In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said:
For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world.
Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
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,
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sinsand live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ.
Don't be misled--you cannot mock the justice of God. You will always harvest what you plant.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful.
Ah, Sovereign , you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
