Ah, Sovereign , you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
But the Lord is faithful, and he will strengthen you and protect you from the evil one.
Therefore, since we have these promises, dear friends, let us purify ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, perfecting holiness out of reverence for God.
Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers,
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One.
So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.
Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.
Very truly I tell you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal lifeand will not be judged but has crossed over from death to life.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
