1) Salvation!

2) Jesus Himself!

3) Loving Father!

  • Luke 15:11-32

4) A Family Of Brothers And Sisters (Body of Christ)!

  • Ephesians 4:15-16 – “Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will grow to become in every respect the mature body of him who is the head, that is, Christ.  From him the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does its work.”

5) The Holy Spirit!

  • Matthew 3:16 – “As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water.  At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’”

6) The Word Of God!

  • John 6:63 – “The Spirit gives life; the flesh counts for nothing.  The words I have spoken to you—they are full of the Spirit and life.”
  • Hebrews 4:12 – “For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.”

7) Provision!

  • Philippians 4:19 – “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.”

8) Treasures In Heaven!

  • Matthew 6:19-21 - “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.  But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

9) An Inheritance!

  • Ephesians 1:11,14 – “In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will”… “Who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory.”

10) An Eternal Home!
