We are fighting a battle!
We can never exhaust the truth in this one verse of 1:1
We see the God who is presented.
We see the God who is powerful
We see the God who is purposeful.
We see the God who is personal.
God, the Father chose to reveal Himself!
We all fall sooner or later, no one is exempt!!!
God ordains every step we take -
Proverbs 16:9 "A man's heart deviseth his way, but the Lord directeth his steps".
God promises, we will not be destroyed.
Proverbs 24:16 "For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief."
God controls every detail of life.
Psalm 37:23 "he delighteth in his way"
God takes pleasure in our struggle to walk in holiness.
Why Have Compassion for This World?
1. Cognizance of the lost

HOW CAN WE BE SURE?
Guarantee #1 - God made a Promise - vs. 13-14 "For when God made promise to Abraham, because he could swear by no greater, he sware by himself, Saying, surely blessing I will bless thee, and multiplying I will multiply thee."
Guarantee #2 - God swore an Oath - vs. 16-17 "For men verily swear by the greater; and an oath for confirmation is to them an end of all strife. Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise firmed it by an oath."
Guarantee #3 - God gave us an Anchor - vs. 19 "Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil."
Life Can Turn on a Dime!
