He that keepeth his mouth keepeth his life: but he that openeth wide his lips shall have destruction.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
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.
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
For your ways are in full view of the LORD, and he examines all your paths.
Love the your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength.
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Surely God is my salvation;
I will trust and not be afraid.
The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense;
he has become my salvation.
Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle's.
However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me—the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.
Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
Whoever has my commands and keeps them is the one who loves me. The one who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I too will love them and show myself to them.
