Therefore, get rid of all moral filth and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, which can save you.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him,
All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing.
Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?
But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.
Like the crackling of thorns under the pot, so is the laughter of fools. This too is meaningless.
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.
My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
Better a little with the fear of the LORD than great wealth with turmoil.
Today is Thursday
