Luke 22:19-20> "This is My body which is given for you; This cup is the new covenant in My blood which is shed for you".
He gave His body as a sacrifice, He shed His blood to cleanse our sins, He was forsaken by His Father for our behalf, He who knew no sin became sin for us to be reconciled with the Father. He finished what was started in the garden, He defeated death, He was obedient to the Father, He loved us through the Father. He is Risen! He sits at the right hand of God awaiting the Glorious Day that we shall be reunited. He is the Christ the Son of the Living God, to whom we have our hope, for to whom else shall we go? For He is He who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty" (Revelation 1:8).

2 Corinthians 3:18> But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord.
When man was first created, he was covered with the very glory of God. It radiated from his inner being outward. You see, when you put your faith in the blood of Jesus and were born again, the glory of God once again took up residence in you.
The Bible says that as you gaze into the Lord’s face by studying the Word and fellow-shipping with Him, as you renew your mind to understand who you are in Christ, you’ll be changed into His image on the outside as well. As you learn to hear His voice and obey it, you’ll start giving outward expression of the glory within you. Little by little, you’ll be turned inside out!

Ecclesiastes 12:13> Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. KJV
There are so many things in this world that people fear but God tells us in His Word that we should only fear Him. It is not the fear of being afraid of Him but the fear that leads to obedience, the fear of not wanting to hurt Him, but trust Him. 1 Samuel 12:24 says
"Only fear the LORD and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. To fear God means that you love God so much that you don't want to hurt Him by continuing to sin and crucify Jesus again with your sinful actions. "The only way to remove fear is to repent of your sins and receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Then when Jesus lives in your heart His perfect love will cast out all fear and torment in you of things other than God). 1 John 4:18 KJV tells us, "There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love."

1 Corinthians 15;20 But Now Christ is risen from the dead, and become the First fruits of them that sleep.
This may seem like a insignificant verse, but by far it is one of the most important versus in the Bible. Because what is being said is We know that Jesus Christ was raised from the dead after He sacrificed Himself for our Sin. But Christ is not the Only one raised, but simply the First to be raised, The term "First Fruit" has to do with giving the first part of your Increases which in turn sanctifies the rest of your Financial Increases. Thus if Christ is the "First Fruit" of the Resurrection then all who believe and obey Him are Sanctified for the Resurrection to Come. Christ The Head of the Church was raised first and we His Body are Next whether we are sleep in death or still alive on Earth we shall rise.

Ephesians 2:8> For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God,
There is nothing that you have done or that you can or will do that has allowed you to be saved. The most that you could do is believe at the most. And even in your believing is that not even done of yourself. This scripture refers to the statement of salvation, not only the grace but the faith. Although we are required to believe for salvation, even faith is given as part of the gift of God which saves and cannot be exercised by one's own power. God's grace surpasses in every aspect of salvation. [Galatians 2:16 Yet we know that a person is made right with God by faith in Jesus Christ not by obeying the law. And we have believed in Christ Jesus, so that we might be made right with God because of our faith in Christ. For no one will ever be made right with God by obeying the law.
