Four Word Progress Part 1

FOR GIVING

God has given us His all. Life and breath (1). He gave us His Son (2), who in turn gave up His life (3), to give us His life (4). And with Jesus, God gave us all things that pertain to life and godliness (5). He gives us His Holy Spirit (6). He did all this for us so we could give to others (7). It's more blessed to give than receive, you know (8).

FORGIVING

Jesus’ death and resurrection made it possible for any and every sin to be forgiven (except the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit *shudder*, 9). God has forgiven us (10) so we should in turn forgive others (11; 12). Simple as that. No qualifiers.

(by the way, in forgiving us, He also FORGOT our sin—13)

FOR GETTING

In giving us Jesus, God got us back. No one's gonna take us from Him (14). We are seated in heavenly places with Him even now (15). He'll never leave us or forsake us (16). He's with us to the end (17).

FOR NOT FORGETTING

God knows us (18). This is absolutely beautiful: "Though the Lord be high…" (19) how high? ("far above all heavens" 20) "…yet He has respect unto the lowly." Stay humble, stay "lowly" (21), let Him lift you up and carry you (22).
