This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.
Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.

For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
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.
Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
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.
