3 Accrete: Meet, join, add, associate

4 ACCRETE JUSTICE For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5.20 (arc)* The righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees was exclusively abroad. They watched a lot of rules, prayed, sang, fasted, read the scriptures and attending church services in the synagogues. However, replacing the inner attitudes correct by external appearances. Here Jesus declares that the righteousness that God requires the believer goes beyond that. The heart and spirit, and not only external acts must conform to the will of God, in faith and love.(bsp)*

5 ACCRETE PEACE Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 1 Peter 3. 11 (arc)* Often we see peace as merely the absence of conflict, and think of peace as a passive role. But an effective peacemaker actively seeks peace by building good relations. The Peacemaker anticipate problems and deal with them before they happen. As conflicts arise, should be openly discussed and resolved before they become unmanageable. Appease may be a more difficult than waging war, but results in life and happiness.(bsap)*

6 ACCRETE JOY A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. Proverbs 15.13 (arc)* When a man has a happy heart, that happiness shining in his face. The inner joy and like a fire that does not can be contained. There's a sympathy between mind and body, so a happy mind is reflected in the expression of the countenance (Fausset, in loc.). This verse has been christened to refer to the happy man whose sins have been forgiven through the mass as of Christ, and that, therefore, has the joy of the Lord in your heart.(iot)*

7 ACCRETE FAITH And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth? Luke 18.7,8 (arc)* This question of Jesus, probably indicates that as the approaching return of Christ, evil will become increasingly worse, so that many of the church to depart from the faith in Christ (Matt. 24.11-13,24; 1 Tim. 4.1). As you approach, the concern of every Christian should be: I am persevering in faith, steadfast in prayer, seeking God for justice to prevail and triumph in their holy cause everything, forever? Or am I so concerned with things of this life, not yearning for the return of Christ and his eternal kingdom? (bsf)*

8 ACCRETE OBEDIENCE And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. Deuteronomy 28.2 (niv)* (see verses 3 a 14) Promises and prophecies abound in the Bible. God gives many assurances of his readiness to bless, and usually speaks of things he plans to do in the future. In both cases, there are always conditions: God's call to align his will so that his word of promise to bless the obedient. Cap. 28 is a classic study of the prophecies and promises of God. Compare vs. And 1-2 vs. 58-59 to see the blessings that are a potential promise to the obedient, and judgments, which are a certainty announced the disobedient. (bsf)*

9 ACCRETE HUMILITY Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Mateus 18.4 (arc)* Here humility is emphasized because the very feature that allows man to enter the kingdom is also the main element of greatness in that realm. The men, considering the requirements for success in this world, find sufficient reason to reject the theory that humility is what leads to true greatness. The ethics of this world simply illustrate that it is ever the humility that leads to greatness. However, Jesus spoke about the requirements of another world, where its king is not impressed by human pride or what, in this world, is reputed greatness.(int)*

10 ACCRETE FIDELITY And the Lord said, Who then is that faithful and wise steward, whom his lord shall make ruler over his household, to give them their portion of meat in due season? Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Luke 12.42,43 (aru)* Jesus promises a reward for those who are faithful to him. Although at times we may experience immediate rewards for our obedience to God, this is not the rule. If so, we would be tempted to boast of our accomplishments and will only do good for the rewards. Jesus said that if we seek the rewards now, not later we (Mark 8:36). Our heavenly prize will be according to what we do on earth, but will be much greater than we can imagine. (bsap)*

11 ACCRETE GRATITUDE As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in him: Rooted and built up in him, and stablished in the faith, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving. Colossians 2. 6 e 7 (niv)* It is recommended plenty of thanks to God. Those believers should recognize what Christ did, that the fruit had already been achieved between them, that they are grateful. The grateful heart has less tendency to deviate, and the faithful happy and thankful to Christ are drawn not by strange doctrines. Gratitude is highlighted as the very "atmosphere" in which believers should live and grow spiritually. (nti)*
