1 Peter 1:14-22
So you must live as God’s obedient children. Don’t slip back into your old ways of living to satisfy your own desires. You didn’t know any better then.
But now you must be holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.
For the Scriptures say, “You must be holy because I am holy.”
And remember that the heavenly Father to whom you pray has no favorites. He will judge or reward you according to what you do. So you must live in reverent fear of him during your time here as “temporary residents.”
For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And it was not paid with mere gold or silver, which lose their value.
It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God.
God chose him as your ransom long before the world began, but now in these last days he has been revealed for your sake.
Through Christ you have come to trust in God. And you have placed your faith and hope in God because he raised Christ from the dead and gave him great glory.
You were cleansed from your sins when you obeyed the truth, so now you must show sincere love to each other as brothers and sisters. Love each other deeply with all your heart.

So I’ve been doing a personal bible study journal and it’s been awesome. I was reading Romans 4,when I stormed on the word Circumcision. I couldn’t go forward without getting to understand what Apostle Paul was talking about. I prayed and the Holy Spirit led me. I did some research and added up. Be blessed.

“Who is this uncircumcised Philistine, that he should defy the armies of the living God?” 1 Samuel 17:26
You may be facing a giant today. He may be a giant of sickness or failure, of financial shortage or another kind of trouble. But don’t let him scare you. You have a secret weapon. A weapon that once turned a shepherd boy into a bear-busting, lion-killing, giant-slaying champion. That weapon was a blood covenant with Almighty God.

“For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” 1 Timothy 2:3-4
People go to great lengths trying to wring knowledge from God when all they need to do is go to the Bible. God’s not holding Himself back from anyone. It’s His will for every man and woman to walk in revelation of Him.
“Well now, Brother Copeland,” some say, “God’s not going to give all those sinners out here a revelation.” Really? Why do you think He sends evangelists to preach to them? Why do you think He sent His Word? To reveal the truth!
So, if you want to know that truth, just open the Book and read it. All of it…not just the parts that are in red. Those aren’t the only parts Jesus said. He said everything in Genesis. He said everything in Exodus. He said everything in Numbers. He said everything in Deuteronomy. He said everything in Leviticus. He said everything in Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. He said everything in Romans. He said everything in the Book. He is the Word!
In fact, if you’ll read Galatians 3, you’ll discover that every promise made to Abraham was for Jesus! It was the promises that brought Him. It was the promises that enabled Him to heal and deliver people. He didn’t minister by some special power no one else could have. He based His ministry on the revelations He’d received through faith in the written Word of God.
When the devil came to tempt Him, He didn’t fight him off with a special legion of angels who’d been assigned to protect Him because He was God’s Son. He fought him off with the phrase, “It is written.”
God has equipped you to do the same. He’s given you His written Word, and He’s given you His Holy Spirit to help you understand it. He’s more than ready to give you the knowledge you need. You don’t have to wring it out of Him―just open the Book and let the revelations begin.

“I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.” John 17:15-16
Being peculiar. That’s not something most of us work to achieve, is it? But, you know, we should. God has called us to be peculiar―to stand out from the rest of the world as living proof of His power and His love (1 Peter 2:9).

“The Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.” John 8:29
Jesus lived by faith. Did you know that? Some people don’t seem to realize that. They think that because He was the Son of God, He just floated through life with some mystical, supernatural power we could never have.

Mar 09, 2018 || Personal Notes
I used to be of the opinion that it’s better to hide your flaws than show it and also that others aren’t meant to see your weakness, oh well, it affected me so much because I became resentful and single-minded about everything and everyone. This was because I’ve been taken advantage of in the past when I opened up too much…

“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; and their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.” Hebrews 10:16-17
The Bible tells us that under Levitical law, an animal had to be offered every year to atone for the sins of the people. That word atone means “to cover” and it’s used continually throughout the Old Testament.
