If you will Believe, God says:

” I have come into the world as light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.” John 12:46

” Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12

If we are kind and Generous to others, God says:

” Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.” Luke 6:38

” A generous man will himself be blessed, for he shares his food with the poor.” Proverbs 22:9

God will Comfort us and give us rest:

” God is our refuge and strength, an ever present help in trouble.” Psalm 46:1

“You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus” Gal. 3:26
