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.
You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.
Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.
And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrificesGod is pleased.
Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
The will fight for you; you need only to be still.
Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.
Ah, Sovereign , you have made the heavens and the earth by your great power and outstretched arm. Nothing is too hard for you.
What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Today is Friday
