1.The Absolute Truth God has Established v.1
2.The Generous Assets Gos has provided v. 2 i. Grace, Mercy and Peace ii. Remember that things are always better than you deserve iii. Mercies anew every single day - Lamentations 3:22-24 iV. Peace with and because of God.
3.The Sincere Appreciation for God's people v.3a i. Clear conscience ii. Be sensitive to the Holy Spirit iii. Rom 14:23, Acts 23:1, 1 Tim 1:5-3:9
