Scripture Jewels practical help from God’s Word to bring God’s dynamic life into our own lives!
Scripture jewels offers practical helps on receiving and giving out God’s love. The goal is loving God, loving others and helping others to willingly and naturally love God. To get to this goal a relationship is necessary. To start this relationship, a person must invite Jesus Christ to come into their heart as Lord and Savior. Then this person must know and then believe all that happened when Christ came in. For instance, this person is now complete and is qualified for all the promises of God based on what Christ did. Then the final phase is walking out life in Christ, with a total awareness of Christ within. This is not a Christ robot, but a person walking in relationship with Christ with their own unique personality. God designed uniqueness and desires variety in each of us.
For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. 2 Peter 1:4 (NASB).

HIM WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.” This precious

There are all kinds of gems in the Bible and the same Bible truth often has many sparkling facets that apply to it.
This is what the LORD says: 'I will go before you, Cyrus, and level the mountains. I will smash down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. And I will give you treasures hidden in the darkness--secret riches. I will do this so you may know that I am the LORD, the God of Israel, the one who calls you by name. 'And why have I called you for this work? Why did I call you by name when you did not know me? It is for the sake of Jacob my servant, Israel my chosen one. I am the LORD; there is no other God. I have equipped you for battle, though you don't even know me, so all the world from east to west will know there is no other God. I am the LORD, and there is no other. I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times. I, the LORD, am the one who does these things. NLT
For wisdom is better than rubies; and all the things that may be desired are not to be compared to it" (Proverbs 8:11, KJV).
I rejoice at Your word as one
who finds great treasure. Psalm 119:162
