    ROMANS 15:18 FOR I WILL NOT DARE TO SPEAK OF ANY OF THOSE THINGS WHICH CHRIST HATH NOT WROUGHT BY ME TO MAKE THE GENTILES OBEDIENT BY WORD AND DEED 1 CORINTHIANS 11:1 BE YOU FOLLOWERS OF ME EVEN AS I ALSO AM OF CHRIST JOHN 12:49 FOR I HAVE NOT SPOKEN OF MYSELF BUT THE FATHER WHICH SENT ME HE GAVE ME A COMMANDMENT WHAT I SHOULD SAY AND WHAT I SHOULD SPEAK

    "The GOD of Hope!" All our immaturity and stupidity can be corrected and healed, so that we truly become "A Man (or Woman) after His own heart." Our own individual weakness and inadequacy is the very thing by which the Lord's strength is made perfect: especially in showing the world, that His grace has nothing to do with men's estimations and opinions about us. Jesus is our HOPE, and our Victory!
