  • intervened in our brokenness

    • while we were still sinners

    • eternal covenant (perfectly done, complete); there is nothing left for you to do

  • “fashioned or fitted, complete, make perfect”

    • Hebrews 11:3 - “Prepared” - equip; fashioned

    • Phil. 2:12-13

DO HIS WILL

Until you see who He is and what He has done your heart will never turn to be all to do His will.

  • His working in us { equipping, fashioning }

  • His pleasure with us { He delights in you }

  • His provision for us { through Jesus Christ }

  • His glory through us

See * Be { equipped; conformed } * Do { the will of God; strive to please Him walking in obedience }
