin, we have a Priest-Friend in the presence of the Father: Jesus Christ, righteous Jesus. When he served as a sacrifice for our sins, he solved the sin problem for good—not only ours, but the whole world’s.

 

Goodness of God

 

Psalm 103:8-13 AMP

“The LORD is merciful and gracious, Slow to anger and abounding in compassion and lovingkindness. He will not always strive with us, Nor will He keep His anger forever. He has not dealt with us according to our sins [as we deserve], Nor rewarded us [with punishment] according to our wickedness. For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear and worship Him [with awe-filled respect and deepest reverence]. As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Just as a father loves his children, So the LORD loves those who fear and worship Him [with awe-filled respect and deepest reverence].”

 

Psalm 103:8-14 TPTJames 1:17-18 NIV, 2 Peter 3:9 AMP, Psalm 119:68 TPT, Romans 2:3-4 NKJV

 

Our new identity IN CHRIST

 

Galatians 2:20 TPT

My old identity has been crucified with Messiah and no longer lives; for the nails of his cross crucified me with him. And now the essence of this new life is no longer mine, for the Anointed One lives his life through me—we live in union as one! My new life is empowered by the faith of the Son of God who loves me so much that he gave himself for me, and dispenses his life into mine!

 

Ephesians 2:4-7 NLTColossians 1:27 NIV2 Timothy 1:9 TPT, 2 Timothy 2:1 TPT

Ephesians 1:13-14 NLT

 

Transformation 

We become what we behold

 

II Corinthians 3:17-18 NKJV

“Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is,

there is liberty. But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as

in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into

the same image from glory to glory, just as by

the Spirit of the Lord.”

 

Romans 12:1-2 AMP, 2 Corinthians 5:17 AMP

 

Sonship

Romans 8:14-18 TPT

"Sons and Daughters Destined for Glory.The mature children of God are only those who are moved by the impulses of the Holy Spirit. And you did not receive the “spirit of religious duty,” leading you back into the fear of never being good enough .But you have received the “Spirit of Full Acceptance,” enfolding you into the family of God. And you will never feel orphaned,

for as he rises up within us, our spirits join him in saying the

words of tender affection, “Beloved Father!” For the Holy Spirit

makes God’s fatherhood real to us as he whispers into our

innermost being, “You are God’s beloved child!” And since

we are his true children, we qualify to share all his treasures,

for indeed, we are heirs of God himself. And since we are

joined to Christ, we also inherit all that he is and all that he

has. We will experience being co-glorified with him provided

that we accept his sufferings as our own. A Glorious Destiny.

I am convinced that any suffering we endure is nothing compared

to the magnitude of glory that will soon be unveiled within us.

 

Ephesians 1:4-7 NIV

 

Love Culture

1 John 4-17-18 MSG

God is love. When we take up permanent residence in a life of love, we live in God and God lives in us.

1 Corinthians 13:1-3, 13 NLT

If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t love others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing. 3 If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it;[a] but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.

V13

Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.

 

Galatians 5:6 NIV

Joy and Celebration

We are called to be a happy people who live above

our circumstances in heavenly realms and positions.

 

Hebrews 12:22 TPT

By contrast, we have already come near to God in a

totally different realm, the Zion-realm, for we have

entered the city of the Living God, which is the New

Jerusalem in heaven! We have joined the festal

gathering of myriads of angels in their joyous celebration!

Nehemiah 8:10 MSG

Go home and prepare a feast, holiday food and drink; and share it with those who don’t have anything: This day is holy to God. Don’t feel bad. The joy of GOD is your strength!

 

 

Supernatural RELATIONSHIP .....

Living in the Spirit

Adoring, Abiding, Beholding

 

Our relationship with God is nurtured through prayer, praise & worship, thanksgiving and His Word. As we adore Him in through these expressions, His peace and presence comes to lead us into supernatural encounters with Him.

 

Spiritual gifts and callings are release in us as we find our true identity and destiny in Him.

 

Philippians 3:13-14 AMP

“Brethren, I do not imagine that I have yet laid hold of it.  But this one thing I do – forgetting everything which is past, and stretching forward to what lies in front of me, with my eyes fixed on the goal, I push on to secure the prize of God’s heavenward call in Christ Jesus.”  

 

Refiners Fire

Patience, Suffering, Endurance, Hope

 

Hebrews 10:35-36 TPT

So don’t lose your bold, courageous faith, for you are destined for a great reward!

You need the strength of endurance to reveal the poetry of God’s will and then you receive the promise in full.

2 Timothy 2:11-12 NIV1 John 2:27 AMP

Generosity

Love with action

God is extravagantly generous and our generosity is a response and reflection of Him. He is a good Father who gives good gifts to His children. We align our words with

our actions

 

James 2:14-17 TPT

My dear brothers and sisters, what good is it if someone claims to have faith but demonstrates no good works to prove it? How could this kind of faith save anyone? For example, if a brother or sister in the faith is poorly clothed and hungry and you leave them saying, “Good-bye. I hope you stay warm and have plenty to eat,” but you don’t provide them with a coat or even a cup of soup, what good is your faith? So then faith that doesn’t involve actions is phony.

 

 

Honor Affirms Value

Honor recognizes and affirms that every person is valuable and powerful. We are made in God’s image; He died to restore us to relationship with Him, therefore we are significant.
